Intel unveils 50W Quad-core processor

Posted on Monday, March 12 2007 @ 16:11:28 CET by

Later today Intel will officially unveil new quad-core Xeon processors with a power consumption of only 50W.
This represents a 60 percent decrease in power use from early chips that had 120 thermal watt envelopes and a 38 percent drop from 80-watt models.

The Santa Clara, Calif., company will officially unveil these two new "Clovertown" quad-core processors on March 12.

In a call with financial analysts on Feb. 22, Intel officials said the company would offer these low-watt, quad-core models as part of its short-term road map. Later in 2007, the company plans on rolling out a 3.0GHz version of its quad-core chip, as well as processors that include a 1600MHz FSB (front side bus).

Later, the company will also produce quad-core chips that use its 45-nanometer manufacturing process.

Since introducing its quad-core processors in November, Intel has steadily increased the number of new models for x86 servers, workstations and high-end computers. The company now offers a total of 11 quad-core processors.
