Intel Acknowleged AMD Leads In Dual-core For Servers

Intel acknowledged the disparity between the server processor road maps of his company and AMD but said Intel should weather the storm based on its revitalized product line and a renewed focus on end users. AMD released its first dual-core server processors last week, but Intel is not expected to follow suit until the first quarter of 2006 with its Dempsey processor. Currently, Intel’s Truland platform uses an improved bus design, which will help close the gap for servers with four processors or more, but even Truland will fall a little short of the levels achieved by the dual-core Opteron in similar servers. Intel also plans to be more involved with end-users in upcoming months.
