Intel rolls 'Tulsa' processors for servers

Seeking to make up lost ground in servers, Intel Corp. has unveiled eight new microprocessors, based on 65-nm process technology.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — Seeking to make up lost ground in servers, Intel Corp. has unveiled eight new microprocessors, based on 65-nm process technology.

Previously codenamed "Tulsa," the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 7100 series for servers offers up to twice the performance over previous Intel Xeon MP processors. The dual-core processor family also includes lower-power, 95 watt options that reduce associated energy costs, according to Intel (Santa Clara, Calif.).

"Today's introduction continues an historic 'summer of servers' for Intel where we have now delivered a record 23 new processors in three market segments in less than 100 days," said Tom Kilroy, vice president and general manager of Intel's Digital Enterprise Group, in a statement.

Built on Intel's 65-nm manufacturing process, the Dual-Core Intel Xeon 7100 series processors boast more than 1.3 billion transistors and 16-MB of shared cache. Systems scaling to 32 processors will be available.

The Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processor 7100 series feature Virtualization Technology, which is said to lower the total cost of ownership by assisting with consolidation of different software applications.
