Intel Introduces First 1-GHz Server and Workstation

Intel Corp. today introduced the first 1-gigahertz processor for servers and high-end workstations. OEMs will offer systems featuring the 1-GHz Intel Pentium III Xeon processor beginning this quarter, targeting the high-end workstation and front-end server market segments.

Front-end, or Internet, servers with one or two processors have become the solution of choice for enterprises conducting business on the Internet.

Intel's (www.intel.com) new Pentium III Xeon processors are designed to meet the needs of the server market segment. The 133-MHz system bus, faster clock speeds, and cache configurations integrated on the processor die provide headroom for computation and I/O-intensive workloads.

The 1-GHz version of the Pentium III Xeon family is based on Intel's 0.18-micron process technology, and features a 256 Kb cache. This boosts performance by four to 15 percent over previous versions of the processor by placing a full-speed, level-two cache directly on the processor die and increasing the width of the data pathway to the processor.

The new processor will also be used in high-end workstations to increase the performance of content creation, design suites, and simulation tools for the Web environment.

In addition to the processor, Intel also introduced the Intel SBT2 server board, specifically designed to support systems featuring dual Pentium III Xeon processors.
