The latest Intel roadmap reveals Xeon 5300 series based on the quad-core Clovertown and has 3 prefixes; X, E and L. X denotes Performance Optimized so called the Clovertown Extreme Edition while E denotes mainstream and L denotes low voltage. The Xeon X5355 will be clocked at 2.66Ghz, with 2 x 4MB L2 and 1333FSB topping 120W TDP to be available in Q4 this year for $ 1172. We also heard that there will be 3GHz version of the Xeon X class next year. There will be 3 models for the “E” mainstream class; E5345 at 2.33Ghz, E5320 at 1.83Ghz and E5310 at 1.6GHz featuring 2 x 4MB L2, 1066FSB (1333FSB for E5345) and 80W TDP. The prices are $ 455, $ 690, and $ 851 respectively. There is a low voltage Clovertown in Q1 next year known as Xeon L5310 as well clocked at 1.6GHz/4MB x 2 L2/1066MHz FSB but at a mere 50W TDP. However, E5310 and L5310 do not support DBS.
