So here we are, not quite four months since Intel launched its Core 2 Duo processor and we're already moving up yet another level. Intel will today officially announce 'Kentsfield', aka the four-core Core 2 Extreme QX6700. Some may claim it isn't a true quad-core CPU as Intel has fitted two Core 2 Duo CPUs together in a single …
What about Virtualisation?
Hey there -
Something that seems to have been overlooked is how cool these CPUs should be for virtulisation workloads.
Of course, I'm assuming that these CPU's support the Intel Virtualisation technology...
Consider a Xen environment with 3 or 4 DomU's.
mmm... Fast virtualised boxes...
Maybe you should start including some virtulisation benchmarks in your reviews? :)
Xen with hardware virtualisation support is getting closer and closer and once it is available for Solaris as a Dom0, I'll certainly be getting something with 4 cores. :)
At least they have the potential to be very cool. (Tech cool - Not physically).
I'll certainly consider something like this at home when the price cools off a little... (though I'd more likely wait for the 4 core with single shared cache jobbie...)
I remember there was a problem with the power consumption in the original preview, but i didn't see a mention of it in this one, does that mean that they have sorted it out?
