The Dual Core Intel Xeon 5000 series processors empower next-generation platforms with the capabilities to get more done on fewer systems, optimize data center density and improve business continuity. Intel Xeon 5000 series processors redefine what DP (Dual-Processor) servers and workstations should deliver to help business be more efficient, dependable and agile. The Dual-Core Intel Xeon 5000 series, with 64-bit computing and greater power efficiency, is ideal for intense computing environments, business-critical applications and high-end workstations.

Powered by the Intel 5000 chipset family and Fully Buffered DIMM (FBDIMM) technology, new dual-core Intel Xeon 5000 series-based platforms are expected to deliver up to 2 times the performance and up to 70% increase in performance/watt of previous single core Intel Xeon processors. Featuring a 1066MHz FSB, 4MB (2 x 2MB) L2 cache and an operating speed of 3.0GHz, the dual core Intel Xeon 5050 processor delivers impressive performance, reliability and versatility, and helps drive low total cost of ownership.

  • newegg Dual-core Processing with 2x2MB L2 Cache The Intel Xeon 5050 processor features two complete processor cores in one physical package. Significant performance headroom, especially for multi-threaded applications, helps boost system utilization through virtualization and application responsiveness. Its 2 x 2MB L2 cache (total 4MB) means more data can be stored closer to processor execution units for faster data access, resulting in higher system throughput and shorter system latency.
  • newegg Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) Intel Virtualization Tehcnology makes it even easier to increase server utilization in your data center by consolidating more applications, while improving data center reliability and adding robustness to virtualized systems.
  • newegg Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology) Hyper-threading enables multi-threaded software applications to execute two software threads in parallel to improve processor utilization and system responsiveness. Dual-processor platforms utilizing dual-core Intel Xeon processors with HT support realize up to 8 logical processors in a single system.
  • newegg Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) Enhances next-generation IA-32 platforms with 64-bit addressability and related instructions, allowing flexibility for 64-bit and 32-bit applications and operating systems.
  • newegg Demand-Based Switching (DBS) with Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to reduce average system power consumption and potentially improves system acoustics.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory by where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for a Buget

Pros: Its a great chip for me , since I'm just in high school. Its not the fastest workstation chip out on the market,but versus a 1.6hgz dell computer its great. I would reccomened buying the woodcrest if you can, but if you can't, then get this.

Cons: Well, like all chips, they do have their limitations. It is close to 4 times faster than my old dell. I still get some bottlenecks in 3ds max 8, but they are faster than before.

Other Thoughts: Its very fast, I only spent $xxxx for this pc, which i saved for over the summer. It runs battlefield 2 great with my x1300 all in wonder and 1gb of ram.
