Intel® Xeon™ Processors Speed Past 3 Ghz

Intel Corporation today introduced its fastest Intel® Xeon™ processors, exceeding 3 GHz, for dual processor servers and workstations. The company also said that more than 9,000 companies around the world are now selling components or systems based on the Intel Xeon processor family.

The Intel Xeon processor at 3.06 GHz features a 512 KB level two cache and a 533 MHz system bus and the Intel Xeon processor at 3 GHz includes a 512 KB level two cache and a 400 MHz system bus.

“Intel continues to raise the bar on system performance and manufacturing execution by delivering the first processors to exceed 3 GHz for dual processor servers and workstations to system vendors worldwide,” said Richard Dracott, director of marketing for Intel’s Enterprise Platforms Group. “In 2003, we will continue to enhance the Intel Xeon processor family with industry leading performance and scalability.”

Systems based on Intel Xeon processors are used as general-purpose servers for Web hosting, data caching, search engines, security and streaming media, and as workstations for digital content creation, mechanical and electrical design, financial analysis, and 3D modelling.

The Intel Xeon processor at 3.06 GHz is drop-in compatible with existing systems designed with the Intel® E7501 or Intel® E7505 chipsets, which have shipped in volume since November 2002, while the Intel Xeon processor at 3 GHz is drop-in compatible with systems designed with the Intel® E7500 or Intel® 860 chipsets.

The Intel Xeon processor at 3.06 GHz and the Intel Xeon processor at 3 GHz are available worldwide. Intel’s suggested list prices are $US722 and $US658 respectively in 1,000-unit quantities.

Intel, the world’s largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at
