|Intel Continues Push Down Power-Optimization Path With Intel® Xeon™
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Completing an era in enterprise computing and signaling
the beginning of a new generation of platforms and capabilities, Intel Corporation today 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.
aggressively driving the transformation to an entire new generation of multi-core servers. As the most
widely-deployed 64-bit platform in the industry, Xeon is the clear server and workstation workhorse for business,"
said Diane Bryant, vice president of Intel's Digital Enterprise Group and general manager of Intel's Server
Platforms Group. "And as we support the transition to multi-core enterprise computing, Intel is already sampling
next-generation processors and platforms that will consume orders of magnitude less power and incorporate new
platform technologies that deliver leadership manageability, virtualization and I/O efficiency."
As part of its strategy to improve power efficiency, Intel today introduced low voltage versions of its Intel
Xeon processors. They include the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor LV 3 GHz1 with only a 55W processor power envelope and
the 64-bit Intel Xeon processor MV 3.20 GHz 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 3.80 GHz 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 2.80 GHz with 2MB L2
cache for servers used in small and medium business environments.
"Building on our history of
delivering high-performance and innovative platforms to customers in high volume, Intel has an impressive roadmap of
dual-core and multi-core Intel Xeon platforms under development," said Bryant.
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
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.
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
Pricing and Availability
64-bit Intel Xeon processors with 2MB L2 cache at
operating speeds of 3.80 GHz and 2.80 GHz are available now for $851 and $198, respectively, in 1,000-unit
quantities. The 64-bit Intel Xeon processor LV 3 GHz is priced at $519 in 1,000-unit quantities. And the 64-bit
Intel Xeon processor MV 3.20 GHz is priced at $487 in 1,000 unit quantities.
