Intel releases dual-core Xeon 7000 chips

Some low-end servers will be getting a lot more powerful in the near future now that Intel has taken the wraps off of its new Xeon 7000 series chips with dual-core processors. These chips will soon be powering some of the bread-and-butter business server lines from by Dell, IBM, and HP. These boxes will pack a lot of power into servers that cost less than $10K, and in some cases less than $5K.
