Intel Xeon E6540

The Intel Xeon E6540 processor has up to 2.00 GHz processing frequency, 18 MB cache, up to 2 socket scalability, and supports Intel Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading technology. It retails at $1712. Built based on the 45 nm Intel Microarchitecture (Nehalem) and Intel Virtualization technology platform, the Intel Xeon processor supports data-demanding applications. It features up to 6 cores supporting 12 processing threads and 18 MB of cache per processor and 4 high-bandwidth interconnect links that allow multiple processors to directly connect to each other. The processor also supports up to 20:1 server consolidation, and with four times the 4-socket memory capacity and up to eight times the memory bandwidth, the Intel Xeon is ideal for business intelligence and ERP. The 18 MB L3 cache allows users to spend more time processing data instead of looking for it. Other features on the processor include integrated virtualization hardware support with Intel VT; gives users the ability to build one compatible group of platforms across all Intel Core Microarchitecture-based servers; optimized realiability, availability and serviceability (RAS) for mission-critical processing requirements; Intel Machine Check Architecture Recovery which automatically detects and recover many uncorrectable errors; and SMI lane failover and QPI self healing which identify problems and modify the system to keep running.

Features

The Intel Xeon E6540 features 6 processing core and 12 threads per socket with Intel Hyper-Threading technology, with optimized performance with 45nm manufacturing technology and increased headroom for multi-threaded applications and data-demanding applications; 18 MB of L3 cache for cache-to-data transfers speeds, maximizing main memory-to-processor bandwidth; reduce latency by storing larger data sets closer to the processor; Intel QuickPath Interconnect for speeds of up to 25.6 GB/s point-to-point connections between processors, and between the processors and the I/O hubs; scaling of processors from 2- to 8-sockets, and higher use of third-party node controllers; as well as Quad Channel Integrated Memory Controller with up to 1 TB of memory with 16GB DIMMs in a 4-socket system. The processor also features SMI lane failover and QPI self-healing which enable the platform to identify problems and fail over or modify itself to keep running. It comes bundled with a suite of processor hardware enhancements that assists virtualization software to deliver capabilities including 64-bit guest OS support. It also has Intel VT FlexPriority and FlexMigration which allows users to add the Intel xeon processor compatible to existing virtualization pool with single, two, 4-socket or 4+ socket Intel-based servers. The processor is with compatible with 64-bit or 32-bit applications and operating systems.
