Intel BX80614X5660 Xeon X5660 Six-Core 2.8GHz Server Processor
The new Intel Xeon processor for DP workstations featuring the Intel NetBurst micro-architecture offers outstanding performance for multithreaded applications in a multitasking environment. The Intel Xeon processor is ideal for compute intensive and heavy workload applications that require floating-point performance and the intense use of graphics for design. The Intel Xeon processor features a 400 MHz front side bus, dual channel RDRAM memory and the Intel 860 chipset, which provides the bandwidth and performance throughput to deliver streaming audio/video and online collaboration. For your demanding application needs, Intel Xeon processor-based workstations provide the ideal solution.The Intel Xeon processor at 2 GHz is designed for dual-processing performance workstations.

Intel Xeon processor 5000 sequence

Designed for industry-leading performance and maximum energy efficiency, these versatile 1-way and 2-way 64-bit multi-core servers and workstations are ideally suited to a wide range of infrastructure, cloud, high-density, and high performance computing (HPC) applications.

Intelligent performance

Boost performance by up to 15 times over single-core servers with processors that intelligently adapt to your workload.
Intel Turbo Boost Technology

Dynamically and automatically maximizes server application performance by increasing core frequencies, enabling faster speeds for specific threads, and mega-tasking workloads.
Intel QuickPath Technology

Scalable shared memory architecture with high-speed, point-to-point processor interconnects, plus larger caches and larger memory for two-processor servers.
Large memory capacity

Up to 18 DIMM slots with up to 288 GB of main memory for higher performance for your data intensive applications.
12 MB shared L3 cache with enhanced smart cache

Inclusive shared L3 cache increases application performance by reducing traffic to the processor cores.
Intel I/O Acceleration Technology (Intel I/OAT), with Intel QuickData Technology

Moves data more efficiently through Intel Xeon processor-based workstations and server platforms for fast, scalable, and reliable network performance.
Intel Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions (Intel AES-NI)

Delivers robust encryption without needing additional appliances or increased performance overhead, improving CPU performance for encryption.
Automated energy efficiency

Achieve similar performance as an Intel Xeon processor X5570 but with up to 30% lower power? using servers based on next-generation 32nm process technology.
Integrated power gates

Allow idling cores to be reduced to near-zero power, independent of other cores, reducing server idle power consumption.
Automated low-power states

Automatically put processor, memory, and I/O controller into the lowest available power states that will meet the current workload while minimizing performance impact.
Flexible virtualization

Combine servers from multiple generations into the same virtualized server pool to extend failover, load balancing, and disaster recovery capability.
