Earlier this year we detailed the launch of new 15-core Ivy Bridge-based server processors from Intel, as part of the Xeon E7 refresh cycle. Today, Intel is pushing the Xeon E5 family forward -- except in this case, the new Xeon E5 v3 chips are leaping to higher core counts, the more advanced Haswell-EP architecture, and DDR4. The result? The highest-performing Intel server we've seen to date. Collectively, this is a huge leap forward for the entire Xeon E5 series. The Xeon E5 V2 chips, which were based on Ivy Bridge, topped out at 12 cores per socket. The new Xeon E5 v3 cores, in contrast, are going to push as high as 18 cores per socket -- a 50% improvement... Intel 18-Core Haswell-EP Xeon... Read more...

Intel Ships New Eco-Friendly Inte Xeon Server Processors that Boost Performance SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 8, 2008 – Intel Corporation continues to expand its 45-nanometer (nm) manufacturing chip portfolio with the launch of its first four halogen-free Intel® Xeon® processors, signaling another step in Intel's march toward minimizing the environmental footprint of its products. The chips reach new heights in performance and energy efficiency. Much of the energy efficiency these new processors provide comes from Intel's advanced 45nm manufacturing capability and its reinvented transistors that use a Hafnium-based high-k metal gate formula. In addition, all previously launched versions... Read more...
Back in January at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, Intel was showing off a rig in their booth dubbed the "V8". It was essentially a dual-socket workstation platform outfitted with a pair of quad-core Xeon processors for a total of eight cores - hence the 'V8'. In their demo, Intel ran the CPU benchmark built into 3DMark06 and as was evident in the signage over the rig, proudly boasted that it was capable of a CPU score of 6,089 points.  Today we've actually got the parts in house to assemble a similar rig, but ours is configured with considerably more powerful hardware...          What...

New High-End Intel Server Processors Expand Performance Leadership Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 7100 series Intro Continues 'Summer of Servers' Push SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 29, 2006 - Intel Corporation today unveiled eight new Dual-Core Intel Xeon 7100 series processors designed for multi-processor servers. Previously codenamed "Tulsa," the Dual-Core Intel Xeon processor 7100 series delivers on key requirements to support the demands of enterprise applications: top performance and reliability. The processor family also includes lower-power, 95 watt options that reduce associated energy costs. The Dual-Core Intel Xeon 7100 processor series offers up to twice the performance1 and nearly three... Read more...
