Intel launches long-awaited 8-core Xeon processor E5-2600 product family

The processor provides an 80 percent improvement in performance compared to the previous Xeon 5600 series

Article comments

Intel estimates that there will be 15 billion connected devices and 3 billion connected users by 2015, while the amount of global data centre IP traffic is forecast to grow by 33 percent annually, surpassing 4.8 zetabytes per year – more than three times the amount in 2011.

Intel's long-awaited Xeon E5-2600 processor is aimed at meeting the growing demands of cloud computing, consumerisation and big data by focusing on four key areas – performance, energy efficiency, I/O bandwidth and security.


Latency can be reduced by 30% using Intel's new PCI Express ports

Financial services platforms will benefit from Intel's new integrated PCI Express ports and Data Direct I/O technology, which can reduce latency by up to 30 percent. The new SFN6122F from Solarflare delivers over a microsecond lower latency compared to prior generations. A complete server solution for the financial sector using the Solarflare adapter card is offered by Hammer.
