SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 8, 2006
Ahead of next week's Supercomputing 2006 show in Tampa, Fla., Intel
Corporation revealed new products and technology building blocks for
system manufacturers, system builders and software developers to more
easily create high-performance supercomputers that run faster and save

New Intel-based server products
introduced this year are delivering breakthroughs in technical
computing. As a point of reference, 10 years ago, a supercomputer with
9000 Intel® Pentium® Pro processors took up 1,500 square feet,

teraflops of peak performance and consumed some 800,000 watts of power.
Today, the same level of performance can be achieved by a server
cluster with 44 Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5300 series, codenamed
'Clovertown' and due to ship shortly, while taking up just 16 square
feet and consuming less than 10,000 watts.**
