Sandy bridge platform from ttec Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Sandy Bridge serversMarc van Schijndel Country Manager ttec
  • 2. Sandy Bridge Improvements✔ Sandy Bridge core designed with core count flexibility to meet changing market requirements✔ Up to 8 cores/16 threads✔ Core and frequency optimized stacks✔ Additional memory capacity – up to 4 channels with 3 DPC and 1600 Mhz support✔ Integrated PCI Express 3.0 for improved bandwidth and connectivity✔ Up to 40 lanes per socket✔ Improved power efficiency✔ Adds Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions for HPC and workstations 2
  • 3. Sandy Bridge ImprovementsArchitectural Change from Previous Gen. HPC BenefitsChangesIntel® AVX Double the FLOPS Improved computeCores Higher Core count – up to 8 sensitive applicationCache Scaling Increased cache size- up to 2.5MB per core perf. 3
  • 4. Sandy Bridge ImprovementsProcessor Changes Change from Previous Gen. HPC BenefitsMemory Additional memory channels Support up to 1600MHz Improved perf for BW sensitive applicationsIntel® QPI Up to 100% Faster QPI. Optional Support for S2S Node Ability to Scale. Solve larger Controller and 4S Designs problemsPCI Express* 40 lanes PCIe3 per socket** with less programming complexity.Platform Changes Change from Previous Gen. HPC BenefitsPatsburg Integrated 3Gb/s SAS/SATA Lower cost. Lower latency betweenPCI Express* PCI Express 3.0 peripherals and nodes. 4
