For exceptional energy efficiency
Available in servers built with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family and Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family, and the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 series, Intel® Intelligent Power Technology conserves power while delivering advanced power management capabilities at the rack, group, and data center levels. With the highest system-level performance per watt,1 this powerful technology enables businesses to boost IT performance while saving on energy costs and gaining headroom for growth.
Dynamically scaling power consumption
Using integrated power gates, Intel Intelligent Power Technology reduces idling cores to near-zero power.2 These power gates can be controlled manually or through automated settings that adjust processors and memory to the lowest available power state to meet workload requirements without impacting performance. The technology reduces operating costs and can help meet environmental goals—all while allowing for more systems in a power-constrained data center.
Compared to first-generation Intel® quad-core processors, the Intel Xeon processor E5 family with Intel Intelligent Power Technology offers 70% more performance at the same power level as the previous generation.3
Maximizing efficiency with instrumentation
Just as a pilot reads instruments to monitor the functions of an aircraft, the Intel® Node Manager utilizes instrumentation available on the Intel® Xeon® processor E3 family, Intel Xeon processor E5 family, and Intel Xeon processor E7 family to monitor, report, and cap system power to make the most of every watt consumed. Used with management consoles enabled with Intel® Data Center Manager, Intel Node Manager provides a foundation for rack, data center, and facility-level management while improving data center energy efficiency and resource flexibility.
