  • This slide MUST be used with any slides removed from this presentation Legal Disclaimer – Non Performance All products, computer systems, dates, and figures specified are preliminary based on current expectations, and are subject to change without notice. Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. Go to: http://www.intel.com/products/processor_number Intel, processors, chipsets, and desktop boards may contain design defects or errors known as errata, which may cause the product to deviate from published specifications. Current characterized errata are available on request. Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel ® processor, BIOS, virtual machine monitor (VMM). Functionality, performance or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Consult your PC manufacturer. For more information, visit http://www.intel.com/go/virtualization No computer system can provide absolute security under all conditions. Intel® Trusted Execution Technology (Intel® TXT) requires a computer system with Intel® Virtualization Technology, an Intel TXT-enabled processor, chipset, BIOS, Authenticated Code Modules and an Intel TXT-compatible measured launched environment (MLE). Intel TXT also requires the system to contain a TPM v1.s. For more information, visit http://www.intel.com/technology/security Requires a system with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology capability. Consult your PC manufacturer. Performance varies depending on hardware, software and system configuration. For more information, visit http://www.intel.com/technology/turboboost Intel® AES-NI requires a computer system with an AES-NI enabled processor, as well as non-Intel software to execute the instructions in the correct sequence. AES-NI is available on select Intel® processors. For availability, consult your reseller or system manufacturer. For more information, see http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel- advanced-encryption-standard-instructions-aes-ni/ Intel product is manufactured on a lead-free process. Lead is below 1000 PPM per EU RoHS directive (2002/95/EC, Annex A). No exemptions required Halogen-free: Applies only to halogenated flame retardants and PVC in components. Halogens are below 900ppm bromine and 900ppm chlorine.

  • This slide MUST be used with any slides with performance data removed from this presentation Legal Disclaimers - Performance Performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components and reflect the approximate performance of Intel products as measured by those tests. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance. Buyers should consult other sources of information to evaluate the performance of systems or components they are considering purchasing. For more information on performance tests and on the performance of Intel products, Go to: http://www.intel.com/performance/resources/benchmark_limitations.htm. Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or Web sites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced Web sites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase. Relative performance is calculated by assigning a baseline value of 1.0 to one benchmark result, and then dividing the actual benchmark result for the baseline platform into each of the specific benchmark results of each of the other platforms, and assigning them a relative performance number that correlates with the performance improvements reported. SPEC, SPECint, SPECfp, SPECrate. SPECpower, SPECjAppServer, SPECjEnterprise, SPECjbb, SPECompM, SPECompL, and SPEC MPI are trademarks of the Standard Performance Evaluation Corporation.

SAP and SAP NetWeaver are the registered trademarks of SAP AG in Germany and in several other countries. See http://www.sap.com/benchmark for more information. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.

  • This slide MUST be used with any slides with performance data removed from this presentation Optimization Notice Optimization Notice Intel® compilers, associated libraries and associated development tools may include or utilize options that optimize for instruction sets that are available in both Intel ® and non-Intel microprocessors (for example SIMD instruction sets), but do not optimize equally for non-Intel microprocessors. In addition, certain compiler options for Intel compilers, including some that are not specific to Intel micro-architecture, are reserved for Intel microprocessors. For a detailed description of Intel compiler options, including the instruction sets and specific microprocessors they implicate, please refer to the “Intel® Compiler User and Reference Guides” under “Compiler Options." Many library routines that are part of Intel ® compiler products are more highly optimized for Intel microprocessors than for other microprocessors. While the compilers and libraries in Intel® compiler products offer optimizations for both Intel and Intel- compatible microprocessors, depending on the options you select, your code and other factors, you likely will get extra performance on Intel microprocessors. Intel® compilers, associated libraries and associated development tools may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (Intel® SSE2), Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (Intel® SSE3), and Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (Intel® SSSE3) instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. While Intel believes our compilers and libraries are excellent choices to assist in obtaining the best performance on Intel® and non-Intel microprocessors, Intel recommends that you evaluate other compilers and libraries to determine which best meet your requirements. We hope to win your business by striving to offer the best performance of any compiler or library; please let us know if you find we do not. Notice revision #201011014

  • A Study Into Real-World Memory Errors Google research uncovers the benefits of hardened RAS features and capabilities • Google engineers and the University of Toronto worked together to study real-world memory errors across hundreds of thousands of Google data center servers. • Among the results from the two-and-a-half year study: – Memory errors are an order of magnitude more common than previously thought. – More than 8% of DIMMs were affected by correctable errors per year in Google’s computing environment. – Hard errors, the kind that cause system failure, account for a much higher percentage of total errors than anticipated. The annual incidence of un- correctable errors was 1.3% per machine and 0.22% per DIMM. – Occurring errors in a DIMM memory device provide a strong indication of future errors in the same component. It’s impossible to prevent underlying cause of many kinds of memory errors which can bring a system down http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~bianca/papers/sigmetrics09.pdf *Source: DRAM Errors in the Wild: A Large-Scale Field Study. http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~bianca/papers/sigmetrics09.pdf20
