Intel Announces Quad-Core Products for Server and High End Users
Intel has previewed its forthcoming Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series, products with four processors inside, for workstations and servers codename Clovertown. Also shown was the Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor codename Kentsfield, targeted at the enthusiast market segment.

Available this year, the products are based on the Intel Core microarchitecture and deliver socket compatibility with existing Intel platforms.

The chips will enhance technology and performance by delivering up to 50 percent more performance within the same power requirements of current dual-core generation.

The company also highlighted several new industry standards initiatives. Intel and IBM have co-developed a specification for a new PCI Express technology, codenamed ‘Geneseo,’ that would extend the standard to include co-located hardware on the bus. The goal is to make such tasks as visualisation and media processing, math intensive data crunching and content processing faster and more efficient than existing add-in cards or software approaches.

Intel and IBM plan to further collaborate with the PCI-SIG, the group that maintains PCI and PCI Express specifications.

Intel also has extended the Intel Xeon processor line, targeting lower-end, single-processor servers typically used for home offices and small businesses with the introduction of the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 3000 series, improving server performance and power efficiency. Intel also launched the latest ultra-dense Dual Core Intel Xeon Processor 5148 that features a low thermal design point of only 40 watts.
