Features and benefits
1333/1066 MHz system bus Supports Intel® Xeon® processors.
Multicore processing Multi-core Intel® Xeon® processors deliver a quantum leap in processing capacity without a comparable increase in power consumption, so you can enhance your computing solutions efficiency while helping to keep server rooms cooler.
  • 4 cores per processor means more computing power for your business at an extremely affordable price
  • Dual Core processors are also available
Intel® Core™ microarchitecture
  • Better performance on multiple application types and user environments as well as data-demanding workloads such as application servers, e-mail servers and web servers.
  • 80W and 50W Intel® Xeon® processors reduce cooling challenges with performance per watt improvements, helping to enable denser server deployments.

Large 12 MB on-die L2 cache

(2 x 6 MB)

  • Large on-die L2 cache stores data and instructions closer to the processor helping to reduce time wasted searching main memory.
  • With up to 50% larger caches, the 45nm Intel® Xeon® processors deliver a boost in performance of up to 23% to your everyday business applications, giving you greater productivity and faster time to insight.
Intel Virtualization Technology A processor hardware enhancement that helps you to create virtual servers, so you have fewer servers to manage and maintain without sacrificing application performance.
Native DDR2 Registered DIMM technology
  • 6 slots supporting configurable low power DDR2 memory
  • Fast speed memory operating at 533/667 MHz
  • Registered ECC DIMMs help protect data and improve reliability.
1333 MHz dual independent bus Dedicated high speed bus (one per processor) gives you more data capacity and throughput, moving more data quickly through the system

Product and Performance Information


1. Intel® processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

2. Performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components and reflect the approximate performance of Intel® products as measured by those tests. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance. Buyers should consult other sources of information to evaluate the performance of systems or components they are considering purchasing. For more information on performance tests and on the performance of Intel products, visit www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/benchmarks/resources-benchmark-limitations.html or call (U.S.) 1-800-628-8686 or 1-916-356-3104.

3. Intel® Virtualization Technology requires a computer system with an enabled Intel® processor, BIOS, virtual machine monitor (VMM) and, for some uses, certain platform software enabled for it. Functionality, performance or other benefits will vary depending on hardware and software configurations and may require a BIOS update. Software applications may not be compatible with all operating systems. Please check with your application vendor.

4. Compared to Intel® Xeon® Processor 5300 Series. Up to 25% (1.25x) higher Performance X5460 vs X5365 - Published/measured results on SPECjbb2005* - Oct 2, 07

5. Mainstream support for up to 24 GB DDR2 memory. Maximum capacity of 32 GB configurable at introduction and up to 48 GB in 2008
