Intel targets data center with new Xeon E5-2600 chips

Agam Shah | March 7, 2012
Intel on Tuesday announced the Xeon E5-2600 processors for 2- and 4-socket servers, which is the company's first major chip upgrade for industry standard x86 servers in close to two years.

Intel also launched an Ethernet controller that brings 10-gigabit Ethernet closer to motherboard, making it easier for companies to deploy the networking technology in servers. Server makers said that support for 10-Gigabit Ethernet at the motherboard level should shuffle network traffic a lot quicker in data centers.

Intel is initially launching 17 Xeon E5-2600 processors priced from US$198 to $2,050 in quantities of 1,000. The company also launched the Intel Xeon E5-1600 processors for workstations, which are priced between $284 to $1,080.
