    Intel’s latest roadmap reveals three new Penryn based Xeon models with a higher front-side bus speed – 1600MHz. The three new processors are available in dual-core and quad-core models. Quad-core Xeon E5472 and E5462 are the first quad-core models to receive the 1600MHz FSB treatment. The Xeon E5472 features a 3.0GHz clock speed while the E5462 is clocked at 2.8GHz. Both CPUs feature 80-watt TDP. Intel plans to release these 1600 MHz front-side bus processors in Q4 2007 with the rest of the Penryn family. Pricing for the quad Xeons starts at $797 for the E5462 and $958 for the E5472, per processor, in 1,000 unit quantities. The third and only dual-core 1600MHz FSB processor is E5272. The Xeon E5272 features a 3.4GHz clock speed and is priced at $1,172. Intel has also pulled in the launch of E5272 to Q4 2007, with the quad-core processors.

    Intel has always had awesome server cpus. Now with this aggressive pricing, they look even better.

    So wait, the E5472 is gonna have a half multi? Are there any other Core 2 architecture chips with half multis?

    I prefer a cheaper, lower FSB with higher multiplier myself, I'm running over a 1666 FSB right now on an E6600 - it's called "overclocking". ;)

    And if DDR2 is supported on the platform, that would be DDR2-833 at 1:1 FSB... strange number.

    Usually servers are quite important, they need to be reliable. Overclocking doesn't work here. Where do you get the 1666MHz number anyway?

    Duh.

    Mia Culpa. 1600 is the right number. I was burning a bible when I read that.

    At least you have the right priorities.
