Intel Corp. has released its Xeon processor for dual processor servers and workstations with double on-die cache of previous generations. The processor helps improve performance by more than 15 percent, and maintain investment protection since it is drop-in compatible with existing systems.

The on-die cache is a fast memory reservoir residing on the same chip as the processor. Data stored in the processor's on-die cache is faster to access than data stored on the HD or other system memory, enabling better performance, higher data throughput, and a larger user capacity.

The Xeon processor at 3.06GHz features a 1MB level three cache with a 533MHz system bus. It is designed for use in general-purpose servers for Web hosting, data caching, search engines, security, streaming media and high performance computing, and in workstations for digital content creation, mechanical and electrical design, financial analysis, and 3D modeling.

Drop-in compatible with existing systems designed with the company?s E7501 or E7505 chipsets, PRO Gigabit Ethernet Network Connections and Intel Server RAID Controllers, the Xeon processor is priced at $690 in 1,000-unit quantities.
