Update Intel has extended its Xeon dual-processor server chip line to 3.2GHz, up from 3.06GHz, the chip giant said today.

The chip operates across a 533MHz effective bit-rate frontside bus and sports 1MB of L3 cache. Presumably there's 512KB of L2 cache in there too.

Intel is asking $851 for the 32-bit chip, when sold in 1000-unit quantities, rather more than the $794 AMD is asking for its 64-bit, 1MB L2 Opteron 246. The two processors are aimed at the same general-purpose server and digital content creation workstation markets.

The 3.2GHz Xeon is available now. ®
