I took this from the second paragraph:

Speed-wise, Intel claims a 50% performance increase in the 7400 over the 7300 series CPU based on TPC-E database benchmark testing (TPC-E simulates the online transaction workload of a large brokerage firm). More impressive is Intelís claim that even with the improved performance, Dunningtonís energy efficiency actually means it uses 10% lower power than the previous generation. The gains are largely attributed to the presence of a new 16MB level-3 cache, in addition to the extra compute power of two more cores. Xeon 7400 CPUs will launch at 2.66Ghz with either four or six core, and will be priced from $856 to $2729.

Can you also put that in a normal desktop pc? Should allow for some fast gaming.

With the right chipset and socket, yea. Plenty of motherboards available.
