Intel prepping sub-10W Atom and 15W Sandy Bridge server chips

Posted on Wednesday, March 16 2011 @ 21:11:22 CET by

Intel revealed details on its low-power server plans. The chip giant unveiled it will release a 15W chip based on the Sandy Bridge architecture sometime later this year and that a 10W Atom server processor will arrive in 2012. The least power hungry Xeon chips Intel has in production right now consume 45W and 20W.
Warehouse-sized data centers from companies such as Amazon, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and others have been using stripped down server boards in an effort to save power, one of their biggest bottlenecks. A Facebook engineer spoke in support of the Intel approach at an event launching the new chips.

Intel addresses the market with what it calls microservers, multiple single-socket CPU boards that share a chassis. Dell, Tyan, Supermicro and Quanta are among companies using the Intel CPUs and board designs. The segment will make up less than 10 percent of the overall server market for the next 4-5 years, Intel said.
