Intel Corp., the world’s biggest supplier of central processing units, has quietly unveiled new quad-core processors aimed at uni-processor servers. The new chips trim power consumption and may point to introduction of faster desktop processors based on Core 2 micro-architecture.
The new Intel Xeon processors are X3380 (3.16GHz, 12MB cache, 1333MHz PSB, 95W TDP) , L3360 (2.83GHz, 12MB cache, 1333MHz PSB, 65W TDP), L3110 (3.00GHz, 6MB cache, 1333MHz PSB, 45W TDP). The chips are compatible with LGA775 infrastructure with Xeon chip support.
The new processors further enhance the lineup of energy-efficient Intel Xeon DP microprocessors.
Intel’s new Xeon X3380, L3360, L3110 processors are priced at $530, $369, $224, respectively.
