Key points:Intel AVX is a collection of CPU instructions that increase floating point performance by doubling the length of the FP registers to 256-bits and reducing the number of operations required to execute large FP tasksApplications include: Science/Engineering, Data Mining, Visual Processing, HPCStory:Another avenue that Intel has taken advantage to add more flexible performance is to add in instructions that make the processor do more work every clock cycle. Intel Advanced Vector Extensions can offer up to double the floating point operations per clock cycle by doubling the length of registers. Where this is used is when you need to address very complex problems or deal with large-number calculations, integral to many technical, financial and scientific computing problems. Workloads that can see improvements from AVX range from manufacturing optimizations, to the analysis of competing options to content creation and engineering simulations. Intel AVX is the newest in a long line of instruction innovations going back to the mid 90’s with MMX and SSE1 which are all now standard software practices. Intel AVX is supported by Intel and 3rd party compilers that take advantage of the latest instructions to optimize code to significantly reduce compute time enabling faster time to results. With the Xeon processor E5-2600 family you can be confident that you’ll benefit from those optimizations as new applications are introduced and updates to existing software packages are released.Legal Info:(AVX Performance) Source: Performance comparison using Linpack benchmark.

Key points:Significant performance gains delivered by featuressuch as new Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions and improved Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0To improve flexibility and operational efficiency significant improvements in I/O with new Intel® Integrated I/O which reduces latency ~30% will adding more lanes and higher bandwidth with support for PCI Express 3.0Story:To meet the growing demands of IT such as readiness for cloud computing, the growth in users and the ability to tackle the most complex technical problems, Intel has focused on increasing the capabilities of the processor that lies at the heart of a next generation data center. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family is the next generation Xeon processor that replaces Platforms based on the Intel Xeon processor 5600 & 5500 series. Continuing to build on the success of the Xeon 5600, the E5-2600 product family has increased core count and cache size in addition to supporting more efficient instructions with Intel® Advance Vector Extensions, to deliver up to an average of 80% more performance across a range of workloads. These processors will offer better than ever performance no matter what your constraint is – floor space, power or budget – and on workloads that range from the most complicated scientific exploration to simple, yet crucial, web serving and infrastructure applications. In addition to the raw performance gains, we’ve invested in improved I/O with Intel Integrated I/O which reduces latency ~30% will adding more lanes and higher bandwidth with support for PCIe 3.0. This helps to reduce network and storage bottlenecks to unleash the performance capabilities of the latest Xeon processor.
