Intel India Development Centre (IIDC) in Bangalore is reported to have had a large hand in designing Intel’s latest Xeon server processor architecture, with the chip giant’s first 10-core CPU – in the Intel Xeon processor E7 family. The new architecture promises improved scalability, as well as increased memory and I/O capacity.
Meant for mission-critical IT challenges, the new family is supposed to deliver record four and eight-way x86-based processor performance. It also has record virtualization capabilities, delivering high VM densities and up to a 25% performance boost. The Intel Xeon E7 processor has 2.9 billion transistors, and 30MB of L3 cache memory.
