Intel is planning to fade out DToS (DeskTop CPU on Server Platform) strategy on Entry UP server Platform, making desktop CPU be no more useable with new server chipset Intel 3000/3010. DToS strategy was introduced to fight to battle against AMD Opteron, which was very competitive to Netburst Xeon in both price and performance, making Intel lost lot of market share, especially on entry level. To save the market, Intel once made Pentium D dual core processors with Intel E7230 chipset for entry server. This DToS strategy was a great success, urged AMD to release another weapon Opteron 1xx (Socket 939).
