Intel® Xeon® processor are unleashing a new era of server
performance and flexibility, providing businesses with servers
that can better handle today's complex, simultaneous transactions
and escalating workloads. With two execution units per processor,
they enable greater throughput and scalability, delivering
the performance and headroom you need to grow your business
cost-effectively. Intel is now offering these advanced capabilities
on the world's leading business computing architecture.
With nearly 30 million Intel® processor-based servers shipped
since 1996 and a 20-year track record of delivering enterprise-class
performance, you can count on Intel to deliver superior quality
and reliability. And with millions of 64-bit processors
already shipped, you can depend on Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor-based
servers to handle all of your 32-bit and 64-bit applications.
Rapid Performance Scaling
Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor-based servers are available now,
and Intel currently has over 17 multi-core processor designs underway.
It is expected that 70 to 85 percent of all new desktop, mobile and
server processor shipments will be dual-core by the end of 2006. This
will drive wide availability and volume pricing, so businesses have
increasingly powerful, flexible and cost-effective computing solutions
they can deploy with confidence.
Complete Solution Value
Intel is integrating a variety of new server technologies
in its dual-core processor-based systems to improve performance,
scalability, flexibility and overall business value. Examples
include Intel® Virtualization
Technology, Intel® I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel® I/OAT), Intel® Active
Management Technology (Intel® AMT), and Intel® Power Tools. In conjunction
with 64-bit Intel® processors and Hyper-Threading Technology, these technologies
will be instrumental in optimizing value, reducing costs
and mitigating risk in real-world business and IT environments.
Intel is also working with thousands of hardware and software vendors to deliver
the broadest choice of business solutions optimized for Intel
dual-core and multi-core processor-based servers. Optimized
software is particularly critical, and Intel has over a decade
of experience in optimizing code for multi-threaded throughput,
first for multi-processor servers, then for Hyper-Threading
(HT) Technology and now for dual-core processors. View a demo highlighting
the difference between HT Technology and multi-core processing. Over this
time, Intel has established the tools, resources, expertise and relationships
needed to drive increasing thread-optimization across the full range of
Extensive migration support
helps businesses transition smoothly and cost-effectively to achieve
value faster and more reliably.
