Intel launched a new processor today, the Xeon X5365. The Inq writes this quad-core chip is clocked at 3GHz with a 1333MHz FSB and a thermal design power (TDP) of 120W.

Additionally, the firm also launched the low-power Xeon L5335, a 2GHz chip with a 40W TDP.
Intel claims that a Fujitsu Siemens Primergy RX300 S3 server using the 5365 scored 98.9 using the SPECint_rate-base 2006 benchmark.

The chips include Intel's virtualisation tech and the firm said the chips have additional extensions for better interrupt handling using Windows 32-bit OSes.
The X5365 costs $1,172 and the L5335 $380. AMD's first Barcelona processors are expected on September 10th.
