® ® Intel Xeon Processor E5-2400 Series-based Platforms for Intelligent Systems Ideal for Intelligent Systems—context-aware, securely managed embedded and communications devices that connect seamlessly to networks, clouds and each other. Product Overview Based on the latest generation Intel® micro- architecture (codenamed Sandy Bridge), the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2400 series provides the performance, I/O and memory capabilities for a wide range of compute- intensive embedded and communications applications including communication infra- structure servers, blades and appliances; security servers, blades and appliances; carrier-grade rack-mount servers; propri- etary form factors, such as router modules; AdvancedTCA*-based blades; and medical servers, blades and appliances. Platform options include four-, six- and eight-core single-socket solutions, and up to 16-core dual-socket solutions, providing significant performance improvement over previous-generation Intel® Xeon® proces- sors. For example, the 1.8 GHz eight-core ∆ at 70W Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2448L thermal design power (TDP) delivers nearly 44 percent performance gain over the previous-generation 2.4 GHz six-core ∆ 1 at 80W TDP. Intel® Xeon® processor E5645 Increased memory capacity is provided with three memory channels per processor and up to 1600 MHz DDR3 memory. 32nm process technology supports perfor- mance/watt-optimized designs. Three of the processors in this series feature robust thermal profiles for thermally constrained applications such as the Advanced-TCA form factor and applications complying with NEBS Level 3 thermal specifications. Developers can create a single design, then deliver a family of products due to a broad range of processor features, including eight- core (16 threads), six-core (12 threads) and four-core (8 threads) options, and a TDP range of 50W to 95W. Single- or dual-socket configurations, when paired with the Intel® C604 or Intel® C602-J chipset (see Figure 1), maintain compatibility with enterprise platform requirements. This server-class Intel® processor series 2 integrated on the includes PCI Express* 3.0 processor die to boost performance, reduce latency and save power. This saves board real estate over previous-generation three- chip platforms by eliminating the need for a separate I/O hub. Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions accelerates compute performance for signal and image processing applications. The newest release of Intel® AES New 3 provides robust encryption Instructions without increasing overhead, while improving performance in AES-based communications cryptographic workloads. All processors feature Intel® Virtualization 4 for flexible virtualization, and Technology an Intel® QuickPath Interconnect (Intel® QPI) link which maximizes interprocessor trans- 5 fer rates. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 6 and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology deliver top performance for bandwidth- intensive applications.
