Intel badge engineering at its finest

DailyTech has received a roadmap outlining Intel’s entry-level single processor workstation and server plans. Intel will be pushing two platforms this time around: Wyloway and Kaylo.

Intel’s Wyloway workstation platform is based around the Intel 975X Express chipset. Intel also positions the 975X Express as a premium chipset for its consumer platform. Wyloway will accommodate Intel Core 2 Duo E6000 series, Pentium D 900 series and upcoming Kentsfield quad core processors.

Intel is expected to launch a Conroe-based Xeon 3000 series processor lineup in September. Four Xeon 3000 series models will be released—the Xeon 3070, 3060, 3050 and 3040. Xeon 3000 series will be clocked at 2.66, 2.40, 2.13 and 1.86 GHz respectively. The new Xeons will use the same Socket T (LGA775) as current Core 2 Duo Conroe and Pentium D processors and operate on a 1066 MHz front-side bus. Cache sizes will vary on the Xeon 3000 series with the Xeon 3070 and 3060 having 4MB of shared L2 cache while the Xeon 3050 and 3040 will have 2MB of shared L2 cache. All Xeon 3000 series processors will support Intel’s Virtualization Technology (VT), Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST), Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (EM64T) and Execute Disable Bit technologies. Hyper-Threading will not be supported on Intel Xeon 3000 series processors.

3070 2.66GHz 1066MHz 4MB 65W $530
3060 2.4GHz 1066MHz 4MB 65W $316
3050 2.13GHz 1066MHz 2MB 65W $224
3040
1.86GHz 1066MHz 2MB 65W $188

Pricing for Intel Xeon 3000 series will be $530, $316, $224 and $188 for models 3070, 3060, 3050 and 3040 respectively. Xeon 3000 series processors are expected to launch in September.

Supporting the Intel Xeon 3000 series of processors will be a new platform dubbed Kaylo. Kaylo is based around the upcoming Mukilteo 2 and Mukilteo 2P chipsets. Mukilteo 2 and Mukilteo 2P have been named Intel 3000 and 3010 respectively. Intel is positioning the Kaylo platform for entry-level single processor servers. Current documents show Kaylo will support Pentium D 900 series in addition to Xeon 3000 series processors. There’s no mention of support for the recently released Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme processors though. Not much information is available on the Intel 3000 and 3010 aside from its existence.

Intel 3000 and 3010 chipsets are expected to launch in the August/September time frame. Pricing for Intel 3000 and 3010 chipsets will be $51 and $59 respectively.
