More Detail About New Intel Xeons

Intel has been leaking specs and pricing and demonstrating the upcoming 45nm Quad-Core Xeon processors over the last week. These Penryn-based Xeons are due to release next quarter.

Having a dual-socket, quad-core box (with eight total cores) is a pretty attractive idea, especially for SQL Server 2005, which only charges for each physical socket. Of course, the big CPU I am drooling over is still Tigerton.
