Chipmaker Intel has released its Pentium 350 Processor with a revamped architecture for microservers.
The Pentium 350 supports Hyperthreading and has a thermal design power (TDP) of just 15 watts.
Based on Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture, the 32-nm chip has two cores running at 1.2 GHz clock speed with 3MB of cache.
The Pentium 350 does not have any integrated graphics component.
At present, Intel's current go-to server chip, the Xeon E3, is dominating the market.
The chipmaker's low-power Atom processors have been slated to be used in the next generation low-end servers or microservers.
Radoslaw Walczyk, spokesperson for Intel, said although Xeon range of processors dominates the commodity server market, the low TDP delivered with the Pentium 350 is a unique draw for customers.
