New Intel Xeon Chips

Intel released their new ‘Pynron’ chips over the weekend, new Xeon Quad cores that were supposed to be much smaller (45nm) and use a lot less power and I was looking at possibly using them in future servers and virtual servers however Intel is still a waste of juice… the lowest end Xeon Quad Core uses 120W of power … the highest powered AMD Opteron Quad Core uses 55W…. thats a hell of a difference….  I don’t care if the AMD is slower (and not by much), it’s still 4 cores and over time 55W is saving a lot of money in power than using 120W processors

Come on Intel… I’ll stop using AMD when you actually put out a efficient processor 😉
