Intel's 45nm server processors coming in 2008

This year Intel will position the 65nm dual-core Xeon 5100 (Woodcrest) and quad-core Xeon 5300 processors in the 2-way server market. The first 45nm quad-core (Harpertown) and dual-core (Wolfdale) chips aren't expected until 2008.
Intel has scheduled to continually raise the shipping ratio of Clovertown processors for 2-way servers from 30% in the first quarter 2007, to 70% in fourth quarter. While Woodcrest processors will drop from 60% in first quarter to 30% in fourth quarter, added the sources.

The longer product cycle is expected to help bring a measure of stabilization to the 2-way server market, as it enables manufacturers time to focus on developing product lines based on the two processor series, the sources explained.
