At the upcoming Hot Chips conference in Palo Alto, Calif., Intel officials will talk about "Westmere EX," which could include up to 10 cores per chip. For its part, AMD will discuss its upcoming "Bulldozer" platform, which will offer up to 16 cores per chip.

Sally Steven, Dell's vice president of Dell's Server Solutions business, boasted that the vendor has been the first to ship servers powered by the high-end chips, saying in a statement June 21 that Dell "is providing leading edge technologies to spur further adoption of x86 server solutions while other vendors protect legacy server investments and expensive software and services contracts."
