Intel brings dual-core processors to entry-level servers

By Derek Sooman on
Intel is going to do its damnedest to compete with AMD in the dual-core server arena, and as such is releasing the new E7230 chipset. The new chipset allows dual-core Pentium D processors to be integrated in server environments, and supports PCI Express and PCI-X interfaces, 800 and 1066 MHz FSB, 64-bit addressability, DDR2 memory, ECC and software RAID. The chipset works with all LGA775-based processors.

On Monday, Intel announced its first server-based dual-core processor. Granted, it is still a Pentium D, but it is a start. This processor is aimed at entry-level servers and performs with the Intel E7230 chipset. It also includes PCI Express I/O, 64-bit addressability, DDR2 memory, and software RAID.
