Intel to launch dual-core Xeon in 2005

Posted on Wednesday, July 20 2005 @ 22:46 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
CNET reports Intel's CEO Paul Otellini said yesterday the company will likely introduce its first dual-core Xeon server processors later this year.

Intel previously stated it would launch the dual-core Paxville in the first quarter of 2006, but these plans changed.

Competitor AMD already ships dual-core Opteron processors and Intel currently doesn't have dual-core processors for the server market, except the more expensive dual-core Itanium.
