Intel revealed in yesterday's earnings call that its 32nm Westmere-based Xeon processors will arrive within three months.
The chip giant has already launched Westmere for the desktop and mobile environments at the start of the year, and it will transition the technology to server-oriented Xeon chips within three months.

To retail as the Xeon 5600-series, the new chips will be available in four- and six-core models for use in dual-processor boards. Intel will also finally release the eight-core 'Beckton' Nehalem-EX chip that's based on older 45nm Nehalem technology.
