Intel Xserve debuts

Apple today replaced its G5-based Xserve with a new Intel-based model, which the company says is five times faster than the previous generation. The new server system features a smaller processor, less cooling requirements due to power-efficient chips, redundant power supplies, and up to 2TB of storage capacity. Pricing for the new Xserves starts at $3,000 -- roughly $300 less than a comparable Dell server -- with a standard configuration boasting 1GB of memory, an 80GB hard drive, and dual dual-core 2.66GHz CPUs. The Cupertino-based company will also offer one million BTO configurations, with the new Xserves due to ship in October of 2006.
