Intel Xeon 3000 processor family coming in August

Posted on Thursday, Jun 29 2006 @ 16:27 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Intel will roll out its Xeon 3000 processor family in the middle of August to replace the current dual-core Pentium D chips that the company is currently shipping for the uni-processor server market.
Intel has followed the Taiwan industry's so-called "DeskTop on Server (DToS)" project, by enabling its dual-core desktop processors to be available also for its uni-processor server product line, the sources noted. The dual-core Conroe processors were originally planned to start replacing the Pentium D series from the third quarter of 2006, the sources said. However, the "DToS" scheme has effectively been removed from Intel's latest roadmap, by positioning the "Xeon 3000" entry-level CPU family as Intel's next-generation uni-processor server offering, according to the sources.
