single-core server platforms and a foundation based on
the industry’s leading business computing architecture.
The power is in the platform
The chips in the Dual-Core Intel Xeon Processor 7000 sequence are based on
Intel’s 90 nm wafer fabrication process. They benefit from Intel’s dual-core
technology, which helps increase compute power and throughput by 60%
projected performance increase over previous-generation single-core processors
based on Intel initial preliminary testing.
This means they can handle large peak demands and help increase your return on
investment. And they deliver outstanding performance for 32-bit software and
increased headroom for 64-bit applications — compared to previous-generation,
single-core processors — running both simultaneously. The result? An investment
that helps lower your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), while giving you the
performance and flexibility you need to grow your business.
What is the 7000 Sequence?
Manufacturers in many industries use a product-numbering system to
differentiate products within a product line or brand. This helps customers
compare specific products that offer a variety of different features. The
same is true with processors, especially in today’s world when so many
additional features contribute to performance above and beyond clock speed.
By changing how it identifies components on server platforms, Intel is
making it easier for customers to take into account all the things that
contribute to their overall experience
