Intel introduces new Core i7, Xeon 3400 and first Core i5 Processors
Intel Corporation has introduced several high-performance desktop and server processors. The new Intel Core i5 processor family, two new Intel Core i7 processors and the Intel Xeon processor 3400 series bring Intelís latest Nehalem microarchitecture to mainstream desktop and entry server markets.

Formerly codenamed Lynnfield, these new chips are based on Intelís Nehalem microarchitecture and are designed for consumers who need top-notch performance for digital media, productivity, gaming and other demanding applications. These processors, along with the new Intel P55 express chipset, are available today.

All processors are lead and halogen-free and feature Intel exclusive Turbo Boost Technology. The top-of-the-line Core i7 processors also support Intel Hyper-Threading Technology. Combined, these features give computer users intelligent performance when necessary and optimum power-efficiency when the computer is lightly loaded.

The company says a new chipset brings the most revolutionary design changes since the invention of the PCI bus in the early 1990s and sets the stage for Intelís forthcoming 2010 compute platform. The Intel P55 Express Chipset will be the baseline building block component for motherboards worldwide, delivering great new levels of performance and scalability for everyone from the retail buyer to the technically savvy do-it-yourselfer.

The new Core i7 and i5 processors are the first Intel processors to integrate both a 16-lane PCI Express 2 graphics port and two-channel memory controller, enabling all input/output and manageability functions to be handled by the single-chip Intel P55 Express Chipset. Previous Intel chipsets required two separate chips.

A new Direct Media Interface (DMI) connects between the processor and chipset. The chipset supports 8 PCI Express 2.0 x1 Ports (2.5GT/s) for flexible device support. Dual graphics cards are supported in a 2x8 configuration. The chipset also supports 6 SATA 3 Gb/s Ports with Intelģ Matrix Storage Technology providing RAID levels 0/1/5/10. Up to 14 USB 2.0 Ports can be supported with the chipsetís integrated USB 2.0 Rate Matching Hub, along with Intel High Definition Audio for premium digital sound.

The new processors are the first to be supported by the new Land Grid Array (LGA) 1156 package and socket technology.
Better Entry Servers

Intelís new Xeon processors and Intel 3400 and 3420 chipset products improve small business productivity by running email, file, print and dynamic Web serving tasks more efficiently. They also improve education by enabling dependable classroom collaboration and making school administrative services more productive.

Servers based on Xeon 3400 processors provide more dependability over desktop systems through differentiated features such as Error Correcting Code memory and RAID 0/1/5/10 for server operating systems. They are designed to help small businesses grow by enabling up to 64 percent2 more sale transactions and up to 56 percent faster business response time.
This improvement is enabled with Intelís Nehalem microarchitecture and a 4x improvement in memory capacity (32 GB).

Intel Turbo Boost Technology and Intel Hyper-Threading Technology enable these servers to automatically adapt their performance to unique business needs. The processors launched today also include the Intel Xeon L3426, a low-power variant that delivers up to 188 percent improvement in energy efficiency per dollar than the previous-generation Intel Xeon X3380, and enables innovative server form factors for space and thermally constrained environments.
