With IDF now in full swing, Intel has revealed a bit more about the order of which Nehalem processors will become available come launch time and well into the new year.

 

Initially, we will see high-end desktop variants (Core i7) released along with server products code-named Nehalem-EP. From there, it's been mentioned that Intel are planning a second server oriented derivative designed specifically for the expandable server market, dubbed Nehalem-EX. The second half of 2009 will also see the birth of desktop Havendale and Lynnfield processors along with mobile variants codenamed Auburndale and Clarksfield.
