Three new Xeons added to the Q4 launch lineup

Intel’s latest roadmap reveals three new Penryn based Xeon models with a higher front-side bus speed – 1600 MHz. The three new 1600 MHz front-side bus processors are available in dual-core and quad-core models. Quad-core Xeon E5472 and E5462 are the first quad-core models to receive the 1600 MHz front-side bus treatment.

The Xeon E5472 features a 3.0 GHz clock speed while the E5462 features a 2.8 GHz clock speed. These models feature 80-watt thermal ratings as designated with the E moniker. Intel plans to release these 1600 MHz front-side bus processors in Q4 2007 with the rest of the Penryn family.

Pricing for the 1600 MHz front-side bus processor starts at $797 for the E5462 and $958 for the E5472, per processor, in 1,000 unit quantities. As far as pricing goes, the Xeon E5472 slots below the 3.16 GHz X5460 while the E5462 slots below the 3.0 GHz, E5450.

Intel has one 1600 MHz dual-core Penryn based Xeon processor ready for launch – the E5272. The Xeon E5272 features a 3.4 GHz clock speed and is priced at $1,172. Intel has also pulled in the launch of all dual-core Xeon processors to Q4 2007, with the quad-core processors. The dual-core Xeon E5260 and E5205 will also launch in Q4, not the Q1 2008 date earlier roadmaps showed.

Intel 1600 MHz front-side bus Xeon processors will drop into the upcoming Seaburg chipset. Seaburg features support for dual PCIe 2.0 x16 slots and up to 128GB of memory.

From who? TI? They serve nothing but BS to anyone who will listen with nothing to back it up. ATI has obviously optimized the drivers for 3DM06 since they are #1 right now and in any real world marks they get crushed and they don't OC near as well as the NV cards are so it is all drivers. The TI story means nothing just as everything from that POS site does. May I "inquire" their backing for the leak from Intel they had a couple years ago about that Nehalem, the Octal-core 16 thread CPU Intel is realeasing next year, was supposed to be clocked at 10+Ghz? We all now know that is BS and give 30 days time from any story they release and it is debunked by someone from the company itself or another reputable site. DONE

You are mixing up the two different Nehalems. The original Nehalem was a version of NetBurst and would run at 10+ GHz. It was supposed to be released in 2005 or 2006. It was canceled when Intel canceled Tejas. The new Nehalem, to be released next year, is an improved version of Core, and will be quad-core. The two Nehalems have nothing to do with each other. They have the same names and are both Intel processors, but they are completely different designs.
