Low power quad-core Xeons from Intel
Intel Corporation has announced two new energy-efficient 50-watt server processors for its Xeon range. The quad-core parts require only 12.5 Watts per core, representing a 35 to almost 60 per cent decrease in power consumption compared to existing Xeon processors. The current range of quad core CPUs use 80 to 120 Watts respectively.

Based on the Intel Core architecture and named L5320 and L5310, the new 50-watt quad-core processors operate at 1.86 GHz and 1.60 GHz, respectively. Both feature a unique 8 megabytes (MB) of on die cache for faster memory data communication and run on dedicated 1066 MHz front side buses.

Price for the new processors in 1,000 unit quantities the L5320 is US$519 with the L5310 weighing in at US$455. The motherboard and chipset platform for the new processors is Intel's Bensley, and the CPUs are pin-compatible with it and do not require BIOS upgrades to run.

The new CPUs are destined for high-density data-centres where the low power usage is vital to reduce heat output and cooling requirements. Server consolidation is another market for Intel's new Xeon processors. With the lower power requirements and by deploying Intel's virtualisation technology, the chip giant says customers can save as much as US$6,000 (NZ$8,660) a year over the lifetime of each server, as compared to existing computer infrastructure.

Servers based on these new processors are expected to be available worldwide over the next few months from Acer, Dell, Digital Henge, Fujitsu Siemens, HP, HCL, IBM, Lenovo, Rackable Systems, Samsung, Verari, Wipro and other companies.
