Be the first to experience the breakthrough performance of quad-core technology.
The Intel® Xeon® processor 5300 series is the industry's first quad-core processor for dual processor (DP) servers and workstations. Built on Intel® Core™ microarchitecture, these processors deliver industry leading performance and virtualization, and offer new levels of energy efficiency to help reduce cooling and density challenges.
The Intel Xeon processor 5300 series is Intel's premier solution for the growing computing and data needs of many business-critical applications, and provides the most headroom (threads and performance) for virtualized server environments of any dual processor standard high volume server platform.
Combined with the Intel® 5000 chipset family and Fully Buffered DIMM (FBDIMM) memory technology, the new Intel Xeon processor 5300 series-based platforms are expected to deliver breakthrough performance with better power efficiency, delivering up to 1.5 times the performance compared to leading Intel® Xeon® processor 5100 series in the same power envelope and up to 2.5 times the performance compared to the best published results of AMD Opteron Model 2220.
