Powering a New Era: Extreme Low Energy Servers Process Tasks at Hyperscale

Nothing in business is more important to me than spending quality time listening to our customers.  To enable the cloud-based experiences that we all enjoy, bleeding-edge cloud data center operators taught us early on that deploying applications at large scale … Read more >

Intel® Xeon® Phi™ coprocessors accelerate the pace of discovery and innovation

Discovery and the supercomputers behind discoveries are fascinating to me. I remember visiting NASA’s central computing facility for the first time and seeing their Cray supercomputer. I was amazed at the sheer number of wires needed to connect the systems, … Read more >

Documentary on Intel Xeon processor ‘Nehalem Effect’ is nonsense

I rarely write about topics with such vigour, but this latest video from a so-called documentary team is absolute and utter rubbish. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Intel Xeon 5500 processor can create the kind of data centre … Read more >

Intel Proves Xeon 5500 Processors Are “Cash Machines for IT”

When Intel launched “Nehalem-EP,” more commonly known as the Intel Xeon 5500 Series processors back in March, we pointed out that their energy-efficient performance and other attributes lead to a very quick return on investment – as soon as eight … Read more >

Mission Critical? Meet Next-Gen Nehalem-EX.

Let’s face it-there’s a large following around Intel® Xeon® processors. After all, they are the world’s most widely deployed server, and for good reasons. IT has grown to rely on Intel Xeon processors for their performance, reliability, virtualization capabilities, and … Read more >

Massive cache for 8-core processor designed for high performance, low power and high yield

Intel recently described a 24MB 24-way set associative 8-ported 3rd level cache for an upcoming 8-core Intel® Xeon® Processor with design emphasis on high density, low power and design reuse. It features a 0.3816 ?m2 bit cell in a 45nm … Read more >

Intel Xeon 5500: The IT Manager’s ATM?

You’ve no doubt heard that Intel’s new Xeon 5500 series processors can deliver a return on investment in as little as 8 months when you replace an older, single-core Xeon server. You may even have heard Pat Gelsinger refer to … Read more >

From Pentium Pro to Nehalem: The Story of Transformation

Today, at our headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley, we launched the most important Intel server product since 1995’s Intel® Pentium® Pro processor. In 1995, fewer than 750Ku servers based on Intel architecture were sold, representing only 10 percent … Read more >

A High-Five For High-K Reinvented Transistors

Today marks a major milestone: the one-year anniversary of shipping the world’s first ever Intel processors manufactured on our 45 nanometer process–based on an entirely new ‘high-k metal gate’ transistor formula. And what a year it has been for this … Read more >

Intel servers smash records with 6 core ‘Dunnington’

Did you watch Pat Gelsinger’s IDF kenote today? He announced that the new 6-core Intel Xeon processor for expandable servers will launch in September, and has already broken multiple world performance records – notably the first x86-based server to burst … Read more >
