Deliver 160Gbps DPI Performance Using Intel® Architecture

Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2600 Series: Platform Brief
Product Overview

Based on the latest generation Intel® microarchitecture code name Sandy Bridge, the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 series is the first Intel® platform to offer solutions ranging from eight-core/single-socket up to 16-core/two-socket, providing significant performance improvement over previous generation Intel Xeon processors. For example, the eight-core Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2658 delivers nearly 68 percent performance gain over the previous-generation six-core Intel® Xeon® processor E5645, within a similar platform thermal profile. Increased memory capacity is provided with four memory channels per processor and up to 1600 MHz DDR3 memory.

This is the first dual-socket server-class Intel® processor series with PCI Express* 3.02 integrated on the processor die, to boost performance, reduce latency and save power. Integrated PCI Express 3.0 saves board real estate over previous generation three-chip platforms by eliminating the need for a separate I/O hub.

Developers can create a single design, then deliver a family of products due to a broad range of processor features, including eight cores (16 threads) or six cores (12 threads) and a thermal design power (TDP) range of 70 W to 95 W. Single- or dual-socket configurations, when paired with the Intel® C604 or Intel® C602-J chipset, maintain compatibility with enterprise platform requirements.

32nm process technology supports performance/watt-optimized designs. The processor series offers two options with robust thermal profiles for thermally constrained applications such as the Advanced-TCA* form factor and applications complying with NEBS Level 3 thermal specifications.

Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) accelerates compute performance for signal and image processing applications. The next release of Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) provides robust encryption without increasing overhead, while improving performance in AES-based communications cryptographic workloads.
