As of today, the Intel Xeon processors 5600 series & the two socket Intel Xeon processor 7500 series extend performance gains with 13 new world records for two socket x86 based server and workstation products.
These results and benchmarks represent a lot of hard work and collaboration between Intel and the industry to bring these great products to market.
With the introduction of these new products we have leadership on a variety of verticals that matter most to end users and IT decision makers i.e. energy efficiency, virtualization and enterprise performance.
Specifically, the IBM* x3650 M3 (single node server system) delivered 2,927 overall ssj_ops/watt, upto a 42% gain over previous generation Intel Xeon processor 5500 series and IBM* dx360 M3 (multi-node server system) delivered 3,038 overall ssj_ops/watt, upto a 31% gain over previous generation Intel Xeon processor 5500 series.
