Intel's Core 2 Duo based server processor will be released next month, it will be branded as Xeon 3000.
System builders told CRN that the CPU will effectively replace current Pentium D processors that some system makers -- including top tier manufacturers such as Dell and IBM -- have been using to power entry-level servers for small businesses.

System builders said they believe the Xeon 3000 series will be made up of the top-performing Core 2 Duo chips and is designed for one socket, or what Intel calls uniprocessor, servers. One system builder said Xeon 3000 processors will be paired with the Mukilteo-2 chipset, which he believed will offer some entry-level reliability and manageability features unavailable in the desktop chipsets.
