On this fast paced world, everything has changed and always having new and interesting things. People always want something new, top of the line and unique. As an example, new phones have been launched and you are wondering what you will buy. Before choosing a phone, it is better for you to know its capabilities and use for you. You can’t just buy something just because it’s shiny or looks good on you, you have to have it even though it is really expensive. It has to have everything that you need in order for it to be worth buying.
That is also the same with choosing and buying the right processor for your server. Many new processors have been launched in the market, but you don’t know which one to choose. Knowing the product and its features in depth will help you get the right one that you need.
On March of 2010, the Xeon 7500 series of processors was launched, also with its server chips name Nehalem-EX. It uses a 45nm technology, with 8 cores and 16 threads. Using this processor for your servers you will see a drastic increase in performance, productivity and accuracy. With these features, it enables the server managers to fuse up to 20 older single-core, 4 chip servers into a single server in using the Xeon 7500 series. You can run the most demanding and heavy workloads and still maintain the efficiency that you want. The servers that are running on these processors are also smart and adaptable, giving you a top of the line virtualization achievement and groundwork for additional virtual devices per server. Servers based on this processor has both device-assisted virtualization and multi- processing support that gives us a better performance, gets rid of security issues, and is safe from losing data.

Xeon 7500 Enhanced Features
- Turbo Boost Technology allows processors to increase and enable faster speeds when needed
- Hyper-Threading Technology gives better performance in multi tasking features to distribute greater results and adaptability
- 10x increase in transmission of data
- Interconnected networking
- Consumes 46x lower power
- Has ECC that lessens and prevents errors and data issues
- Has upgraded QPI, fixes data connections before they fail,
- Has new SMI Lane Fall over, clock fall over and QPI Packet Retry
- Super Node – can use up to 256 sockets, 8x the memory transmission and 4x bigger memory storage that can store up to 1 Terabyte in 4 processor structure, that is very good for bigger servers with heavy workloads
