Intel Quad-core implementation

Posted Nov 9, 2007 11:00 UTC (Fri) by anton (subscriber, #25547) [Link]

The current Intel quad core packages are two dual-core chips in a multi-chip module (MCM), connected to a common bus. There is no glue logic (SMP logic is on each of the chips), and the memory controller is in a different package (the MCH).
