Intel’s Quad Core for High end Servers


Intel Corporation has unveiled the industry’s first quad-core processors specifically designed for multi-processor (MP) servers running applications requiring uncompromised performance, reliability and scalability. The six new Quad-Core Xeon 7300 series processors can deliver more than twice the performance and more than three times the performance per watt over the company’s previous generation dual-core products. They complete the company’s speedy transition to its innovative and energy-efficient Core™ microarchitecture. This platform’s energy-efficient performance, coupled with enhanced virtualization capabilities, will enable customers to significantly lower their total cost of ownership.

The energy-efficient 7300 series includes frequencies up to 2.93GHz at 130 watts, several 80-watt processors and a 50-watt version optimized for four socket blades and high-density rack form factors with a frequency of 1.86GHz. The Intel 7300 chipset with Data Traffic Optimizations provides a balanced platform design with several new technologies that enhance data movement between the processors, memory and I/O connections.  

By delivering the benefits of the Intel Core Microarchitecture with quad-core performance and Intel Virtualization Technology to these high-end servers, Intel is providing customers with an ideal platform for virtualization and server consolidation. In addition to twice the cores, the 7300 series and Intel 7300 chipset offer up to four times the memory capacity of Intel’s previous MP platforms, enabling very large consolidation ratios that can reduce space, power and operation costs.
