Increased business responsiveness starts with server performance. Replacing a server based on a 4+ year old desktop platform with a server based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 product family will bring your business up to 5.9x better performance on real applications, making refresh an easy decision. With up to 81% better energy efficiency and up to 31% better performance than a prior generation Intel® Xeon® processor based server, a server based on the Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 product family is a smart investment.

2 81% better energy efficiency on Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1260L compared to Intel® Xeon® Processor X3480 is based on the best published, submitted, or approved SPECpower*_ssj2008 results as of 5 April 2011. Configuration details and scores for both systems are provided below.
3 31% better performance on Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1280 compared to Intel® Xeon® processor X3480 is based on the best published, submitted, or approved SPECfp*_rate_base2006 results as of 9 May 2011. Configuration details and scores for both systems are provided below.
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® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, virtual machine monitor (VMM) and, for some uses, certain platform software enabled for it. Functionality, performance or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations and may require a BIOS update. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Please check with your application vendor.
Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires a computer system with a processor supporting Intel® HT Technology and an Intel® 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 Intel® HT Technology, see www.intel.com/products/ht/hyperthreading_more.htm.
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology requires a platform with a processor with Intel Turbo Boost Technology capability. Intel Turbo Boost Technology performance varies depending on hardware, software and overall system configuration. Check with your platform manufacturer on whether your system delivers Intel Turbo Boost Technology. For more information, see www.intel.com/technology/turboboost/.
