    Intel Corp., the world’s leading supplier of x86 processors for servers, on Wednesday quietly released its new chips for dual-processor server machines. The new processors dubbed Xeon 5000-series contain two processing engines and made using 65nm process technology. The new chips, however, will not gain significant popularity on the market, according to earlier reports.

    Without releasing any official statements, Intel added specifications of five new Intel Xeon processors for 2-way servers and workstations to the list of dual-core Xeon chips’ specs. The central processing units, which were earlier code-named Dempsey, support Intel virtualization technology, Intel Hyper-Threading technology, 64-bit capability and non-execute bit support.

    Currently Intel offers Intel Xeon DP processor models 5030, 5050, 5060, 5063 and 5080, which operate at 2.67GHz, 3.00GHz, 3.20GHz, 3.20GHz and 3.73GHz, respectively. The new Xeon processors feature 4MB L2 cache (2MB cache per core), 667MHz (models 5050 and 5030 only) or 1066MHz processor system bus and use LGA771 form-factor. The models 5080 and 5060 have thermal design power of 130W, whereas the rest consume about 95W, according to the manufacturer. Along with the new processors, Intel releases its new server and workstation platforms code-named Bensley and Glidewell.

    The new Bensley platform is based on Intel 5000P (Blackford) and Intel 5000V (Blackford VS) chipsets that support dual-core processors, PC2-4300 FB-DIMM memory, PCI Express bus, Intel’s Hyper-Threading, virtualization, active management and I/O acceleration technologies. The Intel 5000P is positioned to support chips that have 667MHz or 1066MHz processor system bus, whereas the Intel 5000V is positioned to work with processors that feature 667MHz bus.

    The Glidewell platform features the Intel 5000X (Greencreek) chipset that, in addition to the capabilities mentioned above, brings support for PCI Express x16 bus required for graphics cards.
