  A first look at Intel's quad-core Xeon processors - The Tech Report - Page 1
In the enterprise world, the cost of a processor is more than the price tag of an individual chip; it also takes into consideration the air conditioning needed to cool it, the electricity consumed by running it, and the real estate cost associated with the rack where it will live.
Quad-core Xeon 5300 series processors share the same 65nm manufacturing process and dual-die design as Intel's Core 2 Extreme QX6700 desktop chip, but there are several key differences.
Xeon processors also have access to a faster 1,333MHz front-side bus than their desktop counterparts, and they're available in more configurations than Intel's desktop quad-core part.

 Xeon Information
The first Xeon processor was released in 1998 as the Pentium II Xeon as the replacement of the Pentium Pro.
The Pentium II Xeon was based on the P6 microarchitecture and used either a 440GX (a dual-processor workstation chipset) or 450NX (quad-processor, or oct with additional logic) chipset, and differed from the desktop Pentium II in that it had a full-speed, off-die L2 cache.
A new server chipset, E7500 (which allowed the use of dual-channel DDR SDRAM) was released to support this processor in servers, and shortly afterwards the bus speed was boosted to 533 MT/s (accompanied by new chipsets; the E7501 for servers and the E7505 for workstations).

 CNN - Intel goes inside the workstation with new Xeon chip - August 21, 1998
Xeon -- Intel's replacement for the Pentium Pro -- is a new version of the PII designed for servers and workstations.
Xeons are essentially turbocharged Pentium IIs with a dedicated bus, located between the main processor and the secondary cache chip(s), that runs at the same speed as the processor.
However, the Xeon system convincingly dusted the conventional workstation when we ran Indy 3D and ViewPerf, two industry-standard workstation benchmark suites.

By branding Xeon as a separate product line, Intel can price these chips without regard to the desktop prices and take a portion of the incremental profit associated with these more expensive machines.
Xeon is an effort by Intel to cash in on [this marketing strategy]," he added.
While Brookwood, Peck, and Kumar did not confirm exact pricing on the Xeon chips, all three said the prices were in line with their projections.

 Intel To Launch Low-End Xeon At Developer Forum - Technology News by InformationWeek
Intel is expected to launch a low-end version of its Xeon processor based on the Core 2 Duo at the fall Intel Developer Forum, which kicks off this week.
Expected to be branded Xeon 3000, system builders said the CPU effectively will replace the Pentium D that some system manufacturers—including top-tier vendors such as Dell and IBM—have been using to power entry-level servers for small businesses.
The chip maker also recently shipped two new processors, Xeon 5100 Woodcrest, which is based on Intel's new Core microarchitecture, and Xeon 5000 Dempsey, a low-cost server CPU based on Intel's older architecture.

 Xeon Definition
The first Xeon was introduced in 1998 when the Pentium II was mainstream.
Intel used the Pentium brand with the Xeons with the Pentium II and III (Xeon Pentium II, Xeon Pentium III), but dropped it with the Pentium 4, calling it the Xeon CPU or Xeon MP (multiprocessing) CPU.
Xeon introduced the System Management Bus (SMBus) interface, which includes a Processor Information ROM (PIROM) that contains data about the processor and an empty EEPROM that can be used by manufacturers or resellers to track their own information such as usage and service information.

 Xeon 3000 Gets Quiet Rollout At Intel Developer Forum - Server Platform, Processor - CRN
With little fanfare, Intel on Wednesday launched its entry-level Xeon 3000 server platform for small and midsize businesses, rounding out the company's aggressive Xeon rollout this year.
Although Gelsinger devoted more time to extolling the successes of the Xeon 9000, Xeon 7100 and Xeon 5100 processors released this summer, other Intel executives took time to tout the benefits of the entry-level Xeon 3000 processor to customers and partners.
The Xeon 3000 is available now and shipped to distribution in recent weeks, he said.

 IBM plans 64-Xeon server for 2005 | Tech News on ZDNet
Xeon processors are 32-bit chips, limiting the amount of memory they can handle easily--in contrast to Intel's 64-bit Itanium processors.
But IBM believes Xeon is up to the task, and the company values the fact that--unlike Itanium--Xeon can gracefully run the vast majority of existing software for Intel chip-based servers.
HP's largest Xeon system is an eight-processor machine; beyond that, it pushes Itanium systems with as many as 64 processors.

 Xeon - Gizmodo
When Intel released its Xeon 5100 processors last summer, they were already faster, cooler and more efficient than their predecessors, and now Intel's doing it again with even more-efficient quad core processors that rolled out yesterday.
The company's 5300 series server chips were already 50% more efficient than those 5100 dual-core Xeons from last summer, and now Intel says its Xeon L5320 and L5310 use between 35 and 60% less electricity than its existing 5300 series quad core processors, which suck up 80 and 120 watts.
The L5320 and L5310 Xeons, running at 1.86GHz and 1.6GHz respectively, probably won't be the ones showing up on those Apple machines that are said to be debuting on April 15 in Las Vegas at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention.

 Dual Xeon Duo: What Good Is the L3 Cache? | Tom's Hardware   (Site not responding. Last check: )
As opposed to the 64 bit rocket, the Itanium 2, the Xeon is sold in comparatively high quantities and used in servers along with workstations.
The current Xeon, codenamed "Prestonia," is similar in structure to the Northwood core of the P4 and has additional registers for multiprocessor capabilities.
This means the bandwidth between the processor and the chipset in the Xeon is significantly limited, compared to the P4 (4.2 GB/s vs. 6.4 GB/s).

 Enterprise Mac | InfoWorld | Xserve Xeon review Part 1: Introduction | October 25, 2006 05:51 AM | By Tom Yager
At the other extreme, Xserve Xeon will boot to a UNIX text console or to the server's serial port, it can be administered and configured entirely from the command line and nearly all of the non-user-facing pieces of OS X Server are available as Apple-supported open source.
Xserve Xeon is not flawless--there are design challenges presented by compact rack servers than even Apple hasn't overcome--and the above is nothing near representative of the case that Xserve Xeon makes in its favor.
Xserve Xeon is not Xserve as you've known it, and if you're well familiar with x86 1U (one rack unit = 1.75 inches tall by 19 inches wide) servers, you'll find that Xserve Xeon is unlike any x86 server you've seen or used.

 Apple (UK and Ireland) - Mac Pro - Intel Xeon
Yet, because Intel designed this dual-core Xeon to be more efficient, it consumes less power than similar workstation-level processors, so your system fans don’t have to work as hard to keep them cool.
Ideal for scientific applications, the 64-bit Intel Xeon processors can express the extreme precision needed for floating-point mathematics and to express integers up to 18 billion billion.
Capable of delivering 128-bit vector computations in a single cycle, the SSE3 vector engine accelerates data manipulation by simultaneously applying a single instruction to multiple data — ideal for transforming large sets of data, such as applying a filter to an image or rendering a video effect.
