Nehalem - Intel's next gen CPU architecture

The new architecture will give us a balance between performance and power savings.

Performance:
More cores! 4. 6, 8, and more.
Built-in overclocking ... Bin up 1, 2, or 3 on one or more cores to handle those demanding threads running on that core.
Memory controller built into the CPU.

Power savings:
Cores can scale back their power consumption.
More tasks accompished per clock cycle.

Looks like we will have some pretty neat stuff to help our clients reduce their power footprint all the while gaining performance from their servers.

Not to forget the VT enhancements such as VT-d.
