Intel’s latest roadmap reveals pricing for its upcoming Penryn-based Xeon DP processors. Yesterday, DailyTech unveiled the Xeon DP models set for launch. The costs of entry for Penryn-based Xeon DP processors start at $177 and top out at $1,172.
Intel has two Penryn-based quad-core Xeon DP processors under $300. The quad-core Xeon DP E5405 starts out at $209. The $209 price tag yields a quad-core Xeon DP processor clocked in the 2.0 GHz range, but below 2.33 GHz, with 12MB of L2 cache. Putting forth an extra $47 gets you the quad-core Xeon DP E5410 with its 2.33 GHz clock speed.
