Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 Family Disclaimers

Intel® Xeon® Processor E5 Family Disclaimers

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.

Claim: Built-in Security

No computer system can provide absolute security under all conditions. Built-in security features available on select Intel® Xeon® processors may require additional software, hardware, and services to fully take advantage of. Results may vary depending upon configuration. Consult your server manufacturer for more details.

Claim: Up to 80% Greater Performance

Performance comparison using geometric mean of SPECint*_rate_base2006, SPECfp*_rate_base2006, STREAM*_MP Triad, and Linpack* benchmark results. Baseline geometric mean score of 166.75 on prior generation 2S Intel® Xeon® Processor X5690 platform based on best published SPECrate* scores to www.spec.org and best Intel internal measurements on STREAM*_MP Triad and Linpack as of 5 December 2011. New geometric mean score of 306.74 based on Intel internal measured estimates using an Intel® Rose City platform with two Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2690, Turbo and EIST Enabled, with Hyper-Threading, 128 GB RAM, Red Hat* Enterprise Linux Server 6.1 beta for x86_6, Intel® Compiler 12.1, THP disabled for SPECfp_rate_base2006 and enabled for SPECint*_rate_base2006

Claim: Get up to 70% more performance per watt

Performance comparison using SPECfp*_rate_base2006 benchmark result at the same TDP. Baseline score of 271 on prior generation 2S Intel® Xeon® processor X5690 based on best publication to www.spec.org using Intel® Compiler 12.1 as of 17 January 2012. For details, please see: http://www.spec.org/cpu2006/results/res2012q1/cpu2006-20111219-19195.html. New score of 466 based on Intel internal measured estimates using an Intel® Canoe Pass platform with two Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2680, Turbo Enabled, EIST Enabled, Hyper-Threading Enabled, 64 GB RAM, Intel® Compiler 12.1, THP disabled, Red Hat* Enterprise Linux Server 6.1.

Claim: Up to 30% I/O Latency Reduction

(Integrated I/O) Intel measurements of average time for an I/O device read to local system memory under idle conditions. Improvement compares Xeon processor E5-2600 product family (230 ns) vs. Xeon processor 5500 series (340 ns). Baseline Configuration: Green City system with two Intel® Xeon processor E5520 (2.26GHz, 4C), 12GB memory @ 1333, C-States Disabled, Turbo Disabled, SMT Disabled, Rubicon* PCIe* 2.0 x8. New Configuration: Meridian system with two Intel® Xeon processor E5-2665 (C0 stepping, 2.4GHz, 8C), 32GB memory @1600 MHz, C-States Enabled, Turbo Enabled. The measurements were taken with a LeCroy* PCIe* protocol analyzer using Intel internal Rubicon (PCIe* 2.0) and Florin (PCIe* 3.0) test cards running under Windows* 2008 R2 w/SP1.
