Intel began showing off a half-size S3000PT server motherboard code-named Port Townsend, measures about 6 inches by 13 inches. That size means two of the motherboards can fit inside a single rack-mounted machine just 1.75 inches thick, or 10 can fit vertically in a 7-inch-thick machine. The S3000PT motherboards will go on sale in October with dual-core Xeons, and a quad-core version is expected in January 2007.
