IDF 2007: That's what Pat claims

Nehalem will be a native eight core CPU and this is exactly what Pat Gelsinger said to Huan from Chilehardware. This comes as a kind of surprise as the company didn't really like the native quad core concept.

Now with 45 nanometre Intel thinks it can pull it off, but company sources said a few times that quad core is the first Nehalem incarnation.

We don't think that native eight core is an easy piece of hardware and Intel still hasn't found its peace with the native quad core Barcelona.
