Intel says that the first Nehalem-based product will be quad-core and will feature 8MB of L3 cache, which means that around 2,256KB of L3 cache will be reserved for a copy of the L1 and L2 caches on each core.
This does cut the available size for everything else to about 6MB and this is quite a drop from the current 2x6MB shared cache design on current quad-core 45nm parts.
