Four-socket servers based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-4600 v3 product family provide high-density, energy-efficient compute resources to support larger workloads and high virtual machine densities in your data center or cloud. These servers deliver a major leap in performance versus previous generation systems, along with advanced Intel technologies that can help you monitor, secure, and orchestrate your data center resources more effectively. By extending the proven value of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 v3 family into 4-socket server platforms, they give you more options and greater flexibility for scaling your infrastructure and growing your business.
The Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 v3 product family delivers up to 49% average performance increase than previous generation so you can deliver faster application response times and support heavier workloads on fewer servers. These processors provide up to 50 percent more cores, threads, and cache than the prior generation. They also support DDR4 memory, for up to 1.4x higher memory bandwidth and reduced power consumption.
Additional and dramatic performance gains can be achieved for many enterprise applications using Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2.0 (Intel® AVX2) with Fused Multiply Add (FMA) instructions. Intel AVX2 doubles the number of floating point operations that can be performed per second (flops). It also doubles the maximum width of vector integer instructions to 256 bits, so up to twice the amount of work can be performed in every clock cycle. Optimizing performance and utilization in today’s complex data centers and clouds requires a balanced platform to avoid bottlenecks. Intel offers complete storage and networking solutions that can help you unleash the full capability of each server.
The Intel® Solid-State Drive Data Center Family for PCIe* (Intel® SSD) delivers up to 5x the throughput of SATA SSDs, with enterprise-class reliability, endurance, and data protection.
The Intel® Ethernet Controller XL710 (40 GbE) provides flexible, high-performance network connectivity to keep data flowing more quickly, even in dense, virtualized environments.
Intel® QuickAssist Technology offloads cryptographic and data compression workloads to dedicated accelerators to improve performance, while freeing up CPU cycles for improved scalability.
