Posted on Wednesday, Jan 11 2006 @ 00:52 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Intel has shown its server processor plans to its OEM partners and The Inq got some details about it.

In the third quarter of this year we can expect the Woodcrest which will feature a 1333MHz FSB, although there are some indications Intel may pull this launch into the second quarter.

In Q4 the company will release a low voltage version of Woodcrest, along wih the 5000P chipset.
According to recent roadmaps seen by the INQ, other flags Intel has alerted its customers too include a change in the launch of Bensley/Glidewell to the second quarter. It will also introduce a 3.73GHz Dempsey chip in the second quarter, while during this quarter it will introduce a Presler 960 SKU to its uniprocessor line up. Intel now says it will introduce the Itanium Madison 533MHz processors during this quarter. The Dempsey will cost $830 at launch, and that will mean a price cascade of sorts when it’s launched.
The Madison 533s will have 9MB and 6MB of L3 cache respectively, will clock at 1.6GHz, and will cost $4,200 and $1,980 respectively.
The Montecito 9000 family is slated for mid-Q2 2006 and the Tulsa which features 16MB L3 cache and a 667/800MHz FSB will arrive in Q4 2006.

Additionally, we can also expect the Whitmore Lake iMCH chipset, a ULV version of its dual core Xeon, and a dual core LV version of Mr Yonah in Q2 2006.
