The Quad Core Xeon X5570 processor is built to handle the ever-changing demands of a virtualized and consolidated computing environment. Each of the cores has L1 and L2 caches. An additional 8MB of L3 cache is available to be shared to bear really heavy loads or large data sets. The 64bit cores are designed to handle all of today’s x86 32bit software with ease and effortlessly migrate to 64bit software.

You also get Intel Virtualization Technology hardware enhancements that support software based virtualization. It works with VMware, Microsoft, Citrix and Parallels and products from an increasing number of software vendors. Virtualization combined with multiple cores gives you maximum power and performance per square foot.

  • newegg Quad-core Processing with 8MB Smart Cache The Intel Xeon X5570 processor features four complete processor cores in one physical package. Significant performance headroom, especially for multi-threaded applications, helps boost system utilization through virtualization and application responsiveness. Its 4 x 256KB L2 cache and 8MB shared L3 cache with Smart Cache technology minimize data latency and improve performance.
  • newegg Supports Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) With Intel VT, one hardware platform functions as multiple “virtual” platforms. For business, Intel VT offers improved manageability, limiting downtime and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions. In the home, Intel VT allows creating unique user environments for multiple family members using the same platform simultaneously.
  • newegg Intel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) Enhances next-generation IA-32 platforms with 64-bit addressability and related instructions, allowing flexibility for both 64-bit and 32-bit applications and operating systems.
  • newegg Execute Disable Bit (EDB) Intel's Execute Disable Bit function can prevent certain classes of malicious "buffer overflow" attacks when combined with a supporting operating system. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.
  • newegg Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST) EIST allows the system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency to decrease average power consumption and average heat production. Combined with existing power saving features, EIST may provide an excellent balance between providing power when you need it and conserving power when you don’t.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: This handles whatever I throw at it and quickly.

Cons: Cost, I want another...

Other Thoughts: If you don't have the Ram to match don't waste your time. The original machine had a single X5570 with 4GB of pc16000 ddr3. With just the OS (V64), AV and 3 Virtual machines running the machine would crawl. I swapped the ram out to 12GB of PC16000 and it fly's now. The overhead of MS OS requires a minimum of 8GB now, so if your spending the money on this processor don't cheap out on your memory quality or quantity. What's another ~$300 to bump the Memory to something suitable.

That's my .$02

4 out of 5 eggsPricey - but solid

Pros: Hyper-threading, quad-core, 64-bit

Cons: Price - at $1500, it is higher than we wanted to pay. We hope the price comes down before we add a second processor to our current box

Other Thoughts: Our document server (Dell R710) has one of these processors (and room for a second), with 6GB of 1333 DDR3 Ram. We are running MySQL 5.4 in 64-bit mode to take advantage of the memory over 4GB.
This box runs very well with 8 threads. When we add another processor (with 8 more threads), and some more RAM, we will be able to take over the world!
