engadget - Intel released its quad-core Tigerton Xeons today, destined for heavy duty server use (think Muli-Processor systems). The new chips come in at prices ranging from $856 to $2,301 per chip, in 1,000-unit quantities. The top-end of this lineup is the X7350, which features a clockspeed of 2.93GHz and 8MB of shared cache, plus a TDP of 130W. As we look down the lineup we also see the E7340, E7320 and E7310 clocked at 2.4GHz, 2.13GHz and 1.6GHz respectively. Each of these feature a TDP of 80W. There are also a couple of dual-core Tigerton chips, with the E7220 clocked at 2.93GHz and the E7210 at 2.4GHz, which have the same 80W TDP and 8MB shared cache of the quad-core variants.

You may be wondering what makes Tigerton different to other Xeon processors based on the Clovertown core. Well, while Clovertown Xeons are limited to dual-processor configurations, Tigerton 7300 series chips allow scaling up to 32 processors (which would be total of 128 CPU cores).
