• Intel Unveils Xeon 7100 Series “Tulsa” Processors

  • intel%20chip Intel Unveils  Xeon 7100 Series “Tulsa” ProcessorsIntel has introduced a new dual-core microprocessor for high-end servers that use more than four chips.The chips will offer high performance and power efficiency.“Today’s introduction continues an historic ‘summer of servers’ for Intel where we have now delivered a record 23 new processors in three market segments in less than 100 days,” said Tom Kilroy, vice president and general manager of Intel’s digital enterprise group.Tulsa,the earlier code name of Xeon 7100series microprocessor features two processing engines, 1MB level-two cache per core, unified level-three 16MB cache as well as loads of Intel’s technologies, such as Hyper-Threading, virtualization, Intel cache safe technology and so on. The chips are available in typical thermal envelopes of 150W (those clocked at beyond 3.00GHz) and 95W (those that operate at or below 3.0GHz).It is compatible with already shipping server platforms.“The Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processor 7100 series is the best choice for demanding enterprise workloads based on new world record benchmarks, significantly outperforming the industry in key areas while not compromising on the reliability and investment protection that is so critical,” Mr. Kilroy added to emphasize increased performance of the new dual-core server products.
