Dell has unveiled a server using Intel’s new high-end Tulsa Xeon chips.
The new server is a Dell PowerEdge 6850, which was demonstrated at this week’s LinuxWorld Conference and Expo in the US.
Tulsa is a dual-core processor designed to be used in mainly four-processor machines, and is therefore seen as a top-end processing solution.
Intel began shipping Tulsa this quarter, around three months ahead of the original schedule. The Tulsa processor runs at a top speed of 3.4GHz.
Intel is advancing its product cycles for planned chips to make way for the future blanket launch of its Core range of chips.
The Core range offers greater processing speeds, and Intel says the processors are more power efficient when compared to rival chips from the likes of AMD.
