Four-socket business processing performance benchmarks

Intel® Xeon® processor

Make business intelligence your competitive advantage. The Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800/2800 v2 product families—unlock the potential of your data. It’s incredible what you can find when you know where to look. 

Business processing with HammerDB*

This is a database performance testing tool that allows you to conduct database workload replay, industry-standard benchmark testing, and scalability testing under various loads, such as scaling a population of users who executes order-entry transactions against a wholesale supplier database. For more information, see http://hammerora.sourceforge.net/about.html.

Reduce your server count by increasing your per server performance with the next generation Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 product family.

>         From Intel Xeon processor X7560, increased HammerDB performance by up to 2.5x.

>         From Intel Xeon processor E7-4870, increased HammerDB performance by up to 1.8x.

Product and Performance Information


1. 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. For more information, go to www.intel.com/performance.

2. Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.

3. Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

4. Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice. Notice revision #20110804
