New Intel server processors boost speed and efficiency

Intel Corporation introduced 17 enterprise-class processors recently, led by the Intel `Xeon' processor 5500 series. They are Intel's most revolutionary server processors since addressing the market with the Intel Pentium Pro processor almost 15 years ago.

The new enterprise-class chips can automatically adjust to specified energy usage levels, and speed data center transactions and customer database queries. They also will play a key role in scientific discoveries by researchers who use supercomputers as their foundation for research, all whilst delivering great energy efficiency for reduced electricity costs.

The Intel Xeon processor 5500 series, previously code named "Nehalem-EP," offers several breakthrough technologies that radically improve system speed and versatility.

Technologies such as Intel, Turbo Boost Technology, Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, integrated power gates, and Next-Generation Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) improved through extended page tables, allow the system to adapt to a broad range of workloads.

"The Intel Xeon processor 5500 series is the foundation for the next decade of innovation," said Indika de Zoysa, Country Business Manager, Intel EM Limited, Sri Lanka Liaison office. "These chips showcase ground breaking advances in performance, virtualization and workload management, which will create opportunities to solve the world's most complex challenges and push the limits of science and technology."

Fifteen Billion Connected Devices as use of the Internet expands toward Intel's vision of 15 billion connected devices, the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series will also power an upcoming transformation for the Internet's infrastructure.

The high-tech industry has rallied around a goal to run applications from optimized processors and computing hardware that are available on-demand and scalable to the masses.

Often called cloud computing, this vision could flourish helped by the adaptability, capability and intelligence of the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series.

Greatest Intel Xeon Performance Leap in History1 with over 30 new world records, the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series establishes new standards for two-socket performance while delivering gains of more than double the previous- generation Intel Xeon processor 5400 series.

Dynamic Leaps in Intelligence Whether businesses are running high-capacity transactions or simulations, or researchers are striving to discover new energy resources or distant galaxies, computers based on the adaptable Intel Xeon processor 5500 series will play a big impact.

Equipped with triple the memory bandwidth of previous server processors, Intel Xeon processor 5500 series-based platforms effortlessly manage a variety of workloads and conditions.

A new feature, Intel Turbo Boost Technology, increases system performance based on the user's workload and environment, dynamically boosting the clock speed of one or more of the individual processing cores.

The Intel Xeon processor 5500 series also offers automated energy efficiency enhancements, providing users with greater control of their energy expenditures. This includes a processor idle power level of only 10 watts, enabling a 50 percent reduction in system idle power compared to the previous generation.

New integrated power gates, based on Intel's unique high-k metal gate technology, allow idle cores to power down independently.

The Intel Xeon processor 5500 series also takes intelligent power to a new level with up to 15 automated operating states.

These create significant improvements in chip power management by adjusting system power consumption based on real-time throughput and without sacrificing performance.
