World Record Benchmark Performance

Bring your business’s best ideas to life by transforming big data and real-time analytics into new business opportunities while ensuring the reliability and uptime of the most business-critical services with the Intel Xeon processor E7-8800/4800 v3 product families.

Turn Real-Time Analytics Into Real Business Advantage.

Leadership Performance

Accelerate performance across the data center to deliver real insights with real value in real time for the largest workloads running on fast, high-performing infrastructure. Faster transaction speeds and accelerated operations mean real-time responsiveness, quick results, and increased productivity. The Intel® Xeon® Processor E7 v3 product family offers up to 18 cores and 36 threads per processor, a 20 percent increase compared to the prior generation, and up to 45 MB last level cache. Along with core improvements, these processors deliver:

  • Up to 70 percent more decision support analytic sessions per hour1, up to 39 percent faster business processing online transaction processing (OLTP) database performance2 and support for up to 39 percent more virtualized machines (VMs) throughput and density to improve IT infrastructure efficiencies3 versus prior generation
  • Up to six times business processing application generational performance improvement for in-memory transactional workloads that include optimizations with the new Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions (Intel® TSX)4 5
  • Up to 10 times greater performance per dollar, driving up to 85 percent lower total cost of ownership versus alternative IBM POWER8*-based solutions6 7

Platform Performance Highlights

Forty-seven new world record performance benchmark results with the best Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800 v3 product families-based platforms (as of December 23, 2015).

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.

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.

10

Relative performance is calculated by assigning a baseline value of 1.0 to one benchmark result, and then dividing the actual benchmark result for the baseline platform into each of the specific benchmark results of each of the other platforms, and assigning them a relative performance number that correlates with the performance improvements reported.
