  • Vendors itching to ship 8-way Intel servers by mid-year

    Held back only by Intel's delay in shipping a key chip set, an eager group of major system vendors here at the CeBIT exhibition showed off forthcoming servers featuring up to eight Intel processors. Intel is currently putting the final touches to the long-awaited Profusion chip set, which has been delayed by several months. The first eight-way servers built around the chip set are now scheduled to hit the market by mid-year, said Pat Gelsinger, Intel's vice president and general manager of the company's desktop products group.
