The Tech Report published an in-depth look at the new Intel server and workstation platform and CPUs.

"The star of that lineup, once it arrives, will be the Woodcrest microprocessor based on Intel's new Core microarchitecture, which promises higher performance and lower power consumption than current Netburst-derived Xeons.
I recently attended a reviewer's workshop in Portland, Oregon where I got to spend some quality time with a pair of Woodcrest processors on the Bensley platform, and I came away impressed. More importantly, I came away with some benchmark scores we can compare directly to AMD's Opteron 285. "
Read the full report. Intel got under pressure by AMD's Opteron in the workstation and server market. This new line of CPUs is aimed at hitting back at AMD.
