Apple Intel Xserve The Xserve Xeon 2.66 "Quad Core" (Late 2006) technically is a "build-to-order" configuration of the Xserve Xeon 2.0 "Quad Core" (Late 2006), but also is documented as a separate model for reader convenience. Other than processor, these two models are identical.

The Xserve Xeon 2.66 "Quad Core" is powered by two 2.66 GHz Dual Core Intel Xeon 5150 processors with 4 MB of shared level 2 cache per processor and 1.33 GHz 64-bit dual independent frontside buses.

By default, it was configured with 1.0 GB of 667 MHz DDR2 ECC "fully-buffered" (FB-DIMM) memory (but can support up to 32 GB of RAM), an 80 GB (7200 RPM) SATA "drive module", a slot-loading 24x DVD-ROM/CD-RW "Combo" drive, and a "built-in ATI Radeon X1300 PCI Express graphics with 64 MB of GDDR3 SDRAM." Ports include onboard mini-DVI, two USB 2.0 ports, two Firewire "800" ports, and a front-mounted Firewire "400" port.
