Default X-Bit Lab: Intel Releases Low-Power Quad-Core Processors.

A little more expensive, but only 50W of power draw for the Quad Core Xeons.

In an attempt to recapture the server market from Advanced Micro Devices, Intel Corp announced Monday its new quad-core chips that consume just 50W of power while providing performance of four processing engines.

Intel Xeon processors L5320 and the L5310 have four processing cores, 1.86GHz and 1.6GHz clock-speeds respectively, 8MB L2 cache in total and are compatible with LGA771 infrastructure that supports 1066MHz processor system bus. Thermal design power of the new chip is just 50W, which is significantly lower compared to the company’s previous quad-core offerings that had thermal design power of 80W or 120W.
The price of the Xeon processors L5310 (1.60GHz) and L5320 (1.86GHz) is $455 and $519 in 1000-unit quantities, which is more expensive compared to chips at the same clock-speed, but with higher power consumption. For example, Intel Xeon E5320 (1.86GHz) is sold for $455 too, but has 80W TDP instead of 50W of the new microprocessors."
