Intel shows off 2GHz Quad-Core server processors

X-Bit labs is reporting that Intel has shown off a quad-core server processor code-named Clovertown. This is the company’s first microprocessor to feature four execution engines, or cores. The chip is designed for dual-socket servers. Running at 2GHz the processor scored 1723 in Cinebench while a single core 2GHz processor scored 362. All I have to say is wow.

The prototype of the code-named Clovertown server processor utilizes two physical dice on a substrate, each of the units sport two processing engines and 4MB of unified cache, thus providing four executing cores and 8MB of cache in total.

So it's two dual-core CPUs in one package & these dual-cores have to communicate with each other via the FSB. Once again, I'll wait for AMD to do it the right way. ;-)
