AMAX Launches New Generation of Six-Core, Energy Efficient 32nm Intel® Xeon® 5600 Processor-Based HPC Solutions

Delivering New Levels of Performance, Efficiency, and Reliability

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) -  AMAX, a leading ODM manufacturer of appliance platforms and custom server and storage builder in North America, launches a new series and announces the arrival of the highly anticipated next generation 32nm six-core and quad-core Intel Xeon intelligent HPC solutions, based on the Intel Xeon Processor 5600 Series, codename Westmere, and featuring groundbreaking technology that offers unmatched performance capabilities and exceptional energy efficiency.

AMAX's next-generation Xeon processor-based ServMax HPC solutions fully utilize the power of the next-generation Intel® microarchitecture, which automatically increases processor frequency and utilizes hyper-threading when needed.

Additional features of AMAX's next-generation 32nm Xeon 5600 Series processor-based ServMax HPC solutions include:

  • Up to six Intel® microarchitecture-based processing cores, 12 threads, and 12 megabytes of level three cache on each processor.
  • Intel® Turbo Boost Technology and Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology intelligently optimize performance.
  • New hardware-based instructions for the Advanced Encryption Standard accelerate secure server transaction performance.
  • Trusted Execution Technology® for secured trusted system boot.
  • Intel® Intelligent Power Technology automatically adjusts power consumption to meet the workload.
  • New low power processor SKUs and low voltage DDR3 memory support options can increase power savings.
  • Support more virtualized machines at higher levels of performance and latency reduction in a virtualized environment, and more robust hardware-assisted virtualization across CPU, chipset, LAN.
  • Higher frequencies on servers for 130w systems.
  • Up to 40% higher performance/watt boost and 30% lower power consumption over previous generation of processors.
  • Over 15x performance (or 15:1 consolidation) vs. single-core servers.
  • Up to 61% improved performance for high performance computing / technical compute applications.
  • Up to 46% improved performance for general purpose / mainstream enterprise compute applications. 

"In past years, our clients that required systems capable of low voltage and multi-core computing had limited options," stated Ms. Jean Shih, President of AMAX. "The new generation of multi-core Intel Xeon processor-based server solutions now provide our customers with the flexibility of achieving the maximum computing power, with improved server responsiveness, exceptional energy efficiency and virtualization performance capabilities, resulting in significant lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and an optimal virtual computing environment."
