However, the 32-bit design is one reason the top seller of x86 servers, Hewlett-Packard, decided not to build any machines using the first-generation Xeon LV. IBM concluded otherwise and includes the chip in a blade server that fits into its BladeCenter chassis. And HP is building some special-purpose machines for the telecommunications market using the Xeon LV.
As early as 3Q 2006, a successor will appear with the latent 64-bit enabled again, and perhaps higher clock speeds.
