Dell releases dual-core Xeon machines

Later today Dell will launch its first servers equipped with Intel’s dual-core Xeon processor, which will allow users to boost processing performance in databases, e-mail engines and other business applications.

The dual-core 2.8GHz chip, codenamed “Paxville”, will be included in a range of servers and workstations, with the servers starting from under £1,500.

The machines will start shipping next month and will compete with alternative servers powered by AMD’s Opteron dual-core processors, sold by the likes of IBM, HP and Sun Microsystems.

Intel has some catching up to do in the market as AMD entered the dual-core arena this spring. Intel has a close relationship with Dell and its long market reach as the number one PC seller will help it win sales.
