In a bid to improve the performance and response time of multi-threaded server applications Intel has announced the availability of its first dual-core, hyper-threaded Intel Xeon processors for entry-level servers. “The availability of our first dual-core server platforms accelerates the delivery of Intel’s aggressive multi-core server roadmap, giving CIOs and IT managers innovative new technologies and capabilities to help grow and transform their business,” says Samir Al Schamma, Intel general manager in the GCC. The new dual-core Intel Xeon processors are expected to help improve the performance of today’s dual processor, 64-bit servers by up to 50%. Further on the roadmap, early next year Intel plans to deliver a new server platform, codenamed Bensley, consisting of a dual-core Intel Xeon processor, codenamed Dempsey, a chipset, codenamed Blackford, and integrated technologies to help improve manageability, IT productivity, and performance of servers in the data centre. Premium server platforms based on the new dual-core Intel Xeon processor are available today. The forthcoming dual-core Intel Xeon processor 7000 sequence for multi-processor servers, codenamed Paxville, is expected to be available in the next 60 days. Over the next few months, servers and workstations based on both platforms are expected to be available worldwide from system manufacturers including ASUSTek, Dell, Egenera, Fujitsu Siemens, Gateway, HP, HCL Infosystems Ltd, IBM, Kraftway, Lang chao, Lenovo, Maxdata, NEC, Samsung, Supermicro, Unisys and Winpro infotech.
