Next-Generation Server Technologies
The Intel Xeon processor 5500, 5600, and 7500 series provide a quantum leap forward in scalable performance and energy efficiency, and is optimized for the data center with Emulex LightPulse and OneConnect Adapters.
This next-generation combination takes full advantage of new features that include:
- PCI Express 2.0
- Intel VT-d
- Intel Hyper-Threading Technology
As supporting evidence, benchmark tests using the Emulex LPe12000 8Gb/s Fibre Channel HBA showed 3.3 times better performance and 3.4 times maximum I/O
