Intel to release 3GHz Xeon MP 4MB L3 cache and other Xeon MPs

Posted on Thursday, January 29 2004 @ 17:12:30 CET by

A 3GHz Intel Xeon MP processor with 4MB L3 cache is planned to be launched on the 29th of February at an estimated price $3,700. Also at that date Intel will launch a 2.7GHz Xeon MP with 2MB L3 cache at $2,000, and a 2.2GHz MP at $1,180. Nocona (Prescott equivalent) Xeons are planned in Q2 2004 with 800MHz FSB and 1MB L2 cache. A 3.6GHz Xeon will cost around $850.
Then, Intel will fill in the rest of its server line with Nocona chips almost identical to early February's "Prescott" line up, with 3.4GHz Xeons costing $695, 3.2GHz chips $450, 3GHz Xeon Noconas costing $315 and 2.8GHz Xeons just ove $200.

Long before then, in fact on the 15th of February, Intel will introduce a 2MB 3.2GHz Xeon which is priced at just over $1,000. On the same day we'll see 2.8GHz Xeons at $450, and 2.4GHz Xeons at not much less than $320. These will have 533MHz system buses and use non-Prescott cores.

But it's evident that future gens have been shifted to the second quarter of 2005 – Jayhawk/Lindenhurst has been shived back.

And there's been shoving back of the LV Dothan (Pentium M) processor for blades using the E7501, which is not likely to be introduced until the third quarter of this year at 1.40GHz. There will also be an LV Nocona at 2.80GHz released about the same time.

Potomac – an eigh way successor to the Xeon MP, has also slipped to Q1 of next year, along with the Twin Castle chipset.

On the Itanium front, the Fanwood/400 DP and the low voltage Fanwood/400, won't be released until Q4 this year. A Fanwood 533 won't come until Q1 next year.

Madisons with larger, 9MB caches will be released in Q3 and Q4.
