All the attention is on Intel's new ‘Lynnfield' CPUs today - already comprehensively reviewed on HEXUS.net - but seemingly lost in the hubbub are quite a few other new CPUs too.
Chief among them are Intel's new range of server CPUs: the Xeon 3400 series. Intel is positioning these as entry-level server and workstation parts for SMEs and the education sector. Here's how they shape up:
|Processor||Clock Speed (GHz)||Turbo Speed (GHz)||Cores / Threads||Cache||1K Unit Price||HT||TDP|
|Intel Xeon X3470||2.93||3.6||4/8||8 MB||$589||Yes||95W|
|Intel Xeon X3460||2.80||3.46||4/8||8 MB||$316||Yes||95W|
|Intel Xeon X3450||2.66||3.2||4/8||8 MB||$241||Yes||95W|
|Intel Xeon X3440||2.53||2.93||4/8||8 MB||$215||Yes||95W|
|Intel Xeon X3430||2.40||2.8||4/4||8 MB||$189||No||95W|
|Intel Xeon L3426||1.86||3.2||4/8||8 MB||$284||Yes||45W|
On top of those, we noticed a few new additions to Intel's price list. They include a new Core 2 Quad and its low-power variant, and a couple of new additions to the CULV family - including a dual core model.
Here's a table summarising the other newbies:
|Processor||Clock Speed (GHz)||Cores / Threads||Cache||1K Unit Price||Process||TDP|
|Core 2 Quad Q9505||2.83||4/4||6 MB||$213||45nm||95W|
|Core 2 Quad Q9505S||2.83||4/4||6 MB||$277||45nm||65W|
|ULV Celeron M SU2300||1.20||2/2||1 MB||$134||45nm||10W|
|ULV Celeron M 743||1.30||1/1||1 MB||$107||45nm||10W|
