Intel's Sandy Bridge: Performance Boost, Power Consumption Cut

Intel's new Xeon E5-2600 series processors support up to eight processor cores and 768 GB of system memory. Intel said that, compared to its previous-generation Xeon 5600 processors, the new models offer up to 80 percent higher performance, as well as twice the performance in high performance computing applications.
