Intel has confirmed that it is on schedule to start producing its multicore Nehalem processors in the fourth quarter of this year, with a mobile version of the chips expected in 2009.

Intel plans to replace the Core microarchitecture used in its current product line with Nehalem microarchitecture. It will initially manufacture Nehalem with the same 45-nanometer process that it uses to product it top-line Penryn chips.

Nehalem processors have from two to eight cores and include up to 8M bytes of level 3 cache. The first ones will be used for servers and top-of-the-range desktops.

The mobile version of the Nehalem processor will be part of a new version of Centrino 2, code-named Calpella, due for release in June.

Calpella will provide WiMax as well as Wi-Fi connectivity, and smaller components could be introduced to reduce the size in preparation for the production of small laptops.
