Xeon 7600 is giving us the opportunity to experience for being the first ever quad core in big production that focuses mainly on server platforms with many processors. It enables the consumers to experience servers that have excellent work and you can rely to it that it will enhance the application and server performance in virtualized environments. With this new quad processor, we will be confident that it has the capacity to work well even with fewer server systems.
What is Xeon 7300 Quad Processor?
The Xeon 7300 series has been given the codename Tigerton. It consist quad core processor that has 4 sockets, with 2 dual core Core 2 chips in a ceramic module. Its minimum feature size is 65nm. Its target market are server companies with computers up to 32 CPU’s per host. This processor promises twice the great work/watt from its former generation, the 7100 series. It is capable of 32 and 64-bit processor, and L2 cache per processor that can go up to 8mb of memory to integrate data into lesser systems.
The platform that they’re using on the Xeon 7300 series is called Caneland, which also comes with the 7300 chipset called Clarksboro. This new chip will give you 4 1,066 MHz that combines with an individual processor, which gives us the power to lessen the workload of the processors and its memory. And also, with this chipset, it gives us a set up that allows the full front side bus transmission per processor. Because of the Caneland chipset, you will be sure that it will be energy efficient and give the available power to other components of the server.
What are the benefits that I get if I chose the Xeon 7300 series for my server?
- DBS or Demand-Based Switching with Enhanced SpeedStep Technology – this technology helps us lessen even lower the average consumption of energy and has the possibility to enhance the system’s properties.
- 1066 MT/s Dedicated High-Speed Interconnects or DHSI – fast and dedicated combination for increased pace
- Core Microarchitecture – lessens cooling problems with performance per watt enhancements to for better transmission of the data centers
- Virtualization Technology – The Xeon 7300 series has included a new VT enhancement that helps lessen the possibility of interruption to further increase the software efficiency
- Quad Core Processing – increases expandable work and cost/virtual machines. Increases execution and multi tasking possibilities for multi-threaded features and heavy multi tasking workloads. It also helps with enhancing the structures implementation through virtualization and its features understanding.
- 8MB of on-die L2 cache – it can let you allocate up to 4mb of L2 cache in one core. It lessens inactivity by putting together big data sets closer to the processor, decreasing the time of transmission to the main memory. It also raises the productivity of L2 cache to core date exchange, increasing main memory to processor transmission and decreasing inactivity.
Xeon 7300 Series Models
There are 8 available models of the Xeon 7300 series. Its available in both dual core and quad core. L2 cache ranges from 4MB to 6MB. All of these available processors have Virtualization Technology and 64-bit architecture. For big memory footprint that needs a certain high end system, there are dual-core SKU options to choose from.
