Intel unveils new generation of Intel® Xeon-processor-based server platforms
Intel Corporation Monday unveiled a new generation of Intel® Xeon-processor-based server platforms based on an array of new performance-enhancing technologies and capabilities that collectively better address the evolving needs of enterprise computing.
Intel’s new dual-processor capable platforms, which are based on the Intel® Xeon 3.60 GHz processor introduced in June, utilize the new Intel® E7520 or E7320 chipsets (formerly codenamed “Lindenhurst”) that vary in features and prices. The platforms also include the new Intel® IOP332 I/O Storage Processor (formerly codenamed “Dobson”) that delivers improved RAID storage performance. The platforms also incorporate a host of other new and enhanced memory, I/O and bus technologies that increase performance in key server benchmarks up to 50 percent over prior generations, depending on the application.
“We’ve innovated and integrated the processor, chipset, storage and networking components with these technologies into platforms that deliver a new standard in performance, reliability and cost,” said Ferhad Patel, Strategic Relations Manager, Middle East & North Africa for Intel. “Utilizing these technologies will enable the systems built on these platforms to perform many of the most demanding jobs business, science or government can throw at them.”
