Intel announces energy-efficient quad-core processors that consume 50-watts of power

Intel today released two new energy-efficient quad-core Xeon processors for multi-processor servers. The new Intel Xeon L5320 and L5310 operate at 1.86 GHz and 1.60 GHz respectively. Energy-efficient Xeon models consume 50-watts of power, which translates to 12.5-watts of power per core. Intel’s regular quad-core Xeon 5300-series consume 120-watts of power.

Energy-efficient Intel Xeon L5320 and L5310 processors are nearly identical to their higher-clocked counter parts. The energy-efficient models have 8MB of total L2 cache, 4MB of shared L2 per pair of cores, as with other Xeon 5300-series models. Front-side bus of the Xeon L5320 and L5310 are clocked at 1066 MHz, similar to the normal Xeon E5320 and E5310.

Pricing for the energy-efficient Intel Xeon L5320 and L5310 is $519 and $455 in quantities of 1,000, respectively. Intel Xeon L5320 and L5310 processors are drop-in compatible with Intel’s Bensley server platform.

They should make 12.5 watt single core

They should make 12.5 watt single core cpus, and 25 watt dual cores. Would totally take via and other low power cpus away. I feel bad for amd. Even tho I am an amd fan.

You realize they make single/dual core low voltage CPUs right? Core Solo U1500 at 5.5 watts and L series dual core at 15W and U series at 9 watts.

But they do not make these cpus for the average customer, they are usually soldered on. They should make a socket775 cpu at low wattage.

Soldered on? Where? They are normal mobile socket 478/479. And you can even get desktop boards that supports these mobile CPUs.

ULV/LV Core/Core 2 are packaged in flip chip ball grid arrays. Which means that they are soldered to the motherboard.
