Intel launches first dual-core server product early

Intel has launched its first dual-core server processor ahead of schedule, and Dell, IBM and Hewlett-Packard have announced a number of servers that will carry it.

To catch up with dual-core market leader AMD, Intel has launched a Xeon dual-core processor originally aimed at high-end servers designed to carry four or more processors.

The “Paxville” processor will now be included in new dual-processor server models sold by Dell, IBM and HP and others.

Intel’s first dual-core server product was originally not planned until the first quarter of 2006.

A second Paxville chip for multi-processor servers will also be available within 60 days, said Intel.

Intel's dual-core Xeon for dual-processor servers runs at 2.8GHz. Dual-core processors have two processing engines on each silicon chip to increase processing power a server can achieve.
