Intel's next-generation processor platform is designed to deliver improvements in memory bandwidth, throughput speed, power consumption and overall system performance to provide an optimized solution for DP processor-based servers and workstations. This rich stable of technology improvements addresses the requirements of today's data-hungry systems and software applications that crave performance from a range of functions, such as financial and scientific modeling to visualization and data base retrieval applications. This new Intel offering features an advanced Intel Xeon Processor and an enhanced chipset that reduces or even eliminates system bottlenecks by balancing performance between the processor, I/O and memory. The bottom line is this new Intel Xeon Processor platform will offer improved performance, reliability, serviceability and power savings for enterprise solutions. In order to maximize the performance gains of your IBM eServer xSeries server consider upgrading to a second Intel Xeon Processor. The incremental performance gains achieved by fully populating your DP processor-based server sometimes far outweigh the incremental costs. By fully populating your xSeries server, you potentially immediately enjoy the price/performance benefits and maximize the return on investment for a relatively small incremental cost.
