Xeon-branded Conroe coming late September
New Xeon-branded Conroe processors for single-processor servers are scheduled
to hit the market next month, according to a story on EE Times.
Intel will reportedly unveil the chips, known as the Xeon 3000-series,
during its Fall
Developer Conference in San Francisco from September 26-28. This
information comes from system builders who also seem to echo information
relayed by HKEPC last month. HKEPC's
report said the Xeon 3000-series chips will launch with the same
1.86GHz-2.67GHz clock speeds, 2MB-4MB cache sizes, and 1,066MHz front
side bus speed as the current Core 2 Duo series.
The Xeon 3000 processors will apparently slip into motherboards with
Intel's new 3000
and 3010 chipsets, which server motherboard maker Supermicro says
launched yesterday. A Supermicro exec stated that his company has
already developed a line of motherboards with Intel's new chipsets to
complement the upcoming Xeon 3000-series processors.
