Intel Refreshes Intel® Xeon(Tm) Processor

Intel Refreshes Intel® Xeon(Tm) Processor Portfolio Lineup

Intel's Largest-Ever Enterprise Processor Products Launch

Intel Corporation has introduced a dozen Intel Xeon processor family products including new processors, chipsets and platforms for Intel-based servers and workstations. Today's product introduction marks the company's largest enterprise processor products launch to date and comes seven years after the company shipped its first multiprocessor-capable chip in November 1995.

Intel also delivered innovations for workstation computing, including advanced graphics and connectivity capabilities, support for faster memory and Hyper-Threading Technology, which delivers performance gains to workstation applications and multitasking environments.

“Intel has consistently invested and innovated our way through the current economic downturn,” said Richard Dracott, group director for Intel's Enterprise Platforms Group. “As a result, we’re able to deliver an outstanding line of industry-leading enterprise products that will provide greater performance, innovation and outstanding value for IT investments in 2003 and beyond. This introduction of Intel Xeon processor products will contribute to achieving analyst predictions that 2003 will see revenue from Intel-based servers for the first time exceeding RISC-based server revenue.”

Intel has begun shipping four new Intel Xeon processors (built on its industry-leading 0.13 micron process technology) designed for two-way servers and workstations at speeds up to 2.8 GHz with 512 KB integrated cache. The new processors add support for a faster, 533 MHz front side bus - the physical connection between the processor and a chipset. Momentum Behind Intel's Enterprise Efforts Intel-based server shipments have grown to 87 percent of all servers shipped since the first quarter of 1996, the earliest date for which figures are available, according to analysts at IDC. ** Gartner Dataquest estimates that revenue in 2003 from Intel-based servers will increase to about $20 billion and for the first time will exceed RISC-based server revenue. ***

This announcement culminates a busy November for Intel that included new software running on Intel® Itanium® 2 processors and new large-cache Intel® Xeon(tm) processors MP at speeds up to 2 GHz (for four-way and above servers).

Intel is also looking forward to the official introduction of Microsoft* Windows .Net Server 2003 to further bolster the growth of the Intel Itanium and Intel Xeon processor families for multi-processing servers. “Windows .Net Server 2003 will clearly be the fastest server platform we have ever shipped,” said Bill Veghte, vice president, Windows Server Group, Microsoft Corporation. “Microsoft and Intel have optimised Windows .NET Server 2003 to take advantage of the Intel architecture to deliver astounding price performance for our customers.”

The Intel Xeon processors at 2.8 GHz, 2.6 GHz, 2.4 GHz and 2 GHz with a 533 MHz front side bus are available for Intel's suggested list prices of $US455, $US337, $US234 and $US198, 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 http:// http://www.intel.com/pressroom.
