Sources inside Intel claim that the outfit is set to release its new Xeon server chips next month. The leakage is nothing to do with the fact that AMD announced its new server chip yesterday and is no way seen as any form of PR spoiler, as if Intel would ever do that.
The new chips will be based on the Nehalem microarchitecture, which Intel claims cuts down on bottlenecks. Nehalem chips are also able to execute more tasks while drawing less power. The company will deliver new Xeon server processors belonging to the 5500 and 3500 chip families starting early August.
