2.0 GHz on a 1333 MHz front-side bus

Intel has quietly begun shipping its latest Clovertown Xeon quad-core processor—the Xeon E5335. The latest Xeon E5335 arrives at 2.0 GHz which slots it between the 2.33 GHz E5345 and the 1.86 GHz E5320.

While the Xeon E5320 and lower models operate on 1066 MHz front-side buses, the new E5335 features a 1333 MHz front-side bus. As with the other models in the Xeon lineup the E5335 features 8MB of L2 cache.

The Xeon E5335 wasn’t expected until February of 2007. However, Intel claims “We planned to introduce this product in February of next year, but our customers requested that we pull it in to support IT purchases in January.  Our responsive factories and a healthy 65 nm manufacturing process enabled us to pull this in two months ahead of schedule in response to that customer demand.”

Expect Xeon E5335 processors to arrive soon with a price of $690 per processor in 1000 unit quantities.

Well this has been know back since last summer in dual cpu server/workstation world. I decided to get a Dual 5160 instead because of higher single core speed. My Supermicro X7DA3 motherboard is compatible with these chips. But the next generation 45nm quuad core are coming out next summer. I would not doubt that Intel even has a 8 core by this time next year.

In Lightwave 3d 9.0, my 5160 systems is 8.5 times faster than my P4 3.2Ghz.
