Intel Offers 7-Year Extended Life Cycle Support for 45nm Intel Xeon Processors
Intel today announced expanded offerings for embedded market segments with new processors with extended, 7-year life cycle support. The processors, based on Intel’s revolutionary high-k, metal gate transistor formula and manufactured on the company’s 45-nanometer (nm) process, include the Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5400 Series and Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5200 Series.
Intel is also offering extended lifecycle support for 7 years for the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 5200 series (E5240, E5220, L5238) and the Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5400 series (E5440 and L5408). This represents an expansion from previous minimum support of 5 years. The 45nm processors with extended lifecycle support are available today, and prices range from $321 to $690. The dual-core Intel Xeon processor L5238 at 35 watts will be available in April.
