Default Intel Launches Dunnington-based Xeon Processors

From our front-page news:
I somehow missed the announcement yesterday regarding the launch of Intel's latest high-end server CPUs, so I'll talk a bit about them now. We've been waiting to see a launch for Dunnington for some time, but the time was right, and there are now seven different models to choose from. Dunnington is of course Intel's first 6-core (Sex-Core!) Xeon designed for high-end servers.

Not all of the new Dunnington's are six-core, but rather only three. The highest-end model of them all is the X7460, clocked at 2.66GHz. It features 16MB of Cache and a 130W TDP. It's the only model to launch with a TDP of over 90W. The second-highest model is the E7450, clocked at 2.40GHz with 12MB of Cache. The ultra-low power six-core is the L7455, which features a 2.13GHz clock, 12MB of Cache and a 65W TDP.

All of the new processors are rather expensive, so it's for serious business only. The smallest offering is the Quad-Core L7420, at $1,177. Intel boasts world-records on their new models though, and at this point, they're the only option for extremely high-end models. The new CPUs boast copious amounts of Cache and low power, which will make it not only useful in servers, but some workstations as well.
