Will the xServer be transitioning to intel chips as well? Will it be 64 bit?
it will be xeon (64)
xserve and xserve raid will transition and i think the guys in that sector are also building for a third xserve type ;thing; but i cant imagine what it would be...
(i work for intel see my 30th anniversary mac post)
why not woodcrest?
any chance we will find woodcrest in the desktop (aka mac pro)?
i dont know, it depends on when xserve is released woodcrest is on target for 3rd quarter and the new mac pro but it wont be around any time soon (2-4 months prob) but apple will undoubtably try and use it before any-one else can get their hands on it
Woodcrest is a codename. If Intel follows their past behavior, its official name will be Xeon. However, I wouldn't be surprised if they change, since they dropped the Pentium name for CoreDuo.
ok, Im an Intel Noob. Whats the difference between Itanium and Xeon. Arent they both built for servers and workstations?
They share the same target audience (more or less) - servers and workstations, as you say.
But they have a very different internal architecture. The Xeon uses the same architecture (x86) as all the Pentiums. The Itanium is different (IA64)
I don't think you will ever see an Itanium in a Mac.
