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.

Like AMD making CPU's that drop into Intel sockets - I actually had one of those AMD 25mhz 286 - and I believe my manufactor didn't even tell me it was from AMD.
I don't believe the 16MB cache has bad latency.. Intel has inteligent caching system - the whol idea of large shared cache is reduce expensive access to main memory which is lot slower than the cache memory. Since a lot of time application are moving though loops - the cpu doesn't even have to touch the memory controller.

Oops - it actually was 25Mhz 386 cpu. But I believe that AMD also had 286.
I also had a 133Mhz 586 chip that was a drop in with Intel 486 system.
