Intel this week introduced the 22-nanometer Xeon E5 2600 v2 product family of processors for servers, storage, and networking infrastructure, promising up to a 50 per cent uptick in performance and a 45 per cent gain in energy efficiency compared with the preceding generation of Xeon E5 chips.

The next-generation processors have set 15 new dual-socket performance world records across benchmarking tests that measure computing performance in areas like running databases, enterprise computing, web services, technical computing, virtualisation, and energy efficiency, said Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s Datacenter and Connected Systems Group.
