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 new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors.

Empowering Transformation in a Digital World

Leadership Performance

The new Intel® Xeon® Scalable platform provides the foundation for a powerful data center platform that creates an evolutionary leap in agility and scalability. Disruptive by design, this innovative processor sets a new level of platform convergence and capabilities across compute, storage, memory, network, and security. Enterprises and cloud and communications service providers can now drive forward their most ambitious digital initiatives with a feature-rich, highly versatile platform. The Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor features a brand new core that is built from the ground up for the diverse workload needs of tomorrow’s datacenter; it offers up to 28 cores and 56 threads per processor, a 50 percent increase in memory channels and 20% more PCIe* lanes compared to the prior generation, and delivers:

  • 1.65X average performance across key industry-standard workloads1
  • 2X flops/cycle with Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (compared to Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2) enabling large gains in many HPC apps
  • Optimized to deliver 2.2X higher deep learning training and inference performance than prior generation2
  • Supports up to 4.2X more virtual machines (VMs) versus a four-five year old system, resulting in lower total cost of ownership3

Platform Performance Highlights

Over 58 new world record performance benchmark results with the best Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor-based platforms (as of 11 July 2017 or as noted).

Up to 4.2x more VMs based on virtualization consolidation workload: Based on Intel® internal estimates 1-Node, 2 x Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2690 on Romley-EP with 256 GB Total Memory on VMware ESXi* 6.0 GA using Guest OS RHEL* 6.4, glassfish3.1.2.2, postgresql* 9.2. Data Source: Request Number: 1718, Benchmark: server virtualization workload, Score: 377.6 @ 21 VMs Higher is better vs. 1-Node, 2 x Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8180 processor on Wolf Pass SKX with 768 GB Total Memory on VMware ESXi6.0 U3 GA using Guest VM's utilize RHEL 6 64 bit OS. Data Source: Request Number: 2563, Benchmark: server virtualization workload, Score: 1580 @ 90 VMs Higher is better.
