Intel Unveils Xeon 6500, 7500 Series

Ainsley Jones

Intel launched its Xeon 6500 and 7500 processors series, built on the Nehalem Ex architecture. The processors, which have up to eight cores, are geared toward organizations that are looking to consolidate their servers by scaling up instead of out, says Mike Vizard over at our CTO Edge site.


The high-end Xeon 7500 processors, which replace the Xeon 7400 series, are designed for more efficient processing, reports ITProPortal. The 7500 series comes with 20 new RAS (Reliability, Availability and Serviceability) features. The chips range in price from $774 to $3,692. In comparison, AMD's most expensive 12-core Opteron costs just $1,386.
