Intel Rolls-Out Three New Xeon UP and One Atom Processor

Intel expanded its enterprise-grade Xeon processor lineup with three new models under the Xeon UP series. Built on the 45 nm High-K process, at least two of these new chips boast of high energy efficiency. First up, is the X3380 quad-core chip that has 12 MB of L2 cache, 1333 MHz FSB, and 3.16 GHz of clock speed. Its TDP is rated at 95 W.

The second chip introduced, the L3360 quad-core runs at 2.83 GHz, 1333 MHz FSB, 12 MB of cache, but a reduced TDP rating at 65 W. Lastly, a high-speed yet energy-efficient L3110 dual-core chip runs at 3.00 GHz, comes with 6 MB of cache and a 1333 MHz FSB, with its TDP rated at 45 W. The X3380, L3360 and L3110 are priced at US $530, $369 and $224 respectively, in 1000-unit tray quantities. Intel also introduced the single-core 1.6 GHz Atom Z530 processor that sells for around $70 each, in bulk.Source: XTReview

L3110 - I like that one! Very nice price too! Buy one of those, underclock it bit, and you could run it passive and silent.

Doesn't this make the X3380 the fastest socket 775 quad-core, with the exception of the Extreme Editions?

Yes, i believe you'd be better to get a cheaper E2xxx series and underclock it lowering the voltage, it'd use a little more power but it'd be much faster (and cheaper) plus you could run it in passive
