Santa Clara, Calif.Intel Corp. has unveiled the industry's first quad-core processors specifically designed for multi-processor (MP) servers.
According to Intel, the six Quad-Core Xeon 7300 series processors can deliver more than twice the performance and more than three times the performance per watt over its previous generation dual-core products. The devices complete the company's transition to its energy-efficient Core microarchitecture in less than 15 months.
In addition to twice the cores, the 7300 series and Intel 7300 chipset offer up to four times the memory capacity of Intel's previous MP platforms, enabling very large consolidation ratios that can reduce space, power and operation costs.
The 7300 series includes frequencies up to 2.93GHz at 130 watts, several 80-watt processors and a 50-watt version optimized for four socket blades and high-density rack form factors with a frequency of 1.86GHz.
