2002-07-08 Intel Itanium 2 The second generation IA-64 chip, Itanium 2 (formerly known as McKinley) was released in three versions: 1GHz with 3MB of level 3 cache ($4220), 1GHz, 1.5MB ($2240) and 900MHz, 1MB ($1330). All include 256 KB of level 2 cache and 32 KB of L1 cache. McKinley uses the 400 MHz 128 bit bus, and the E8870 chipset. Contains 214 million transistors based on a 6 layer, 0.18 um aluminium process.
2002-11-04 Intel Xeon MP Upgrade of the Xeon shrunk to 0.13 micron with 1 and 2MB of L3 cache. Supports 4- to 8-processor servers. Formerly known as Gallatin.
2003-06-30 Intel Deerfield IA-64 processor for mid-range, DP servers. Released in 3MB and 4MB L3 cache versions.
On September 7th -03 also released in a LV (Low Voltage) Itanium 2 variety. This one runs at 1 GHz and includes 1.5 MB of L3 cache. Consumes 62 W compared to McKinley's 130 W while performing at the McKinley level.
2003-06-30 Intel Madison Copper based 0.13 micron IA-64 follow-up to McKinley for 4- to 8-way servers. Sports 6MB of L3 cache. Said to deliver 30-50% better performace than McKinley. Will include around 410 million transistors on a 374 mm2 chip and consume 130W. The 6MB@1.5GHz version costs $4226, the 4MB@1.4GHz (Deerfield) $2247.
2004-06-28 Intel E7520 / E7320 Xeon chipset supporting the 800 MHz front side bus made to support Nocona. Supports PCI Express, Serial ATA and DDR-II. The E7520 was previously known as E7710 and Lindenhurst while the slightly cheaper E7320 has been known as E7510 and Lindenhurst-VS.
2004-06-28 Intel Nocona Xeon DP variety of Prescott made with the 90 nm process. Uses the Tumwater and Lindenhurst chipsets with a 800 MHz bus. Includes HyperThreading, SSE3 and the 64-bit EM64T (earlier CT, Yamhill, AMD64) Technology.
2005-03-29 Intel E8500 Server chipset made to accompany the 4-processor server (4S) chips Cranford, Potomac and later Paxville and Tulsa. Said to support PCI Express, Serial ATA and DDR-II. Also known as Twin Castle 4S.
2005-03-29 Intel Potomac Prescott based chip for 4- and 8-processor servers. Will have the EM64T bit extensions. Starts at 3.33 GHz and includes 8 MB of L3 cache. Uses the Twin Castle chipset. Part of the Truland platform
