Today is the day all engineers and computing enthusiasts have been waiting for! Intel has officially launched a complete new server platform series based on the next-generation Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series which offers 80 % more performance than previous-generation processors and comes with tons of perks:
- Up to 8 cores / 16 threads
- Supports up to 4 memory channels per socket
- Supports max memory speed of 1600 MHz
- Supports up to 40 lanes/socket over the PCIe Gen 3.0 bus
- Includes the Intel® Advanced Vector Instructions (Intel® AVX), 2x for vector and floating point operations.
To better gage the improvement in performance compared to previous generation processors, here are some benchmarks based on the LS-Dyna simulation package, developed by Livermore Software Technology Corporation, that has already been conducted by AnandTech:
Available immediately, AMAX has released a full lineup of systems based on the Intel® Xeon® E5 processor family. A remote testing program is also available for customers to run their application to test out the performance before integrating over to the new platform!
