Intel offers the quad-core Xeon 7300 series in three different thermal envelopes and cache sizes. The company offers the processor in 8MB, 6MB and 4MB cache sizes. Intel bins the processors in 50-Watt, 80-Watt and 130-Watt thermal envelopes.

Model Core
L2 Cache TDP Price
X7350 2.93 GHz 8MB 130W $2301
E7340 2.40 GHz 8MB 80W $1980
L7345 1.86 GHz 8MB 50W $2301

Intel reserves its 130-Watt thermal envelope for the speed topping X7350 with its 2.93 GHz clock speed while regular E7340, E7330, E7320 and E7310 models have 80-Watt TDPs. The company only has one low-power 50-Watt variant for launch – the L7345 with its 1.86 GHz clock speed.

E7330 2.40 GHz 6MB 80W $1391
E7320 2.13 GHz 4MB 80W $1177
E7310 1.60 GHz 4MB 80W $856

All new quad-core Xeon 7300 models operate on a 1066 MHz front-side bus featuring a new point-to-point bus architecture, allowing each processor to have its own connection directly to the chipset.

Expect server manufacturers to announce servers featuring the quad-core Xeon 7300 series in the coming weeks.
