Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Intel has officially unveiled its "Nehalem EP" Xeon 5500 processors for two-socket servers.

With their QuickPath Interconnect technology, these quad-core chips will likely offer between three and four times the memory bandwidth of the current Xeon 5400 series processors.

The chips were first outed earlier this month when Apple added the Xeon 5500 to its Mac lineup. But Chipzilla has now opened the floodgates for the rest of the server biz.

We give you all the dope on the new product lines from Dell, IBM, and HP, as well as coverage from Intel's press shindig in Santa Clara.

The company launch site is now live here. And the company is hosting various webcasts to announce the chips here. ®
