Features and benefits of the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series
Boost performance by up to 15 times over single-core servers with processors that intelligently adapt to your workload.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology
Dynamically and automatically maximizes server application performance by increasing core frequencies, enabling faster speeds for specific threads, and mega-tasking workloads.
Intel® QuickPath Technology
Scalable shared memory architecture with high-speed, point-to-point processor interconnects, plus larger caches and larger memory for two-processor servers.
Large memory capacity
Up to 18 DIMM slots with up to 144 GB of main memory and up to 12 DIMM slots with up to 192 GB of memory support higher performance for your data intensive applications.
8 MB shared L3 cache with enhanced smart cache
Inclusive shared L3 cache increases application performance by reducing traffic to the processor cores.
Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT), with Intel® QuickData Technology
Moves data more efficiently through Intel® Xeon® processor-based workstations and server platforms for fast, scalable, and reliable network performance.
AES new instructions
Delivers robust encryption without needing additional appliances or increased performance overhead, improving CPU performance for encryption.
Automated energy efficiency
Get 45 percent more performanceλ than previous generations without increasing power consumption with servers based on next-generation 32nm process technology.
Integrated power gates
Allow idling cores to be reduced to near-zero power, independent of other cores, reducing server idle power consumption.
Automated low-power states
Automatically put processor, memory, and I/O controller into the lowest available power states that will meet the current workload while minimizing performance impact.
Combine servers from multiple generations into the same virtualized server pool to extend failover, load balancing, and disaster recovery capability.
Intel® Virtualization TechnologyΛ (Intel® VT)
- Enables more operating systems and software to run in today’s virtual environments;
- Developed with virtualization software providers to enable greater functionality and compatibility compared to non-hardware-assisted virtual environments;
- Get the performance and headroom to improve the average virtualization performance over previous generations of two-processor servers.
Intel® Trusted Execution Technology
Provides enhanced virtualization security through hardware-based resistance to malicious software attacks at launch.
