Intel has announced that it has more than 15 multi-core processor
projects underway across the company's high-end server, volume server, workstation,
desktop, mobile and networking platform families.
According to Narendra Bhandari, Asia Pacific Regional Manager, Solutions Engineering
Group, Intel Technology India, multi-core processor capability will enable enhanced
performance, reduce power consumption and allow more efficient simultaneous
processing of multiple tasks.
The multi-core architecture entails silicon design engineers placing two or
more Pentium execution cores or computational engines in a single processor.
The multi-core processor plugs directly in a single processor socket, but the
OS perceives each execution core as a discrete logical processor with all associated
resources. In the first quarter of 2006, Intel intends to deliver two Xeon dual-core
Intel's first dual-core processor-based platform is the Pentium Processor Extreme
Edition 840 running at 3.2 GHz along with the 955X Express Chipset.
