REFRESHREFRESH brief Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series

New servers deliver more performance, more savings, and faster estimated ROI. Introducing the next generation of intelligent server processors—the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series. Give your business the benefit of industry leading energy efficiency and performance that adapts to your workload with the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series. Now you can boost server 1 perf...ormance by up to 60% over Intel® Xeon® 5500 platforms. Plus, you can achieve similar performance as an Intel® Xeon® processor X5570, but with up to 30% lower power, using servers 2 based on next generation 32nm processing technology. And, you have the advantage of being able to combine servers from multiple generations in the same virtualization pool to extend failover, load balancing, and disaster recovery. New features of the Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series Intelligent Performance Built on the new Intel® 32nm process technology and the Nehalem microarchitecture, these new processors deliver more performance per watt and automatically control power consumption. More cores and more cache With up to 50 percent more cores and 50 percent more cache than the Intel® Xeon® 5500 series processors, these processors offer plenty of room for growth. Enhanced security capabilities Protect your business with faster data encryption enabled by Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions, and benefit from additional protection against software attacks for highly virtualized and cloud deployments with Intel® Trusted Execution Technology. 3,4 Typical 2-Socket Intel® Xeon® Processor Based Servers Purchased IT An alysis in 2005 Intel® Xeon® processor (1 core, Processors 3.8 GHz, 2-MB L3 cache) Performance per Server Total Number of Servers Watts per Server fin ancial An alysis Total Annual Energy Costs (estimated) Operating System Licensing Costs (estimated) Estimated ROI Baseline 315 in 15 rack 382W active/228W idle $154,581 $283,500 Purchased in 2010 Intel® Xeon® processor X5680 (6 cores, 3.33 GHz, 12-MB L3 cache) Up to 15X 21 in 1 rack 383W active/117W idle Benefit Five additional cores per processor provide especially massive improvements in performance for multi- threaded applications Performance increase enables greater capacity or consolidation 95% reduction in server numbers and smaller data center footprint 2 Up to 48% less idle power $7,588 $18,900 Almost $147,000 per year savings ~ $264,600 in annual savings 5 months Refresh for real business benefits. Whether you want to refresh to get more performance from the same number of servers or are looking to increase efficiencies by consolidating, the new Intel Xeon processor 5600 series delivers measurable advantages in both scenarios. From a performance standpoint, replacing a server purchased in 2005 with a new Intel Xeon processor 5600 series based server 3 enables up to 15 times the performance. Alternately, you could replace 15 of your older servers with one new Intel Xeon processor 4 5600 series based server and achieve estimated ROI in five months.
