Intel Unveils Its Last Single-Core Server Processor
Intel announced availability of its last planned single-core Intel Xeon processor. Intel also announced new low-voltage versions of its Intel Xeon processor line as the company shifts to enterprise platforms with processors having two or more cores. They include the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor LV 3GHz with only a 55W processor power envelope and the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor MV 3.20GHz with a 90W processor power envelope. Both processors are targeted at server rack and blade designs where space is constrained and power-efficiency is a priority.
Intel also introduced a new 64-bit Intel Xeon processor with 2MB of L2 cache running at 3.80GHz that is drop-in compatible with the previous Intel Xeon processor platforms and continues to offer power-saving features with Demand Based Switching, enhanced performance and flexibility with support for Hyper-Threading Technology, DDR2-400 memory and PCI Express. Additionally, Intel introduced a 64-bit Intel Xeon processor 2.80GHz with 2MB L2 cache for servers used in small and medium business environments.
64-bit Intel Xeon processors with 2MB L2 cache at operating speeds of 3.80GHz and 2.80GHz are available now for $851 and $198, respectively, in 1,000-unit quantities. The 64-bit Intel Xeon processor LV 3GHz is priced at $519 in 1,000-unit quantities. And the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor MV 3.20GHz is priced at $487 in 1,000 unit quantities.
In the coming weeks, Intel will introduce its first dual-core Intel Xeon processor, codenamed "Paxville." Originally scheduled in 2006, Paxville will deliver improved performance for both dual-processor (DP) and multi-processor (MP)-based servers.
In early 2006, Intel will deliver another server platform, codenamed "Bensley," including a dual-core Intel Xeon processor, codenamed "Dempsey," a chipset optimized for dual-core, codenamed "Blackford," and technologies that will improve performance, manageability, reliability and productivity. At that time Intel will bring to market a dual-core Intel Xeon processor-based workstation platform, codenamed "Glidewell," also including the Dempsey processor, and a new chipset, optimized for workstations, codenamed "Greencreek."
To further efforts in reducing server power consumption, in 2006 Intel also plans to deliver a new dual-core processor, codenamed "Sossaman," targeted at power-constrained environments.
Later in 2006, Intel will introduce a dual-core Intel Xeon processor-based platform, codenamed "Woodcrest," designed on Intel's advanced 65-nanometer technology manufacturing process. Woodcrest, based on the company’s next-generation, power-optimized micro-architecture, will offer dramatically improved performance and greatly reduced power consumption.
