SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 14, 2006 — Intel Corporation today kicked off the computer industry's multi-core PC era by delivering four computing 'brains' inside a single microprocessor with the introduction of the Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® 5300 and Intel Core™ 2 Extreme quad-core processor families. These products deliver immense speed and responsiveness for general purpose servers and workstations and for digital media creation, high-end gaming and other market segments that crave absolute performance.

Intel began the transition to multi-core technology 4 years ago with Intel® Hyper-threading technology, followed by the introduction of the industry's first dual-core PC processors in April last year. Intel recently refreshed its entire product line by introducing over 40 new processors, including those based on the revolutionary Intel® Core™ microarchitecture, a more powerful yet energy-efficient design.
