Intel launched industry's first quad-core processors

Intel launched quad-core Xeon 7300 series processors specifically designed for multi-processor (MP) servers. These new Quad-Core Xeon 7300 series processors can deliver more than twice the performance and more than three times the performance per watt over the company's previous generation dual-core products.

These 7300 series includes frequencies up to 2.93GHz at 130 watts, several 80 watt processors and a 50 watt version optimized for four socket blades and high-density rack form factors with a frequency of 1.86GHz. The Intel 7300 chipset with Data Traffic Optimizations provides a balanced platform design with several new technologies that enhance data movement between the processors, memory and I/O connections.
