Intel Woodcrest to use Socket 771

DailyTech reports the Intel Woodcrest processor will be the first to use the new Socket 771:
We should stress that Woodcrest will not show up exclusively on Socket 771. Embedded systems using PGA CPUs will be the only platforms affected -- and they are hardly consumer level components. Manufacturers had told us that Socket 771 was originally for Sossaman (server grade Yonah Core CPUs), but it appears those forecasts were a little premature.
