Posted by at 11:22 am on March 8, 2012

Intel will expand its push in server platform, chipsets and processors into the second quarter of the year, DigiTimes reports. The chip company recently unveiled the E5-2600 series processors, which some believe will end up in refreshed Mac Pros in the near future, as well as three Xeon E5-1600 processors. It’s set to debut a new server platform called Carlow that combines the USB 3-supporting Panther Point (C216) chipset with Ivy Bridge processors.

In the spring, Intel plans to debut its next-generation Itanium processors, code-named Poulson, that will be used on another server platform called Romley. The Xeon E5-2400 series processors will be combined with C600 chipsets will make up Romley. Altogether, the company plans for nine Poulson processors, including eight-core, six-core and quad-core models, which will be priced between $192 for the quad-core and up to $1,440 for the eight-core units in batches of 1,000.

The Carlow platform is aimed at workstations and will use the Xeon E3-1200v2 (Ivy Bridge) series, with a total of 11 processors available from dual-core up to quad-core, priced between $189 and $884 in 1,000 lots. The company has listed a number of manufacturers as customers but, as would be expected, does not mention Apple among its buyers to protect the company’s plans
