Default Intel GPU/CPU combo in 2009?

Intel may be planning to follow them up with new chips integrating a GPU with the CPU in 2009 - at least according to the Reg.

Bloomfield will apparently feature a 1366 pin socket (ouch) and feature "QuickPath" - Intel's answer to AMD's "HyperTransport" along with up to three channels of DDR3 memory. The new core apparently will have 8MB of L2 and use QuickPath to connect to a "Tylersburg" northbridge that will provide PCIe 2.0 lanes.

Strangely enough, less than six months later there will apparently be a "Lynnfield" going to a 1160 pin socket with four cores and hyperthreading, 8MB of L2, dual DDR3 channels, using PCIe as a chip to chip bus. Frankly, this sounds weird to me. Why on earth would Intel go to a 1366 pin chip, to go to a 1160 pin chip less than six months later?

I don't think they got it at all. Those are new server, desktop, and mobile sockets.

Intel has taken to launching its premium flagship CPU on server boards, hence why the 1366 socket launches first, e.g. QX9650... LGA1366 will be the new server socket.

Intel only launches the mainstream processors next quarter just as they are doing now in the case of Penryn, which is why LGA1160 will be released after LGA1366. Finally ithat 989 pin rPGA socket will be the mobile Nehalem socket, because it obviously is not going to be compatible with the current one, just as LGA775 and LGA771 won't be.
