During IDF Intel officially announced two new 2.6 and 2.8 GHz Xeon processors with 512KB L2 cache, designed for servers and workstations. Chips are made using 0.13-micron process technology.
The company recommends i860, supporting Rambus DRAM, dual-processor configurations, and AGP4x, as a chipset for Xeon workstation motherboards. Dual-processor Xeon servers can be based on Intel E7500 chipset.
New Xeon wholesale price (over 1,000-unit consignments) is $562 for 2.8 GHz chip and $433 for 2.6 GHz chip.
Yesterday we introduced a dual-CPU x4000 from Hewlett-Packard, based on 2.8 GHz Intel Xeons. Today Dell announced its workstations on 2.80/2.60 GHz Xeons.
