Intel® Xeon® Processor 7500 Series: Product Brief
A Quantum Leap in Enterprise Computing: Unprecedented Reliability and Scalability in a Multi-Processor Server
Whether you’ve got data-demanding applications, are deploying a private cloud, or are using virtualization to consolidate your data center or develop a robust data recovery plan, the Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series, built with next-generation Intel® microarchitecture (Nehalem), pushes the limits of scalable performance, giving you up to 3.7x better performance in a virtualized environment than previous generations. Intel Xeon processor 7500 series-based servers combine intelligent, expandable performance that automatically adapts to the diverse needs of your environment with advanced reliability and world-record-breaking scalability.
With enhanced 45nm technology, next-generation Intel microarchitecture (Nehalem) and Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT), the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series-based servers help drive your data-demanding enterprise applications faster. Delivering a quantum leap in enterprise computing performance, the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series features up to eight cores supporting 16 processing threads and 24 MB of cache per processor, and four advanced, high-bandwidth interconnect links that allow multiple processors to be directly connected to each other.
All of that scalable performance will allow you to take server consolidation to the next level. Systems powered by the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series deliver up to 20x the performance of older 4-socket single-core servers, enabling up to 20:1 server consolidation, up to 90 percent lower operating costs, and an estimated return on investment in as little as one year. Now you can get more done with fewer servers, reduced power consumption, and less IT overhead.
With 4x the 4-socket memory capacity and up to 8x the memory bandwidth of the prior generation, the Intel Xeon processor 7500 series is uniquely architected for data-demanding applications, such as business intelligence and ERP, letting you deploy increasingly powerful business tools to track your marketplace and identify previously hidden opportunities.
