Stirling 278m - Dual Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 Series Rackmount Server

Based on a new Intel microarchitecture and Intel's leading-edge 32nm process technology, the latest Intel Xeon processor E5 product families deliver up to 80% more performance than previous-generation processors. They offer more cores, cache, and memory capacity, and include Intel® Integrated I/O, which increases I/O capacity and reduces latency up to 30%. Intel® Intelligent Power Technology dynamically optimizes energy-efficiency to keep performance high and costs down across the data center. These processors are ideal for demanding technical applications, since Intel® Advanced Vector Instructions (Intel® AVX) boosts performance up to 2x for vector and floating point operations.

The latest Intel® Xeon® processors usher in a new era of intelligent performance that takes energy-efficiency and compute density to new heights, while delivering best-in-class support for virtualization, consolidation, and cloud computing. Servers based on these processors can help you create a standardized, reliable IT infrastructure that
helps you drive down data center space, power, cooling, and management costs, while providing exceptional performance and reliability, even for your most data-demanding applications.

Security, Reliability, and Efficiency

Intel Xeon processor-based systems are built with advanced features that give you the headroom, reliability, and compatibility you need to keep pace with an ever-changing business environment. Advanced reliability and security features work to maintain data integrity, accelerate encrypted transactions, maximize availability, and provide a foundation for trusted infrastructure. Advanced power management technologies optimize energy-efficiency and virtually eliminate the power draw for inactive portions of the chip, while intelligently ramping up performance for peak workloads.
