Netburst still has life left in it

Intel has officially released its 65nm Tulsa core Xeon 7100 series processors. The dual-core processors are based on Intel’s Netburst architecture and will drop into existing LGA771 motherboards. Intel is catering the Xeon 7100 series to multi-processor servers. The new Xeon 7100 series has new features such as up to 16MB of shared L3 cache and Intel Virtualization Technology. DailyTech previously reported details of Intel’s Tulsa.

Eight Tulsa core Xeon 7100 models are available with varying cache sizes of 16MB, 8MB and 4MB. Xeon 7100 models also have varying front-side bus speeds of 800 MHz and 667 MHz. Two different models with different thermal data power ratings of 95W and 150W are available. The Xeon 7100M models will have 150 watt TDPs while the 7100N models will have 95 watt thermal envelopes.

Intel Xeon 7100 series processors are available from 2.5 GHz to 3.4 GHz. Pricing starts at $856 for the lower Xeon 7110N and tops out at $1,980 for the top of the line Xeon 7140M model. Servers based on Intel Xeon 7100 series processors are expected from the likes of Dell, HP and IBM.

"..even with the shared cache, 16MB will have awful latency. cool though that Intel took another page from AMD with a CPU that drops..blah blah..."

Ah yes, the old 'but it needs an integrated memory controller' argument. Isn't that getting old?
Never mind Tulsa is breaking world records on 4-socket database performance. 32 CPu scalable, drop in, HIGHEST performance per watt for this line of product. Nahh.. gotta have that integrated memory controller says the myspace engineer from Daily Tech. This forum is a treat.
