Key platform for multi-processing consolidation is going to be Truland platform, which promises to be 15% faster:

Later they will also deliver Tulsa platform.

To demonstrate that the platforms discussed are ready to take off, Pat invited a colleague from Hewlett-Packard, who introduced the complete HP product line-up including workstations, ProLiant servers and Blade systems. He also demonstrated the power of dual-core with well-balanced system architecture on a Woodcrest dual-core dual-processor platform. It was running against a Sun system with AMD CPU inside and revealed 1.4x advantage

Another platform mentioned in the today’s presentation was the Bensley platform:

As you can see from the picture above I/OAT (I/O Acceleration Technology) is a part of Bensley platform. And today it was available for demonstration. We could see two systems running side by side with a 6Gbit channel. However, the Bensley platform with I/OAT utilized only 15% of the CPU resources, compared with 44% of CPU resources in case of a previous generation platform without I/O acceleration technology.

In conclusion I would like to offer you a screenshot of the world’s first Clovertown-MP live demo with two quad-core processors:
