SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 23, 2006 — Intel today disclosed record breaking1
results on 20 key dual-processor (DP) server and workstation
benchmarks. The first processor due to launch based on the new IntelÂ®
Core™ microarchitecture â€” the Dual-Core IntelÂ® XeonÂ® processor 5100
series, previously codenamed 'Woodcrest' â€” delivers up to 125 percent
performance2 improvement over previous generation dual-core Intel Xeon processors and up to 60 percent performance3 improvement over competing x86-based architectures4, whilst also delivering performance per watt leadership.5
'The performance and system-level power
consumption we're seeing from our platforms built around the new Core
microarchitecture has exceeded even our expectations,' said Kirk Skaugen,
vice president and general manager of Intel's Server Platforms Group.
'At the same time, customers demand more than just energy-efficient
performance. We've developed a superior platform that delivers the
latest server technologies including faster and more reliable memory,
IntelÂ® Virtualization Technology (IntelÂ® VT), IntelÂ® Active Server
Manager and IntelÂ® I/O Acceleration Technology. (IntelÂ® I/OAT)'
