44 quad-core Intel processors are as powerful as 9000 Pentium Pro's

Posted on Friday, November 10 2006 @ 01:11:14 CET by

Intel says 44 quad-core Xeon 5300 series processors deliver a performance of 1.8 TFlops, which is about as much as the performance you'll get from 9000 Pentium Pro processors about ten years ago.
The 1996 platform consumed about 1500 square feet of floor space and consumed about 800,000 watts. The quad-core chips fit in servers with a floor space of about 16 square feet and consume less than 10,000 watts, Intel said.

Clovertown processors combine two Xeon 5100 (Woodcrest) cores into one package. According to industry sources, Intel will launch three "regular" Clovertown processors as well as one "extreme" version this Sunday. The E5310 (1.6 GHz, FSB1066, 8 MB L2 cache) will be priced at $455, the E5320 (1.86 GHz, FSB1066, 8 MB) will have a tray price of $690 and the E5345 (2.33 GHz, FSB1333, 8 MB) will cost $851. The X5355 will mark the top end of the family with 2.66 GHz, FSB1333 and 8 MB L2 cache for $1172.
