Intel To Deliver Dual-Core, Hyper-Threaded Server Platforms Earlier Than Expected
Intel announced it is accelerating the availability of dual-core, hyper-threaded Intel Xeon processors and Intel Xeon processors MP. In addition, Intel has begun a broad evaluation program of thousands of dual-core platforms for software developers and enterprise customers.
Originally due in 2006, Intel plans to introduce the dual-core Intel Xeon processor MP, codenamed "Paxville", for servers with four or more processors later in 2005. Paxville is claimed to provide more than 60% performance boost over previous generations (Java Performance) and will use the Intel E8500 chipset, which has been architected for dual-core performance and was introduced earlier this year.
For dual processor servers, Intel plans to ship a dual-core Intel Xeon processor, codenamed "Paxville DP" in 2005. Paxville DP will deliver up to 50% improved performance over previous generations (same Java Performance) and will use the Intel E7520 chipset.
Paxville DP is targeted at early adopters and evaluators of dual-core technology and is to be followed by a broader family of dual-core Intel Xeon processor-based platforms, codenamed "Bensley" for servers and "Glidewell" for workstations, in the first quarter of 2006. Bensley and Glidewell are targeted to complete the transition to dual-core top to bottom in Intelís entire server and workstation line-up.
Both 64-bit Paxville and Paxville DP processors will utilize Intel Hyper-Threading Technology and will also include enhanced security features such as Execute Disable Bit and improved power management with Demand Based Switching.
At the moment Intel has 17 multi-core projects under development and expects more than 85% of its server volume exiting 2006 to be multi-core processors.
