Maximize Energy Efficiency and Performance Density in Two-Processor, Standard High-Volume Servers and Workstations
Two-processor platforms based on the Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5300 series and the Intel® Core™ microarchitecture help companies maximize data center performance and density, while reducing cooling challenges. Platforms based on Intel’s new quad-core technology make it easier to deliver more business services in existing facilities, or condense applications for more efficient operations at lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Two-processor platforms based on the Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series deliver 8-thread, 32- and 64-bit processing capabilities with 8 MB of L2cache per processor, providing more computing for threaded applications in a variety of deployments. The Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series is ideal for the densest of computing environments where performance and performance per watt are key requirements. Supported by the Intel® 5000 chipset family and Fully Buffered DIMM (FBDIMM) technology, Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series-based platforms are expected to deliver performance with better power efficiency, delivering up to 1.5 times the performance compared to Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5100 series in the same power envelope.
