There is lots of high volume news from Intel

Check in on The Tech Report's review of a "Stoakley" dual processor system.  There are some impressive updates, a FSB that can run at 1.6GHz and support up to 128GB of 800MHz FB-DIMMs.  When you see what these Xeon E5472 3.0GHz can do against the newer Opterons, you get the feeling that AMD really has to step up their Performance/Power ratio.

Ryan has been busy at the IDF and has posted even more news, from PCI Express 3.0 to nVIDIA letting Intel use their SLI technology in Skulltrail and a lot more.

"When AMD's "Barcelona" Opterons made their debut last Monday, we couldn't tell you about a sleek, black box nestled

in among the other test systems in Damage Labs. Housed inside of it: an example of Intel's brand-new "Stoakley"

dual-processor platform, complete with a pair of Xeons based on 45nm process technology. These Xeons are the first

members of the Penryn family of 45nm CPUs to reach our test labs, and they offer a tantalizing look at how Intel

will counter AMD's new CPU design with a substantially revised version of its own potent Core microarchitecture.

These new CPUs and the platform that supports them promise marked improvements in performance, thanks to a bevy of

tweaks and updates. In fact, although the new Xeons are more a minor refresh than a major overhaul, the gains

they've attained are formidable. Today, we can show you how these processors perform.

The contest between next-generation CPU architectures has begun in earnest. Read on to see how Intel's 45nm Xeons

match up with AMD's quad-core Opterons."
