current i7's ARE Nehalem - thats the core name, and why the -1 on the ecc remark?

These babys are like Core 2's without the memory/throughput starvation from the FSB (not as bad on the desktop front atleast for 4 cores etc), now Intel is a real player in the server front.

[citation][nom]SneakySnake[/nom]What is the difference between normal i7 and Nehalem?[/citation]
Beside the fact that i7 = Nehalem, it may be the socket. From what I've read, LGA 1567 may be the socket for these Xeon processors.

For 55xx it's still FC-LGA1366/Socket B, but RAM signaling has 3x8 supplementary ECC data lines and corresponding memory controller with RAS/control/status/test registers/bits.
