New quad-core Xeon 7300 series scales up to 32 processors

Intel yesterday took its quad-core Core 2 architecture to the high-end multi-CPU server sector with the launch of six new Tigerton Xeon 7300 series processors. The new quad-core Xeon 7300 series features scalability up to 32 processors for a total of 128 CPU cores.

Intel offers the quad-core Xeon 7300 series in three different thermal envelopes and cache sizes. The company offers the processor in 8MB, 6MB and 4MB cache sizes. Intel bins the processors in 50-Watt, 80-Watt and 130-Watt thermal envelopes.

Intel reserves its 130-Watt thermal envelope for the speed topping X7350 with its 2.93 GHz clock speed while regular E7340, E7330, E7320 and E7310 models have 80-Watt TDPs. The company only has one low-power 50-Watt variant for launch – the L7345 with its 1.86 GHz clock speed.

All new quad-core Xeon 7300 models operate on a 1066 MHz front-side bus featuring a new point-to-point bus architecture, allowing each processor to have its own connection directly to the chipset.

Expect server manufacturers to announce servers featuring the quad-core Xeon 7300 series in the coming weeks.
