Intel (INTC) rolls out its anticipated Romley server CPU platform, which it officially calls the Xeon E5-2600. Analysts believe Romley's built-in networking features could drive demand for 10G Ethernet switches, thereby benefiting both switch vendors such as CSCO and JNPR, and chipmakers such as BRCM and MRVL. SemiAccurate is quite impressed with Romley after running some tests.
