The long-awaited Dual Core Xeon is finding a home quickly in various markets, including in giant IBM's server lineup and offerings from Gateway as well. IBM will be offering special promotions to boost sales, and while IBM has offered Intel systems in the past they usually try to promote their own CPUs over Intels. Interesting. The market is definitely picking up speed for the Dual Core Xeon, with big players like HP and Dell also offering both servers and workstations as early as this month for the market. After the Dual Core Opteron picked up a lot of slack from the delay in getting Dual Core Xeons to market, the Xeon seems to be faring well. It will be interesting to see how these two processors even out in the coming years.
