Apart from the 12 Mbyte L2 cache and the higher clock speeds, the L5400 series is similar to the current L5300 processors (featuring an 8 Mbyte cache and running at a maximum speed of 2.00 Ghz). The shrink from 65 to 45 nm enables the higher clock speeds while staying within the same power envelope.
|Model||Clock speed||Power dissipation||Introduction price (tray)|
|Intel Xeon L5410 LV Quad-Core processor||333 MHz / 2.33 GHz||50 W TDP||$320|
|Intel Xeon L5420 LV Quad-Core processor||333 MHz / 2.50 GHz||50 W TDP||$380|
Next quarter, Intel will introduce a Dual-Core Xeon LV processor based on this very same chip. These CPUs feature a 6 Mbyte L2 cache and two cores (the other half of the cache and the other two cores are disfunctional/disabled), and will run at 3.0 GHz.
