A ZDNet Blog cites that the 65nm Clovertown will be available later this year and "rather concentrate on price, AMD are instead emphasizing performance." Also from the blog: "Intel is eager to claw back some of the server market share from AMD, and this is where Clovertown comes in. Clovertown is the codename for Intel's latest quad-core Xeon 5300 line. The Xeon 5300 line will represent excellent value for money since Intel plans on pricing them the same as its dual core Xeon 5100 processors. That could make things tough for AMD."
