From Arstechnica:

Intel's pre-IDF briefing today offered a significant look at the chip giant's roadmap for 2008-2009, as well as some specific information on upcoming products that the company has previously kept quiet. Tukwila, Larrabee, Dunnington, and Nehalem were all topics of conversation as Intel laid out its 2008 strategy.

Tukwila (pictured below) wasn't a major topic of conversation, but senior vice president Pat Gelsinger did briefly discuss the capabilities of the upcoming IA-64 processor. Tukwila will be a quad-core chip with a total of 30MB of cache, will include Intel's QPI (Quick Path Interconnect), and will feature dual integrated memory controllers. Intel's official estimate is that the new architecture will offer up to 1.9x the performance of a dual-core Itanium 9100-series processor.
