Intel prepares boxed quad-core "Penryn" based Xeon processors for November 11
Intel has set the launch date for its
based quad-core Xeon processor family. The company intends to launch seven new
based models ranging from 2.0-to-3.16 GHz on November 11, according to a posting on
Intel’s reseller webpage
. Standard “E” bin and performance “X” bin processors launch on November 11.
Intel Xeon processors carrying the “E” designation feature 80-watt TDP ratings while the “X” bin processors have higher 120-watt TDP ratings. Intel does not plan to launch the low-power “L” models until Q1’08, with two models in the pipeline.
Strangely, Intel never issued a formal announcement for the launch of
nor has the November 11 date showed up on roadmaps. Instead, the launch date popped up on a public webpage for resellers.

processors begin at $209 for the entry-level E5405 to $1,172 for the top-end X5460. Although Intel set the launch dates for quad-core Xeon based
processors, the company remains silent on the launch date of the desktop and mobile counterparts.

"Intel lines up nine 45nm CPUs for the desktop"
Intel recently increased the number of 45nm-based CPUs it plans to launch for desktop PCs to nine, according to sources at motherboard makers.
Within the nine CPUs, five will be dual-core processors (Wolfdale) and the remaining four will be quad-core (Yorkfield). All will adopt a 1333MHz FSB. Model numbers for the upcoming products are still undecided, noted the sources.
Four of the five Wolfdale processors will have core frequencies of 3.16GHz, 3.0GHz, 2.83GHz and 2.66GHz, while the frequency of the remaining one is unknown. All five Wolfdale processors will feature 6MB L2 cache, detailed the sources.
Three of the four Yorkfield processors will have core frequencies of 2.83GHz, 2.66GHz and 2.5GHz with the remainder as yet unknown. Three will include 12MB L2 cache while the 2.5GHz version will have 6MB.
Intel will introduce the ability to increase the clock multiplier in steps of 0.5 in the upcoming 45nm range to increase its model choices, pointed out the sources.
With Intel aiming to eventually scale the 45nm range up to a maximum core frequency of 4.0GHz, the sources estimate that at least four more CPUs will appear at a later time with frequencies higher than the initial 3.16GHz.

It seems that the bin splits are pretty wide and getting wider.
