World Record Benchmark Performance

Bring your business’s best ideas to life by transforming big data and real-time analytics into new business opportunities while ensuring the reliability and uptime of the most business-critical services with the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800 v4 product families.

Turn Real-Time Analytics into Real Business Advantage

Leadership Performance

Accelerate performance across the data center to deliver real insights with real value in real time for the largest workloads running on fast, high-performing infrastructure. Faster transaction speeds and accelerated operations mean real-time responsiveness, quick results, and increased productivity. Offering up to 24 cores and 48 threads per processor, a 33 percent increase compared to the prior generation, and up to 60MB last level cache along with core improvements deliver:

  • Up to double the queries-per-hour answered enabling smarter decisions for businesses analyzing their sales and customer data.1 Ad-hoc cost per query has dropped from $21 to just $0.38 in just the past six-years—a 98% cost reduction, while queries-per-hour capability has increased by 19x.2
  • Up to 1.3x average performance across key industry-standard workloads.3
  • Up to 35% more virtual machines (VMs) and infrastructure applications throughput supported with same service-level agreement level to help IT grow line-of-business (LOB) heterogeneous needs.4
  • Use 1/3rd the servers for equivalent performance to lower operational expenses by replacing 4–5 year old installed platforms5, savings include lower network and server maintenance costs by up to 92%, lower utilities costs by up to 73%, and lower annual software licensing fees by up to 67%.

Platform Performance Highlights

Over 40 new world record performance benchmark results with the best Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800 v4 product families-based platforms (as of 30 March 2017).
