Dual core server processor. Paxville is the server version of Smithfield. Uses the Twin Castle / Enabled chipsets. Will be known as the Xeon 7000 series MP.
2006-03-14 Intel Sossaman
Intel dual core low power server processor based on Yonah. TDP 31W LV 15W. Uses the E7520 chipset.
Named "Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor LV 2.0 GHz".
2006-06-19 Intel Woodcrest
DP server version of Conroe. Will have FBD (Fully Buffered DIMM) which is said to allow for "stupidly large amounts of RAM". Said to be planned for future Macs. Will be named 5160, 5150, 5140, 5130, 5120 and 5110.
2006-07-18 Intel Montecito
Dual core IA-64 processor with Switch on Event MultiThreading (SoEMT), (like Niagara) built on a 90 nm process. Expected to improve on Madison 9M's performance by 2.5 times. To include 2 * 1MB of L2 cache, 2 * 12MB of L3 cache and around 1.7 billion transistors.
Consumes "only" 100W. (Foxton was to clock it up to 2.0 GHz when it was running cool enough, but was canceled.)
The 2.0 GHz / 24 MB versions are delayed until Q2 2006.
Will be named 9000 (9015, 9020, 9030, 9040 and 9050). The 9010 is a single core version.
2006-Q3 Intel Tulsa
Dual-core IA-32 server chip in the Xeon class, succeeding Potomac to launch in 2006. Based on two Netburst cores with Hyperthreading.
2006-H2 Intel Montvale
Itanium processor, succeeding Montecito and preceeding Tukwila. Earlier said to be a 65 nm major upgrade, but now rumoured to be a 90 nm chip with just some extra cache.
