High-performance computing presents unique challenges in performance, energy efficiency and parallel processing, and Intel has just unveiled a unique solution. The Intel Xeon processors and platforms use an entirely new transistor formula based on the second generation of the Intel Core microarchitecture. Intel’s new high-performance computing (HPC) platform is made possible by technological advancements in the new quad-core Intel Xeon processor 5400 series or dual-core Intel Xeon processor 5200 series, and Intel 5400 chipset. Intel Co-Founder Gordon Moore calls the processors which use Intel’s Hafnium-based High-k metal gate transistor formula and will be manufactured on the company’s 45-nanometer process, the biggest transistor advancement in 40 years.

The new Xeon family continues Intel’s leadership in delivering faster, more energy-efficient processors, with a 38 percent improvement in performance per watt over its predecessor.
