HILLSBORO, Ore., March 14, 2006 — Intel Corporation is outfitting server, storage and telecommunications equipment makers with a new ingredient for squeezing more performance out of space— and power—constrained environments. It is the first low—voltage IntelÂ® XeonÂ® processor to combine dual—core technology with Intel’s innovative power management capabilities, helping to boost energy—efficient price/performance with up to two to four times the performance—per—watt of previous Intel Xeon processors and platforms.**
The historical need for raw computing performance has evolved into a drive for energy—efficient performance to meet people’s expanding demands — whether for smaller devices, lower cooling bills or better price/performance per watt. Energy—efficient performance enables equipment manufacturers to optimally balance processing capabilities with power and space constraints to help meet those demands. Intel is driving innovations in multi—core computing architectures through a combination of silicon, architecture, platform and software innovations to enable new levels of performance, capabilities and energy efficiency.
