HotHardware has new details regarding 2007's "tick", the Penryn core, and next year's "tock", the Nehalem core, which also all ushers in significant changes with Intel's platform architecture as a whole. According to this new information, Nehalem can execute two threads per core and in some configurations will feature on-die memory controllers and an integrated graphics engine.
