Based on Intel's Core micro-architecture, the processor is designed to extend the price/performance and energy efficiency of the current dual-core family.
The 5300 is socket compatible with dual-core Xeons, which means existing dual-core Xeon designs can run the processor without modification. Intel said the chip should offer four and half times the performance of its single-core processor, and provide at least a 50% performance increase compared to Intel dual-core processors.
Dell has also set out its new product strategy, launching multi-core processors, which includes its first Intel Xeon quad-core processor-based products.Comment on this article: email@example.com
