It is rumoured that Intel will launch a dual-core Pentium D solution for servers next week. This will be the first dual-core chip for servers and it will use a new chipset, the Intel E7230. The E7230 'Mukilteo' chipset is meant for entry-level servers and supports 64-bit, advanced dynamic computer memory, PCI Express and RAID.

The Intel E7230 chipset will be available for $36 in 1,000 unit quantities. The Pentium D 2.8GHz, 3.0GHz and 3.2GHz are available for respectively $241, $316 and $530.
Intel's traditional server processors are not expected to make a transition to dual core for at least a few more months. Dual-core Itanium server chips are not due to arrive until later this year, and Intel's dual-core Xeon processors are not expected until the first quarter of 2006, company executives have said.
