These Intel Xeon processors, with extended lifecycle support,
utilize Intel’s Hafnium-based 45nm Hi-k silicon process technology
to reduce power consumption, increase switching speed,
and significantly increase transistor density over previous 65nm
technology to 820 million transistors.
These 45nm processors are validated with two different chipsets, providing a choice of flexible, dual-processor-capable platforms
for a wide range of applications. These include storage area networks, network attached storage, routers, IP-PBX, converged/unified
communications platforms, sophisticated content firewalls, unified threat management systems, medical imaging equipment, military
signal and image processing, and telecommunications (wireless and wireline) servers.
