Intel today launched the dual-core Intel Pentium D processor based platform for entry-level servers with the new Intel E7230 chipset.
Intel's new platform includes many unique and innovate enterprise-class features such as PCI Express I/O, 64-bit addressability, DDR2 memory and software RAID. Today's introduction follows already-introduced dual-core processors for Intel-based desktops and workstations and is the first in what will be an extensive family of Intel-based dual-core server products shipping later this year and in 2006.
The Intel E7230 chipset starts at $36 each based on quantities of 1,000 units.
Earlier this day Dell already launched its new PowerEdge SC430 server which incorporates Intel's new E7230 chipset and dual-core Pentium D processors.
