The latest and greatest next-generation Intel® quad-core technology providing outstanding performance and breakthrough energy efficiency. Delivering four complete execution cores within a single processor, Intel quad-core technology is the ideal choice when it comes to your high-performance computing needs. Designed from the ground up to provide the ultimate multitasking and multimedia experience, Intel quad-core technology-based PCs, workstations, and servers are the ideal choice for work, home, and play.
Second-generation Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5400 series with 45nm quad-core technology offers you greater energy efficiency and the multitasking performance necessary to maximize your virtualization efforts with proven reliability.
Quad Core Technologies basically used for servers, so now you can run your high performing infrastructure applications on the ultimate solution for cooling and density challenges-all on the world’s most popular server platform.
There are three series of Quad Core Servers that are coming from Intel which are as follows:
- Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5400 series : Offers second generation quad-core using 45nm technology with up to 3.16GHz and large 12MB L2 cache. Boost performance by up to 25 percent in existing platforms using the same technologies, software and socket compatibility. Now with Intel VT Flex Migration, your server virtualisation farm can get the benefits of 5400 series performance with live VM migration to select existing and all future Intel Xeon processors.
- Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series : Offers breakthrough performance, helps control operating costs, and alleviates data center cooling requirements. The 5300 series provides up to 1.5x performance boost over previous generation dual-core. Now you can manage multiple servers as a single pool of resources with the most headroom and performance of any Intel two-processor general-purpose server.
- Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 7300 series : Offers leading scalable performance and best-in-class virtualisation for server consolidation. The 7300 series provides huge leaps over previous generation dual-core: up to 2x scalable performance, 2.5x the virtualisation performance boost and 3x greater performance per watt.
So, this is the latest technology from Intel in the field of Processors which is boosting the speed of the micro processors. This is designed specially for servers, for different big servers where speed really matters. These are available in three different series as described above with different performances and their different uses.
