Intel "Intel's experimental 48-core 'single-chip cloud computer' is the latest step in multicore processing. Intel officials say such a chip will greatly improve performance and efficiency in future data centers, and will lead to new applications and interfaces between users and computers. Intel plans to have 100 or more chips in the hands of IT companies and research institutes next year to foster research into new software. Intel, AMD and others are rapidly growing the number of cores on a single silicon chip, with both companies looking to put eight or more cores on a chip in 2010."

I've read that it's based on P55C architecture,
You couldn't read about this chip, because there is no public info except of this announcement.
It is not a Larrabee, but different CPU. Althought they could reuse the core.

Isn't that P5 architeccture essentially what the Atom is based on?
Atom has nothing to do with P5. It is totally different.

Well, German online magazine says, these are similar to P55C-cores. They do not name sources, tough.
