Intel borrows from notebooks for future server chips
One of the server chips Intel will release next year comes from an unusual place: its notebook group.
Sossaman, the code-name for a Xeon chip for blade servers due in the first half of 2006, derives from the Pentium M family, the company's notebook chip family, said Stephen Thorne, marketing manager of the server platform group at Intel. Sossaman puts out a maximum of 31 watts, fairly low for server chips, which can boast thermal ceilings of 110 watts.
"We get a number of deployments where power is a big concern," he said.
To this end, Intel will also release two low-power versions of the Irwindale Xeon chip in late 2005 that consume a maximum of 90 and 55 watts respectively. The low-power Irwindales adopt some energy-efficiency techniques from the Pentium M but are largely based on the architecture of the existing Xeon line, which derives from the Pentium 4.
The chip--part of a server chip roadmap update from Intel--underscores the growing problem of power consumption, but also the increasing influence of the Pentium M, a chip designed in Intel's Israel facilities with energy efficiency in mind.
