At Server Mania, our goal is to deliver fast, reliable hosting services to our customers each and every day. That’s why we’re thrilled to tell you about the inclusion of the new Intel Xeon E3-1200 Series Version 5 CPU in our product line. We feel this will be an excellent addition, and we hope that you agree.
To help you get the most out of Server Mania’s latest offering, here are some things to consider when making a decision about a move to the latest version of the Intel Xeon Processor.
What’s New About the Intel Xeon Series Version 5?
The Intel Xeon line is quickly becoming the processor of choice for high-demand server and workstation applications. They can handle the needs of data-intensive business applications while maintaining speed and Intel’s legendary energy efficiency.
Perhaps best of all, there is Intel’s well-regarded scalability that gives users environments to match server use with their current workload, while still providing ample room for growth.
With the launch of this product, codename “Skylake,” Intel has officially made the move from their Denlow Platform to the new Greenlow Platform with this series. It offers more features and drastically improved graphics handling. It’s also the first in the Xeon line to support DDR4 memory. With 64GB, the RAM in Version 5 is double that of Version 3. This is augmented by a base processor frequency of 3.5 GHz, up from 3.4 GHz in its predecessor.
In other words, it provides the same speed and reliability you’ve come to expect from the Intel Xeon series, but faster!
How does the Latest Intel Processor Compare to Earlier Versions?
Make no mistake; the entire Intel Xeon line is well-respected because of its performance and dependability. If you’re satisfied with the speed and performance of your Intel Xeon E3-1270 v3 or Intel Xeon E3-1240 v3, you don’t need to make an immediate upgrade.
However, if you want the state-of-the-art processing speeds of Intel’s latest line, backed by Server Mania’s unparalleled support at an affordable price, we’ve got you covered!
You know our servers are secure, reliable and running at top speed. Now see how Intel’s Xeon E3-1240 v5 compares with some of our existing Intel products:
