Intel Xeon Scalable Processors Set 95 New Performance World Records

xeon scalable 2x1What’s New: Intel today announced 95 new performance world records1 for its Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors using the most up-to-date benchmarks from industry-standard bodies. These world records were achieved in servers from major original equipment manufacturers, ranging from single-socket systems up to eight-socket systems.

“I’m extremely proud of the 95 world record performance benchmarks that our partners have delivered, but even more delighted to see the real-world performance that our customers are achieving on the fastest ramping Intel Xeon processor family in history.”
– Lisa Spelman, vice president and general manager of Intel Xeon products and data center marketing

Why CPU Performance Leadership Matters: The continued explosion of data and the need to process, store, analyze and share it is driving industry innovation and incredible demand for computing performance in the cloud, the network and the enterprise. Delivering world-record CPU performance enables enterprises to accelerate their operations and increase productivity. The use of Intel Xeon Scalable processors within cloud data centers, the enterprise and out to the edge allows customers to build fast, high-performing energy-efficient infrastructure.

What Performance Records Were Set: Intel Xeon Scalable processors deliver world-record performance in a variety of server platforms, ranging from general computing workloads running on single-socket systems to advanced technical computing and big data analytics workloads running on eight-socket systems. All systems tested include mitigations for Spectre and Meltdown.

A full list of the most recent world records can be found at Intel.com’s Intel Xeon Scalable benchmarks page.

What Intel Xeon Scalable Processors Deliver: The Intel Xeon Scalable processor features a new core built from the ground up for the diverse workload needs and rapid growth of the data-centric era. The processor family offers up to 28 cores and 56 threads per processor, a 50 percent increase in memory channels and 20 percent more PCIe lanes compared with the prior generation, and delivers up to 2-times flops/cycle with Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) (compared with Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 2 (Intel® AVX2)) enabling large gains in many high-performance computing applications and the foundation for emerging workloads such as artificial intelligence.

The Small Print:

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 19, 2016 – Intel Corporation today announced the availability of its 6th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor family for the modern workforce. The latest iteration of Intel Core vPro processors addresses the security and productivity demands of large businesses with new innovations in authentication security, enhanced performance and collaboration for 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks™, All-in-Ones and the latest desktops.


"With incredible, new, eye-catching designs, added performance, and longer battery life, the 6th Gen Intel Core and Intel Core vPro processors are setting a new standard for business computing," said Tom Garrison, vice president and general manager for the Intel Business Client division. "By also adding enhanced security capabilities in the hardware, Intel has helped to make these newest PCs an integral part of a business's overall security solution, making users more secure and productive than ever before.


Locking the PC's Virtual Front Door with More than Password Protection
Hackers are finding new ways to break into old PCs through the virtual front door by stealing user credentials to gain privileges inside organizations. Today, more than half of data breaches start with misused or stolen user credentials5. Older PCs that use eight-character passwords that change every 90 days worked well a decade ago, but increasingly sophisticated attack methods require a deeper level of security.


To address this, Intel is previewing a new security innovation called Intel® Authenticate for businesses to begin internally testing and qualifying. Intel Authenticate is a hardware-enhanced, multifactor authentication solution that strengthens identity protection on the PC, making it less vulnerable2 to identity and security credential attacks.


Intel Authenticate verifies identities by using a combination of up to three hardened factors at the same time: "something you know," such as a personal identification number; "something you have," including a mobile phone; and "something you are," like a fingerprint. IT can choose from multiple hardened factors of authentication that are based on company policies, and no longer has to rely solely on employees remembering complicated passwords2. Intel Authenticate is compatible with Microsoft Windows* 7, 8 and 10, and is available for customers to preview.


Upgrading Business PCs Adds Productivity, Reduces Overall Cost
Older laptops can cost businesses $4,203 per year, for every three PCs, in maintenance and lost productivity6. New business PCs can help address this by delivering up to 2.5 times the performance and a 30-times increase in graphics performance over a 5-year-old device7, providing users with much more productive and powerful business tools1, 8, 9, 10.


Acer*, Asus*, Dell*, Fujitsu*, HP*, Lenovo*, Panasonic* and Toshiba* are all releasing enterprise-ready devices featuring the new Intel processors. Enterprise buyers can choose from a variety of designs including 2 in 1s, Ultrabooks, ultrathin clamshells, mini PCs and All-in-One desktops tailored to any work environment to meet the needs of businesses of any size.


A New and Better Way to Meet
The way businesses collaborate across the globe is changing, however the meeting room tools that enable effective meetings have not kept pace with a more dispersed workforce. Intel is introducing updates to Intel® Unite™ for a smarter and more connected way to meet in the workplace. It includes extended display capabilities so meeting participants no longer need to search for the right adapter or dongle. Both onsite and remote attendees can more easily and securely view and interact with content in real time. Employees can instantly start meetings using new or existing displays or projectors. Auto-disconnect and integration of Skype for Business offer customers a seamless meeting experience.


Helping Small and Medium Businesses Grow
For small businesses, Intel is offering Intel® Small Business Advantage (Intel SBA), an easy-to-use solution to help small business owners protect and grow their company. It provides small business owners with an easy and centralized way to connect and share information coupled with automatic security and maintenance updates. Intel SBA includes collaboration features, such as chat and file share, coupled with security capabilities, like the USB blocker, to help keep small business owners in control of their data.
