At its Intel Spring Analyst meeting in New York on Thursday, Intel showed off two working servers running upcoming dual-core implementations of Xeon code-named Dempsey and Paxville, respectively. Dempsey is part of a dual-core server platform called Bensley, which features Intel’s Hyperthreading technology along with its new high-speed I/O acceleration channel. The platform will officially launch during 2006. The Paxville dual-core part can be fitted into existing motherboards made for single-core Xeon processors. All that’s required to get the CPU up and running is a BIOS update.
