Intel® Xeon® Processor 5500 Series: An Intelligent Approach to IT Challenges

Cover Image

This whitepaper covers the newest processor series from Intel. The Xeon 5500 processor series may dramatically improve on the efficiency of IT infrastructures and provide unmatched business capabilities for today's data centers.


As data centers reach the upper limits of their power and cooling capacity, efficiency has become the focus of extending the life of existing data centers and designing new ones. As part of these efforts, IT needs to refresh existing infrastructure with servers that deliver more performance and scalability, more efficiently. The Intel Xeon processor 5500 series provides a foundation for IT management to refresh existing or design new data centers to achieve greater performance while using less energy and space, and dramatically reducing operating costs. This groundbreaking intelligent server technology features:

    Intelligent Performance that automatically optimizes performance to fit business and application requirements.Automated Energy Efficiency that scales energy usage to the workload to achieve optimal performance/watt and reduce operating costs.Flexible virtualization that offers best-in-class performance and manageability in virtualized environments to improve IT infrastructure and reduce costs.

New standard business servers, high-performance computing (HPC) systems, and workstations built with this new generation of Intel Microarchitecture, codenamed Nehalem, offer an unprecedented opportunity to dramatically advance the efficiency of IT infrastructure and provide unmatched business capabilities.
