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.

Translation on the chinese version-

According to source form Taiwan manufacturer, Intel recently unveiled its updated pricelist for Q3’s processor products. It’s showed that the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 priced at $851 per 1,000 units shipped will experience a big jump of 70% off, putting Quad Core into commonplace.

In the existing plan of price update for Q2, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 has already experienced a large cut from $851 per 1,000 units shipped to $530 on April 22. As to against its rival AMD’s new processors effectively, Intel has painfully given up the release of Core 2 Quad Q6400 (2.13GHz/4MB L2 x 2/1066MHz FSB) in Q3. Instead, the company decided to make another cut to Core 2 Quad Q6600, where its price would be as low as $266 per 1,000 units shipped. Meaning this new processor would experience a 68.7% accumulative cut of price since its release in March.

In addition, in order to fill in the gap of Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.66GHz?4MB x 2 L2 Cache?1066MHz FSB), Core 2 Quad Q6700 would be released. The Core 2 Quad Q6700 processor will be priced at $530 per 1,000 units shipped.

Another point that should deserve our attention is that Intel would no longer release any Dual-Core Intel Core 2 Extreme edition. Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800 (2.93GHz/4MB L2 x 2/1066MHz FSB) processor released in Q3 will be the last Dual Core of this series. The Core 2 Extreme QX6800 processor will be priced at $999 per 1,000 units shipped, replacing the original segment of Core 2 Extreme QX6700. On the other hand, although Intel’s next-generation Dual Core would has an enhanced FSB to 1333MHz FSB, the next-generation Quad-Core Yorklfield would has 1333MHz only in Extreme edition, while other would still remain in 1066MHz FSB.

Note this-

1) "Intel would no longer release any Dual-Core Intel Core 2 Extreme edition. Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6800 (2.93GHz/4MB L2 x 2/1066MHz FSB) processor released in Q3 will be the last Dual Core of this series."

2) Meaning this new processor( Core 2 Quad Q6600 ) would experience a 68.7% accumulative cut of price since its release in March.
