Intel unmasks Nehalem Xeons
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.
