INTEL?? XEON?? PROCESSOR 5500 SERIES
The Intel?? Xeon?? processor 5500 series intelligently adjusts performance and energy consumption according to your server application needs. With Intel?? Turbo Boost Technology built in, these processors automatically speed up when your workload requires extra performance. For advanced multitasking, Intel?? Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel?? HT Technology) allows each processor core to work on two tasks at the same time.
Servers powered by Intel Xeon processor 5500 series offer up to nine times faster performance over single-core servers. Intel?? Intelligent Power Technology automatically places CPUs and memory into an optimal power state for maximum performance, while reducing energy use over single-core servers. And when you need greater IT control, you can manually configure performance and power settings.
For virtualization projects, you can mix different generations of Intel Xeon processors series within the same pool with Intel?? Virtualization Technology FlexMigration. Consolidation projects based on the new Intel Xeon processor 5500 series can achieve a 9:1 server consolidation ratio over single-core servers while reducing operating costs up to ninety percent, resulting in an estimated eight month return on investment (ROI).
