Intel is expanding its quad-core processor family line-up, today announcing two energy-efficient 50-watt server processors that represent a significant decrease in power from Intel's existing 80 and 120-watt quad-core server products.
The site HKEPC, which always seems to break these sort of stories first has this time scooped pricing details on Intel's FSB speed bumped Conroe's.
Achieving this milestone means Intel is on track to manufacture chips with this technology in 2007 using 300mm wafers, and continues the company?s focus on pushing the limits of Moore?s Law, by introducing a new process generation every two years.
All the Kentsfield reviews available to drool over as the NDA lifted today. Kentsfield is Intel's new quad-core CPU, which is essentially two Conroe's slapped together in one package. While purists will no doubt turn there noses up at this route, true quad-core architecture will not be here until the middle of next year earliest, not to mention purists don't have girlfriends :)
