(The Hosting News) – Hivelocity, a dedicated server, private cloud and infrastructure services provider to customers in over 130 countries, has launched a new server line this week that includes Intel’s brand new processor family, codenamed Broadwell. This newest generation of processors is Intel’s first Xeon based system-on-chip (SoC) and should quickly become a staple in the dedicated server market.
The Intel Broadwell Xeon D-1540 includes 8 physical cores, 16 threads and the ability to take 128GB of DDR4 RAM. Preliminary benchmarks have the new Intel Xeon D-1540 outperforming well known industry work horses like the Intel Xeon E3-1276 v3 and E5-1620 v3 processors. As much as these processors are powerful for the consumer they are to be beloved equally by data center operators due to their power efficiency.
