Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 v3 Product Family

The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family is designed to meet the modern and future needs of compute, storage, and networking, and features accelerated performance with Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (Intel® AVX2) across a broad set of data center workloads, built-in intelligent power management capabilities that improve energy efficiency and frequency optimization, and advanced measurement and telemetry features that maximize operational efficiency through virtualization and data center orchestration. The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v3 product family—versatile processors at the heart of today’s data center.

Matrix multiplication Based on LINPACK*

LINPACK* is a benchmark that performs a series of linear algebra computations. At the heart of LINPACK is DGEMM, a matrix multiply routine. LINPACK is typically used to measure a system's peak floating point capabilities. High Performance LINPACK (HPL) is a version that works on one to many nodes. Intel®-created variant, MP LINPACK, of the HPL benchmark uses Intel's LAPACK compute routines from the Intel® Math Kernel Library with Data Fitting Library Technology Preview (Intel® MKL with Data Fitting Library Preview). MP LINPACK can be used in all places the HPL benchmark is used.

Product and Performance Information


Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.

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.

Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.


Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See for details.


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel.

Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel® microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel® microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
