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 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.
2004-05-10 Intel Dothan 90 nm successor to Banias, and the Centrino / Pentium M line, which will have a 400 MHz bus (533 in 05-Q1) and 2MB of cache. Will be called 735, 745 and 755 for 1.7 to 2.0 GHz processors costing $294, $423 and $637.
Slower (715 and 725) versions launch in Q3, and faster (760, 770: 533 MHz bus, up to 2.13 GHz) in Q4. Consumes 21W in performance mode. Earlier meant to launch in 03-Q3.
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.
2004-11-08 Intel Fanwood / Madison 9M Upgraded Madison with 9 MB of L3 cache. Said to run at 1.6 GHz, and DP chips will include a bus speed increase to 533 MHz (earlier thought to be 667 or 800 MHz), while MP chips stay at 400 for now. The DP chip is called Fanwood while the MP chip is known as Madison 9M. Uses the E8870 chipset.
An upgraded Deerfield (a low voltage Itanium) will also be launched known as Fanwood LV. The first versions use the 400 MHz bus, while chips using a 667 MHz bus will show up in 2005-Q1.
2004-Q4 Intel E7221 Single processor chipset for workstations based on Prescott and possibly the processor succeeding Prescott. The chipset was formerly known as Copper River and succeeds Canterwood-ES
2005-02-14 Intel Irwindale Prescott based DP processor with 2MB of L2 cache.
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
