Intel six-core Dunnington to ship this month

Posted on Saturday, September 06 2008 @ 02:20:32 CEST by

CNET writes Intel will roll outs its first six-core processor this month. The new Xeon 7400 series is codenamed Dunnington and will be the final member of the Penryn processor family.
Server vendors announcing products will include Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard, and Dell, according to Intel senior vice president Pat Gelsinger, speaking at the Intel Developer Forum last month. Other server makers such as IBM and Unisys are also expected to have systems.

The Xeon 7400 boasts significantly better performance due to its large 16MB cache memory and half a dozen cores.

Dunnington is also one of the first Intel chips to have a monolithic design (Nehalem will too). In other words, all six cores will be on one piece of silicon. To date, for any processor having more than two cores, Intel has put two separate pieces of silicon--referred to as die--inside of one chip package.
