Intel Ignites Quad-Core Era


Intel today oficially kicked off the computer industry's multi-core PC era with the introduction of the Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5300 and Intel Core2 Extreme quad-core processor families.

These products deliver immense speed and responsiveness for general purpose servers and workstations and for digital media creation, high-end gaming and other market segments that crave absolute performance.

Intel began the transition to multi-core technology 4 years ago with Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology), followed by the introduction of the industry's first dual-core PC processors in April last year. Intel recently refreshed its entire product line by introducing over 40 new processors, including those based on the revolutionary Intel Core microarchitecture, a more powerful yet energy-efficient design.

"Today's announcement ushers in another new era in computing," said Paul Otellini, Intel's president and CEO. "The capabilities of quad-core microprocessors will bring new possibilities for science, entertainment and business. I'm incredibly proud of what Intel?s employees have achieved with these new products."



Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series

The new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series sets new world records on key industry standard benchmarks:

A Dell PowerEdge 2950 server running BEA JRockit JVM delivered a record breaking SPECjbb2005 result of 210,065 BOPS, as much as 61 percent better than the next result.

Using the SPECint_rate_base2000 benchmark, which measures integer throughput, Fujitsu-Siemens PRIMERGY TX300 S3 set a new world record with a score of 200, up to 63 percent better than the previous record.

An HP ProLiant ML370 G5 server running TPC-C benchmark, which measures database performance, shattered the previous record by as much as 42 percent with a score of 240,737 tpmC at $1.85/tpmC.

An IBM System x3650 server running the LS-DYNA 3-vehicle-collision workload, a leading high-performance computing benchmark, set a new record for a single-node performance.

In addition, OEMs have published record-breaking results on SAP-SD 2-Tier, SPECWeb 2005, SPECfp _rate_base2000, Fluent and SPECapc 3dsmax Rendering benchmarks.

Quad-core Intel Xeon Processor 5300 series servers provide more headroom for server virtualization than any other two-processor, standard, high-volume server platform. The new processors deliver up to 50 percent faster performance within the same thermal envelope and at the same cost as the previous generation Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5100 series launched less than 5 months ago.

Four Intel Xeon processors are launching today at clock speeds ranging from 1.60GHz to 2.66GHz, with front side bus (FSB) speeds ranging from 1066MHz to 1333MHz, and thermal design power (TDP) of either 80 watts or a performance-optimized 120 watt option. In the first quarter next year, Intel will launch two more quad-core Xeon processors ? a low-voltage version for ultra-dense deployments with a TDP of only 50 watts and a processor designed for single-socket workstations and servers.

Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor QX6700

The world's best desktop processor for multimedia applications, the Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor QX6700 is up to 80 percent faster than the company's current Intel Core 2 Extreme Processor X6800.

The Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor QX6700 is available at 2.66GHz with a 1066MHz FSB. The processor runs on Intel?s existing 975X Express chipset family.

The company plans to offer a mainstream quad-core processor starting in the first quarter next year under the Intel Core 2 Quad processor brand name. The processor will be an ideal choice for processor-intensive, highly threaded programs such as entertainment, gaming and multimedia activities.

Pricing and Availability

Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor X5355 2.66GHz 1333MHz 8MB 120W $1172

Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor E5345 2.33GHz 1333MHz 8MB 80W $851

Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor E5320 1.86GHz 1066MHz 8MB 80W $690

Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor E5310 1.60GHz 1066MHz 8MB 80W $455

Intel Core 2 Extreme quad-core processor QX6700 2.66GHz 1066MHz 8MB 130W$999
