Intel Corp., the world’s largest semiconductor company, announced on Monday the release of four new Xeon “Harpertown” processors. The announcement came just as the Santa Clara, California-based microchip manufacturer prepares to launch the “Dunnington” processor for servers in a few weeks.

Today, Intel Incorporated has launched the Xeon L5430, the X5470 and the X5492-three quad-core Xeon processors-and also the X5270, a dual-core chip processor, which come to complete the company’s „Core” line. The latter has the highest clock frequency of all the „Core” chips, peaking at 3.5 gigahertz, while the other three run on frequencies ranging from 2.66 gigahertz to 3.4 Ghz. These new chips are the first of the family to use halogen-free packaging materials, which renders them environmentally-friendly since halogens are not only difficult to recycle but can also release toxins if incinerated.
