Intel Introduces Quad-Core Processor Families
Posted on 14-Nov-2006 21:32. | Tags Filed under: News.



Intel Corporation is introducing four CPUs inside a single microprocessor with the introduction of the Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5300 and Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 quad-core processor families. These products promise increased speed and responsiveness for general purpose servers, workstations, digital media creation, high-end gaming and other market segments that crave absolute performance.

Intel began the transition to multi-core technology in 2002 with Intel Hyper-threading technology, followed by the introduction of the industryís first dual-core PC processors in April 2005. The company has recently refreshed its product line by introducing more than 30 new desktop and server processors based on the Intel Core microarchitecture, a more powerful yet energy efficient design.

Intel's next step in processors evolution was made possible due to continued investment in silicon process and manufacturing technology, innovative and tailored product design and a myriad of software developer tools and programs.

The new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series sets some new world records on industry standard benchmarks, including a Dell PowerEdge 2950 server running BEA JRockit JVM capable of delivering SPECjbb2005 result of 210,0652 BOPS, 61 percent better than the next best result.

Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor 5300 series servers provide more headroom for server virtualisation, with up to 50 percent faster performance within the same thermal envelope and at the same cost as the previous generation Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series launched less than five months ago.

Four Intel Xeon processors are launching today at clock speeds ranging from 1.60GHz to 2.66GHz, with front side bus (FSB) speeds ranging from 1066MHz to 1333MHz, and thermal design power (TDP) of either 80 watts or a performance optimised 120 watt option.

In the first quarter of 2007, Intel will launch two more quad-core Xeon processors - a low voltage version for ultra-dense deployments with a TDP of only 50 watts and a processor designed for single socket workstations and servers.

The other family of processors, the Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor QX6700, is up to 80 percent faster than the companyís current Intel Core 2 Extreme Processor X6800. This is the first quad-core desktop processor available, running at with 2.66GHz with a 1066MHz FSB. The processor runs on Intelís existing 975X Express chipset family.

The company plans to offer a mainstream quad-core processor starting in the first quarter of next year under the brand name Intel Core 2 Quad processor. The processor will be an ideal choice for processor intensive, highly threaded programs such as entertainment, gaming and multimedia activities.
