Intel introduces new Xeon with up to 3.5 GHz core frequency
Four new server CPUs were recently introduced by Intel. The Wolfdale and Yorkfield based Xeons benefit from a new stepping of the production.
The E stepping allows Intel to introduce a Low-Voltage-Xeon (L5430) with 2.66 GHZ, four cores and only 50 watt. Additionally there is the new high-end model Xeon X5492: The quad-core reaches 3.4 GHz due to its FSB 1600. But the TDP is increased to 150 watt.
The third new Xeon CPU comes with FSB 1333 and 3.33 GHZ. The X5470 has four cores, too. A new dual-core Xeon with Wolfdale core sets the record for 45 nm processors: The X5270 reaches 3.5 GHz with only 80 watt TDP.
