Designed for single socket workstations, the Intel® Xeon® processor 3600 series1 includes six Intel® microarchitecture based processing cores and 12 megabytes of level 3 cache, delivering a significant performance boost over the Intel® Xeon® processor 3500 series. Processor performance is intelligently optimized with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology2 and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology,3 providing scalable performance necessary for premium single processor workstation experience, enabling digital content creation, engineering, and financial users to create new ideas faster than ever before.
Users seeking the fastest DDR3 read/write speeds without compromising memory capacity will benefit from support for up to two DDR3 DIMMs per channel at 1333 MHZ for up to six DIMMs per system. This is double the capacity supported by previous generations.
The Intel Xeon processor 3600 series is socket compatible with platforms based on the Intel® X58 Express Chipset (LGA1366), and a desktop thermal solution is included.
1Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. Go to: http://www.intel.com/products/processor%5Fnumber/
2Intel® Turbo Boost Technology requires a PC with a processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology capability. Intel Turbo Boost Technology performance varies depending on hardware, software, and overall system configuration.
3Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires a computer system with a processor supporting HT technology and an HT technology-enabled chipset, BIOS, and operating system. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software you use. For more information including details on which processors support HT technology, see www.intel.com/info/hyperthreading.
