The Next New Thing: Intel Xeon Processor E5-2600 v3 Product Family Launch

Posted on September 9, 2014 by admin

Every day, the IT world is bombarded with hundreds of product announcements. Some are interesting, some are boring, and some downright forgettable. When Intel releases a new processor, however, it is truly an event.

We are talking about a core change (no pun intended) to almost every Intel server we build — faster performance and greater power efficiency. This is a big deal, and we are very excited to launch an entire line of new servers around the updated platform. Two examples from the new line are shown below.  Click the catalog link below the servers to see the entire line.
