Lenovo Racks Up Six Server Benchmark World Records With New Intel Xeon E5 v4 Systems

Intel’s unveiling of their new Broadwell-EP based Xeon E5 v4 server and HPC processors made a splash today in the enterprise markets, as the new multicore chips that range all the way up to monster 22-core variants and built on Intel’s 14nm process technology, offer better efficiency and higher compute throughput along with new features and optimizations. Specifically, improvements in AVX instructions optimization, for example, which are critical for floating point operations that are vital to multimedia, scientific and financial processing workloads, afford the chip performance boosts in excess of 50 percent in certain mission-critical applications.
