HP Quad-core Workstations

Intel's first quad-core processors will launch on November 13th, according to an invitation to a Hewlett-Packard press event. Though the invitation didn't reveal specific systems, it notes that the computer builder will be introducing a new line of workstations that are timed to coincide with the projected release of Intel's first quad-core desktop processors. The HP workstations are specifically expected to use the Xeon 5300, a quad-core variant of the dual-core 5100 series used in professional systems such as the Mac Pro. At present, quad-core processors are generally reserved for massively parallel duties such as CAD and scientific simulations, though Intel has also said that it will release mainstream Core 2s with four cores to target high-end gamers. Apple and other workstation system designers have yet to indicate any plans of their own regarding the new Xeons.
