Chip giant Intel continued its quad-core rollout last week with the unveiling of two 50-watt processors.

The vendor claimed the server chips represented a 35% to 60% decrease in power from its existing 80- and 120-watt quad-core server products.

The Quad-Core Intel Xeon L5320 and L5310 operate at 1.86GHz and 1.60GHz and feature 8Mbyte of on die cache for faster memory data communication and run on dedicated 1,066MHz front side buses.

“Intel has really responded to the industry’s call to deliver unprecedented breakthroughs for data centre energy efficiency,” said Samir Al-Schamma, Intel general manager for the GCC.

“IT managers can get outstanding quad-core Intel Xeon server performance today and at no premium to dual-core products. We are thrilled to drive further records in lower power consumption and we won’t stop here. Our engineers and architects are passionate about delivering even more power-saving innovations down the road,” Al-Schamma added.
