Intel Unveils 6-Core Xeon 7400

Intel officially unveiled its six-core ‘Dunnington’ Xeon 7400 processor on Monday.

The Xeon 7400 is also one of the first Intel chips to have a monolithic design. In other words, all six cores will be on one piece of silicon.

This is a legacy-at-launch part, as it is the last upgrade for people using the current Intel FSB technology.

New parts will use the new Intel QuickPath Interconnect and will be solid under the Core i7 moniker.
