Intel is set to announce Core and Dual-Core WoodCrest on the
19th of June 2006, with the goods being delivered no later than 25th of June
2006. The retail name will stick with the established Intel Xeon name. During
that time there will be Xeons based on the Dempsey Core and the new WoodCrest
Core so consumers should take note that Xeon 50xx refers to one on the Dempsey
core while Xeon 51xx refers to one on the WoodCrest.

The initial WoodCrest processors we will see include Xeon 5110(1.6GHz/4MB
L2/1066MHz FSB), Xeon 5120(1.86GHz/4MB L2/1066MHz FSB), Xeon 5130(2GHz/4MB
L2/1333MHz FSB), Xeon 5140(2.33GHz/4MB L2/1333MHz FSB), Xeon 5150(2.66GHz/4MB
L2/1333MHz FSB) and the top-range Xeon 5160(3GHz/4MB L2/1333MHz FSB), based on
the LGA 771 socket. These processors are relatively low power-consuming, drawing
a maximum of 80w, compared to the 130w maximum consumption of the previous gen
Dempsey.
Xeon 5110, 5120, 5130, 5140, 5150 and 5160 will be retailing for USD$ 209, $ 256,
$ 316, $ 455, $ 690 and $ 851 respectively. Xeon 5148 will retail for around USD$ 519
and Intel will not be putting out any models higher than Xeon 5160 before the
second quarter of 2007. The first Quad Core Xeon CloverTown will debut in
quarter 1 of 2007.

a maximum of 80w, compared to the 130w maximum consumption of the previous gen
Dempsey. They will support Intel EM64T, Intel Execute Disable Bit, Intel
Virtualization Technology while Demand-Based Switching will only be supported on
Xeon 5140 and higher models.

The low voltage Xeon LV Sossaman core  and the new generation of Xeon LV
will both still be based on Socket 771, LV WoodCrest Core will be the Xeon 5148
(2.33GHz/4MB L2 Cache/1333MHz FSB) drawing only 40w of power. They will fully
support Intel EM64T, Intel Execute Disable Bit, Intel Virtualization Technology
and Demand-Based Switching.

Xeon 5110, 5120, 5130, 5140, 5150 and 5160 will be retailing for USD$ 209, $ 256,
