In a research paper on the Intel website, the cost savings for the new quad-core processors is starting at an average of about six thousand dollars per year, if the chips are used to replace existing Pentium III chipsets. “We anticipate that each 8:1 server consolidation could save about USD 6,024 a year in direct operating costs, based on support, network depreciation, and power and cooling.” Intel says.

Intel said that the Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series completed workloads thirty-four percent faster, on average, than the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5148, and up to sixty-six percent faster than our traditional solution of eight individual servers running one workload each.
