DigiTimes talks about Intel's plans for its 1-way server product range:
Intel's high-end server products will feature its Kentsfield quad-core desktop processor, the Xeon 3200, or its dual-core Conroe Xeon 3000 processor, while entry-level products will be based on the Xeon 3000 or the Pentium D series, sources with Taiwan's server makers indicated.
IBM, Dell, Hewlett Packard (HP) and other major PC vendors have been promoting the adoption of 1-way servers for personal and home office use. With these servers usually based on the Pentium 4 and less expensive components, the average selling price (ASP) of 1-way servers have been dropping fast.
Intel is adjusting the product range in order to stabilize the ASP by continuing serving the enterprise market with the high-end lines, the sources commented. At the same time, Intel can help PC vendors to market their entry-level 1-way servers to personal and home office users, the sources added.
