Intel's first quad-core processors still aren't even shipping but that hasn't stopped the company from showing off the next chip up its sleeve, unveiling the quad-core Xeon "Tigerton" on Friday. Set to ship in the second half of 2007 and intended for heavy-duty server use, this one sports the Xeon MP 7000 Series designation -- MP standing for multiprocessor, naturally, meaning that you can use more than one of 'em in your setup for some dual or quad quad-core action. Unfortunately, that appears to be all that Intel's letting loose about the processor for the time being, though the company has reaffirmed that the previously announced "Clovertown" quad-core Xeon server processor will be shipping in November, as will the desktop-bound Core 2 Extreme QX6700.
