Woodcrest June 26th. XServe Too?

http://www.macrumors.com/images/macrumorsthreadlogo.gif

TGDaily reports that Intel has announced a press conference on June 26th, presumably to officially launch its Xeon 5100 processor, aka "Woodcrest." The Xeon 5100 will be available in 6 versions according to the site, ranging from 1.6 to 3.0 GHz using 1066 and 1333 MHz Front Side Busses. All models will sport 4 MB of L2 cache.

An unverified MacRumors source had previously reported that their XServe shipment had been put on hold due to a back order of parts, and according to Apple the parts would not arrive until June 26th. This would seem to indicate that Apple plans on announcing its Intel-based XServe on or around June 26th. Of note, ThinkSecret has previously reported that the XServe was not due for release until July.

Exact specifications of the rumored Intel-based XServes are still unknown.

No mention of the Powermac at the moment then. Could a 1.6ghz Woodcrest be used in an imac? I know its unlikely, but just curious to know if it could

Can these be combined like in the current quad powermac? I heard they couldn't, but didn't get that confirmed

I'd like an Xserve that's taller, same depth as Xserve RAID, and quieter. This would allow it to fit into standard rack cases, and appeal to the video & music crowd as well as this photographer.

We have the current XServe running Oracle 10g at work and has been an excellent server. I look forward to this revision because we plan to purchase more of these. They provide a good cost / performance ratio.

What a lovely birthday gift from Intel. I wonder if it will come to my doorstep in a basket of fruit or something. Maybe with some apples.

I beleive that a Dual 3GHz Woodcrest (so 4 cores and a total of 12GHz of horsepower under the hood) Would be an exceptional high end Powermac replacement. It might be 4500$.... but it also might be worth it...

Think about this...

Woodcrest is the high end version of Conroe (Core 2) offering approx 20% more performance over conroe....

It is showed that Conroe (Core 2) Chips already outpace the G5, even at lower frequencies.... I cant immigane How powerful Quad 3GHz Woodcrest Cores would be... And to pair it up with 4 or 8 GB of FBDIMM.... we will have a monster.

Those FSB's are getting nippy! I hope Intel can keep up with the new pace they've set themselves.

I'm itching for something with dual Woodcrests. My current dual Xeon (old architecture) 3.6GHz workstation suddently feels old It's not nice knowing that something so vastly superior is about to arrive!

The Xserves are starndard 1U in height and do fit standard 1U racks.

I imagine he was referring to its depth, which is too large for some racks (which is not to say it's nonstandard). Hence the requirement that it be larger than 1U, to fit the components that would otherwise be spread out in that very deep 1U. I sympathize; our XServe is by a very large margin the deepest component in our rack. We could have gotten something a lot smaller otherwise.

Nah, he said same depth. He's talking about the height.

Woodcrest can, Conroe cannot. That is why Woodcrest now looks more likely to be used in the Mac Pro.

He said same depth as XServe RAID. XServe RAID is 18" deep; XServe itself is 28" deep. That can make a big difference.

Thank you brianus for the assist
To be even more concise...
I want Xserve: 3U to 4U tall, same depth (18") as the Xserve RAID, and quiet, to fit into [travel] cases manufactured by Thermodyne or SKB.
