Gulftown or Westmere-EP is the codename of an up to six-core hyperthreaded Intel processor able to run up to 12 threads in parallel. It is based on Westmere microarchitecture, the 32 nm shrink of Nehalem. Originally rumored to be called the Intel Core i9, it is sold as an Intel Core i7. The first release was the Core i7 980X in the first quarter of 2010, along with its server counterpart, the Xeon 3600 and the dual-socket Xeon 5600 (Westmere-EP) series using identical chips.

  • Le microprocesseur Gulftown d'Intel est un processeur hexa-core, appartenant à la famille Westmere. Il se connecte sur un socket LGA1366 et possède 12 Mio de mémoire cache L3. Les premiers Gulftown sont commercialisés début 2010. Initialement prévus pour inaugurer la gamme Core i9, ils sont finalement intégrés à la gamme Core i7. Le premier Gulftown est le Core i7 980X cadencé à 3,33 GHz, suivi du Core i7 970 cadencé à 3,2 GHz. Certaines cartes mères utilisant un chipset X58 et sorties avant le Gulftown sont compatibles grâce à une mise à jour du BIOS. Intel devrait mettre à jour la gamme Gulftown en 2011 : la version Extreme cadencée à 3,46 GHz pourrait s’appeler « Core i7 990X » et la version « non Extreme » serait le Core i7 980 à 3.33 GHz. (fr)
  • Gulftown è la futura evoluzione del processore Intel Xeon DP per sistemi biprocessore, e andrà a sostituire il core Gainestown. Dovrebbe inoltre essere anche il successore del Core i7 Bloomfield e andare così a occupare anche la fascia più alta del settore desktop, dove continuerà ad appartenere alla famiglia Core i7 Extreme (e probabilmente in un secondo tempo anche alla più semplice Core i7). L'arrivo sui mercati è stato il 16 marzo 2010, è basato sulla seconda generazione dell'architettura Nehalem (a sua volta successiva all'Intel Core Microarchitecture), originariamente introdotta nella gamma Xeon DP proprio dal core Gainestown nel primo trimestre del 2009; tale seconda generazione è conosciuta mediante il nome in codice Westmere.

  • Gulftown is de codenaam van een processorreeks van Intel die de Nehalem-microarchitectuur gebruikt. Het is de opvolger van de Intel Core i7-975. De processoren werden als Intel Core i7 op de markt gebracht. Oorspronkelijk werd er verondersteld dat Gulftown-processoren als Intel Core i9 zouden verkocht worden. De eerste Gulftown-processoren waren de Core i7-970 en de Core i7-980 XE die beide in 2010 verschenen. De Gulftown is opgebouwd als hexacore. Hexacore wil zeggen dat de processor zes rekenkernen gebruikt. Per core kunnen de Gulftown-processoren twee threads behandelen zodat hij in staat is om simultaan twaalf threads te behandelen. De Gulftown-processoren hebben een uitbreiding van het level-3 cachegeheugen. Deze wordt vergroot van 8 tot 12 MB. Qua infrastructuur gebruikt de processoren dezelfde als die van andere i7-9xx's, namelijk de LGA 1366. Het is daarmee mogelijk om ze op hetzelfde moederbord te plaatsen. Deze processoren zijn op 32 nm gebakken. (nl)

  • Gulftown or Westmere-EP is the codename of an up to six-core hyperthreaded Intel processor able to run up to 12 threads in parallel. It is based on Westmere microarchitecture, the 32 nm shrink of Nehalem. Originally rumored to be called the Intel Core i9, it is sold as an Intel Core i7. The first release was the Core i7 980X in the first quarter of 2010, along with its server counterpart, the Xeon 3600 and the dual-socket Xeon 5600 (Westmere-EP) series using identical chips. First figures indicate that at equivalent clock rates, depending on the software, it has up to 50% higher performance than the identically clocked quad-core Bloomfield Core i7-975. However, consumer software that utilizes six real cores is still quite rare as of 2011, and not every multithreaded program is able to take advantage of this many cores. Despite having 50% more transistors, the CPU strongly benefits from the 32-nm process, drawing the same or even less power (depending on the operating system) than its Bloomfield predecessors with merely four cores. The thermal design power (TDP) of all planned models is stated to be 130 watts. Westmere-EP is the first six-core dual-socket processor from Intel, following the quad-core Bloomfield and Gainestown (a.k.a. Nehalem-EP) processors using the same LGA 1366 package, while the earlier Dunnington six-core processor is a Socket 604 based multi-socket processor. The CPUID extended model number is 44 (2Ch) and two product codes are used, 80613 for the UP desktop/server models and 80614 for the Xeon 5600-series DP server models. In some models, only four of the six cores are enabled. As of 2015, Xeon 3600 and 5600 series Westmere-EP processors have become somewhat sought after as an upgrade route for older X58 motherboards. In many cases, proper BIOS support has allowed users to fit these 6-core processors onto boards originally designed for 2 or 4-core processors. In fully threaded workloads, total system performance will increase by a value equal to the number of cores added (i.e. moving from a 4-core 2.6 GHz to a 6-core 2.6 GHz system would enable 50% more total processing power). With proper BIOS support and the correct supporting components, many users have reported substantial overclocking potential, often as high as 4.4 GHz while staying within Intel's maximum allowed voltages (no higher than 1.35v for the core or the uncore). For gaming, such a system is proving remarkably competitive against much newer, and usually more expensive processors; the supply of second-hand chips from decommissioned servers is finite, however.
