HP offers Intel Dual-core Xeon CPUs for server line
HP announced new additions to its x86 server lineup that are powered by the recently released Dual-Core Intel Xeon 7100 series processors.

The servers will use small form factor Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) disk drives, eliminating the need for customers to make multiple drive transitions while simplifying system management needs. The drives consume half the power of larger models, while improving storage performance and reliability.
The two models being offered are:
- HP ProLiant DL580 G4 – Support for up to 64 GB of front accessible hot-plug memory for demanding applications and virtualization; US$6,649.
- HP ProLiant ML570 G4 – Support for 24 DIMM sockets plus the largest number of drives and PCI slots of any ProLiant server; US$5,799.
