Intel's New CPU Notation To Take Effect In November

According to the source referring to Intel's server roadmap, the company is going to update its CPU notation to make it more clear. The new markings will include "energy class", so users will be able to understand what chassis a processor requires. The notation will take effect along with the rollout of quad-core Xeons based on Covertown core.

Speaking of this Xeon 5300 series, 'X' prefix will mean 120W TDP "energy class". The first product will be the Xeon X5355 (2.66 GHz, 4MB x 2 L2, 1333 MHz FSB). At the moment of announcement it will be priced $1.172.

The middle-range price segment will be offered 3 E-class models which means 80W TDP: Xeon E5310 (1.6 GHz, 4MB x 2 L2, 1066 MHz FSB), E5320 (1.83 GHz, 4MB x 2 L2, 1066 MHz FSB) and E5345 (2.33 GHz, 4MB x 2 L2, 1333 MHz FSB). These will be priced $455, $690 and $851, respectively.

Also interesting are low-voltage Covertown-based processors. In Q1'2007 the company promises to release Xeon L5310. While being similar to E5310 with its 1.6 GHz, 4MB x 2 L2 and 1066 MHz FSB, the low-voltage solution will have 50W TDP or 12.5W per core. Pricing for this one hasn't been announced yet.
