Six-core Xeon X5680 chip will be Intel's flagship server in 2010

We have repeatedly reported on the powerful six-core processor Core i7 980X, also known under the code name Gulftown. Recall, this processor is fabricated on 32 nm technology standards and is designed for a community of computer enthusiasts, and its release should take place in March at the price of 999 dollars.

Interestingly, Intel, apparently, is going to submit the same chip and the server market, of course, with a different name and support the other socket. The server version of Core i7 980X will be called the Xeon X5680 and become a family shestiyadernikov Westmere EP, and its characteristics will be similar to the model Gulftown.

Thus, the server processor Xeon X5680 will clock speed of 3.33 GHz, 12 MB cache and six cores and 12 computing threads. In addition, the technology will be implemented Turbo Boost (which quite unusual for a server solution), and support for DDR3 1333, and a TDP of the chip will be 130 watts.

These specifications give reason to believe that the six-core Xeon X5680 processor will remain the flagship of Intel server line throughout 2010 and possibly longer, given that the new generation 32 nm chips Intel Sandy Bridge, which will appear in the first quarter of 2011, will be presented only two-and quad-core models. Of course, Intel is working and on the next generation 32 nm server processors, but so far nothing about it is not known.
