World Record Benchmark Performance

The powerful new Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family offers unparalleled versatility across diverse data center workloads. These processors are designed for architecting next-generation data centers running on software-defined infrastructure and supercharged for efficiency, performance, and agility across cloud-native and traditional applications.

Optimal Workload Performance Meets Intelligent Orchestration for Your Modern Data Center

The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family is the right architectural foundation for software-defined enterprise data centers optimized for cloud deployments that require increased scalability, automation, and orchestration capabilities across compute, storage, and network workloads. Built-in features provide preferential allocation of resources based on priority workloads for better utilization overall and enable greater performance across cloud-native and traditional applications while maintaining service level agreements (SLAs). The digital services of tomorrow will require modern, programmable data centers optimized for agility, operational efficiency, and scale on demand. Architect that next-generation foundation today with software-defined infrastructure solutions built on the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 product family. 

  • Up to 47% higher generational performance on a financial services option pricing workload 
  • Up to 28% average performance improvement across a variety of key industry-standard workloads and applications
  • Up to 50% average energy efficiency (performance per watt) improvement across a variety of key industry-standard workloads and applications using improved components and newer, higher capacity SSDs 
  • Support up to 2.4x more VMs/server reducing operational expenses and cost per VM by up to 58% maximizing CSP profitability versus two-generations-old servers (E5 v2) 1
