Intel plans to introduce a low voltage Woodcrest server processor in the third quarter of this year, ahead of its original launch plans. The other Woodcrest CPUs will also be available in Q3, but in limited quantity in the early days.
The 40W 2.33GHz 1333FSB processor complements other chips it wants to position against AMD Opteron chips and partly displaces "Dempsey" stock keeping units (SKUs) it had intended to launch. Dempsey ranges from 130W to 95W, but Woodcrest, apart from the LV will hit 80W.
The Woodcrest 80W series includes the 5160, which is a 3GHz, 4MB cache, 1333MHz system bus processor; the 5150, which clocks at 2.66GHz; the LV 5148 at 2.33GHz; the 5140 at 2.33GHz; the 5130 at 2GHz; the 5120 at 1.86GHz and the 5110 at 1.60GHz. Woodcrest uses the LGA771 socket.
The Kentsfield desktop processor will also be used for entry-level servers. More details over at The Inquirer.
