Built with Intel?? new 32nm microarchitecture, the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series automatically regulates power consumption and intelligently adjusts server performance according to application demand, maximizing both energy cost savings and performance. Featuring Intel Intelligent Power Technology, it reduces energy cost over single core servers by automatically shifting the CPU and memory into the lowest available power state, while Intel Turbo Boost Technology intelligently adjusts performance to application needs.
In addition, built-in hardware-assisted virtualization technology with Intel Virtualization Technology FlexMigration (Intel VT FlexMigration) gives you the power and flexibility to virtualize different generations of Intel Xeon processor-based servers within the same virtualization pool, giving you the ability to migrate workloads to fewer servers at night to save energy.
If you??e looking for an energy-efficient processor that gives you the power and flexibility you need, upgrade to the Intel Xeon processor 5600 series.
INTEL TURBO BOOST TECHNOLOGYIntel Turbo Boost technology automatically allows processor cores to run faster than the base operating frequency if it's operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits, maximizing speed for demanding applications, dynamically accelerating performance to match your workload-more performance when you need it the most.
INTEL HYPER-THREADING TECHNOLOGY (HT TECHNOLOGY)Intel Hyper-Threading Technology delivers thread-level parallelism on each processor resulting in more efficient use of processor resources??igher processing throughput??nd improved performance on the multi-threaded software of today and tomorrow.
INTEL VIRTUALIZATION TECHNOLOGY (VT-X)Increasing manageability, security, and flexibility in IT environments, virtualization technologies like hardware-assisted Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) combined with software-based virtualization solutions provide maximum system utilization by consolidating multiple environments into a single server or PC. By abstracting the software away from the underlying hardware, a world of new usage models opens up that reduce costs, increase management efficiency, strengthen security, while making your computing infrastructure more resilient in the event of a disaster.
INTEL TRUSTED EXECUTION TECHNOLOGYIntel Trusted Execution Technology for safer computing is a versatile set of hardware extensions to Intel processors and chipsets that enhance the digital office platform with security capabilities such as measured launch and protected execution. Intel Trusted Execution Technology provides hardware-based mechanisms that help protect against software-based attacks and protects the confidentiality and integrity of data stored or created on the client PC. It does this by enabling an environment where applications can run within their own space, protected from all other software on the system. These capabilities provide the protection mechanisms, rooted in hardware, that are necessary to provide trust in the application's execution environment. In turn, this can help to protect vital data and processes from being compromised by malicious software running on the platform.
INTEL 64 ARCHITECTUREIntel 64 architecture delivers 64-bit computing on server, workstation, desktop and mobile platforms when combined with supporting software. Intel 64 architecture improves performance by allowing systems to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory.
ENHANCED INTEL SPEEDSTEP TECHNOLOGYEnhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology is an advanced means of enabling very high performance while also meeting the power-conservation needs of mobile systems. Conventional Intel SpeedStep Technology switches both voltage and frequency in tandem between high and low levels in response to processor load.
