Wafer containing Intel’s new Xeon 5500 series processors

Patrick Gelsinger, Intel senior vice president and general manager of the Digital Enterprise Group, holds up a wafer containing Intel’s new Xeon 5500 series processors, Monday, March 30, 2009, at Intel headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif. Designed for servers that power the Internet and enterprises, each processor features four cores and 731 million transistors. Shipping today, the processors range in price from $188 to $1600 in quantities of 1,000. (Photo for Intel by Court Mast, Mast Photography, Inc., San Francisco) (www.mastphotography.com)
