Intel is expected to announce next week that its Pentium D can now be sold with a new Intel E7230 chipset for entry-level servers. Code-named Mukilteo, the chipset is the follow-on to Intel’s Copper River, which is commonly used in workstations. The chipsets will sell for $ 36 apiece when PC makers buy more than 1,000 of them. Pentium D chips retail for $ 530, $ 316, $ 241 in speeds of 3.2GHz, 3GHz and 2.8GHz respectively. Server manufacturers such as Dell and Hewlett-Packard are expected to sell the new Pentium D servers to run simple network server applications such as a Web server or a small database.
