Intel shows off "Penryn's" die at IDF  (Source: DailyTech, Brandon Hill)
November 12 is when "Penryn" will officially hit, in Xeon form

Intel’s Paul Otellini today, during the Intel Developer Forum, confirmed the launch for Penryn-based Xeon processors is set for November 12. Penryn will be Intel’s first 45nm architecture, designed for mobile, desktop, server and workstation use. Intel confirmed Penryn has a 410 million transistor die. Kentsfield has 582 million transistors while Conroe has 291 million transistors.

Intel’s reseller webpage accidentally leaked November 11 as the day resellers could start purchasing quad-core Xeon processors and listed the price. Intel immediately locked out the reseller webpage from the public after learning of the posting. Nevertheless, as with Intel launch tradition, the company typically launches new processors on Mondays, unless there’s a holiday.

The company plans to release an onslaught of Penryn-based dual and quad-core Xeon processors with 1333 MHz and 1600 MHz front-side bus speeds. Launch speeds for Penryn-based quad-core Xeon models range from 2.0 GHz-to-3.16 GHz. Dual-core Penryn-based models start at 1.86 GHz and top out at 3.33 GHz.

Expect Intel to officially announce Penryn-based Xeon processors on November 12.

I have just purchased a dual quad core xeon system with dual 2.66GhZ cpu's and a quadro fx 4600. it is the most powerful thing that I have ever driven.

going to be moving into a new office soon and i think I will get a dual xeon 3ghz system with a quadro fx 5600 gpu for their and keep my existing system at home.

is it me or are these prices starting to get ridiculous? the computing power that I have at home is immense, MORE! MORE! NEED MORE POWER! mwuhahahahaha!
