CHIP-MAKING INTEL reckons it has flogged more than a million quad-core Xeon 5300 chips since their intoduction back in November 2006,

"We have shipped more than one million so far," Danny Cheung, a spokesIntel in Singapore told Singapore resident Sumner Lemon. "The millionth quad-core Xeon chip was shipped earlier this month," he said, apparently.

The quad-core Xeon 5300 (Clovertown) costs a few bob. Still, Intel had to pull something out of the bag as wee rival AMD had been doing pretty well in the server space up until then with the still daftly-named Opteron.

If only the upstart could have delivered its quad-core part as hoped. µ
