On Monday morning, Intel announced a new 3.06-GHz Xeon processor designed for dual-processor servers and workstations. The chip doubles the onboard L3 cache over previous-generation 3.06-GHz Xeon chips, raising it from 512K to 1MB, and Intel is claiming that the extra onboard cache should boost performance by more than 15 percent, though that claim hasn't yet been verified. The new chip also has a 533-MHz system bus.
