Intel has unveiled faster server processors and a roadmap for its multi-core processors, which it said could boost...

the performance of the PC's memory architecture threefold.

On 17 September, Intel is planning to launch its first six-core Xeon microprocessor. Intel said the processor has been designed to deliver the highest performance in a virtualised environment.

Designed for expandable servers, the Intel Xeon processor X7460 offers six cores and 16Mbytes of L3 cache. An eight-socket IBM System x 3950 M2 server became the first platform to break the one million tpmC barrier on the TPC-C benchmark.

Beyond the six-core processor family, the chip maker unveiled its multi-core roadmap at last week's Intel Developer's Forum in San Francisco.

The next generation of multi-core chips include a technology dubbed QuickPath, which connects processors, chipsets and memory together. Intel said QuickPath would deliver up to three times the memory bandwidth of previous generations of its Core architecture.
