Intel has started shipping dual-core Xeons that use intels 'woodcrest' architechture. These 5100 chips were announced in may this year and will be 65nm, top frequency of 3.0GHz, 1.3GHz fsb and 4Mb of shared L2 cache between both cores.
The 3 GHz versions have a TDP of 80 watts with all others rated at just 65W. An even lower voltage version will ship at 2.33 GHz and with a TDP of 40 watts. Intel hope that this new line will win them back a part of the x86 market.
