Ars Technica has updated their paedia to include the new Core microarchitecture from Intel. Make sure you get a fresh cup of coffee, the article is as long and indepth as you would expect, maybe even more so.
"This past IDF saw the unveiling of some significant details about this new microarchitecture, which was formerly called "Merom" but now goes by the official name of "Core." (You'll also see Core called NGMA, an acronym for "next-generation microarchitecture.") Intel presented many of these details in a presentation on Core, and others were obtained by David Kanter of Real World Technologies. The present article draws on both of those sources, as well as my own correspondence with Intel, to paint what is (hopefully) an accessible picture of the new microarchitecture that will soon be powering everything from Windows Vista servers to Apple laptops."
