Intel to Out Due AMD's 6100 Series Opteron with Nehalem EX 7500

Intel released on Wednesday that they will be launching a whole new server platform that will blow AMD's Opteron 6100 Series platform clear out of the water. The nanomater process is much smaller (45nm) and will be more energy efficient than any of their Xeon processors to date. A three times increase in performance is said to take place with the newly named "Nehalem EX" Xeon processors in comparison with the Xeon 7400 Series. The Nehalem EX processors boast a four-chip platform with 64 cores, 128 threads per 8-chip platform, and 24MB of L3 cache. They can also be utilized in 32 cores, and 64 threads per four-chip platform. You can view the screenshots below, containing Intel's claim to fame, and pricing specifications:

Kirk Skaugen, who is vice president of the Intel architecture group and general manager of Intel's data center group, said: "The Xeon 7500 brings mission critical capabilities to the mainstream by delivering the most significant leap in performance, scalability and reliability ever seen from Intel."
