Intel Fields Six-Core Xeon

Arthur Cole

Intel formally introduced its first six-core Xeon this week, part of the next generation of devices designed to accommodate the unique processing demands of virtual environments.

 

The Xeon L7455 features a six-core, 45 nm design that runs at 2.13 GHz and sports 12 MB of L3 cache. The device draws power at 65 watts, which puts it at just under 11 watts per core.

 

The remainder of the new 7400 series (formerly known as the Dunningtons) ranges from 2.13 GHz to 2.66 GHz speeds, with cache sizes from 8 MB to 16 MB. All are built on the 45 nm processor and all sport a 1066 MHz front side bus. Power ratings range from the 50-watt L7445, aimed at the blade market, to the 130-watt X7460.

 

The entire series also features Intel's VT FlexMigration system, designed to ease the movement of virtual machines from the company's Core chips to the MP server devices due out next year.
