Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-4800 v2 Product Family

Four-socket business processing performance benchmarks

Intel® Xeon® processor

Make business intelligence your competitive advantage. The Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800/2800 v2 product families: Unlock the potential of your data—it’s incredible what you can find when you know where to look.

Server-side Java* performance using SPECjbb*2013

Used for evaluating the performance and scalability of environments for Java business applications, the application models a worldwide supermarket company IT infrastructure that handles a mix of point of sale requests, online purchases, and data mining operations. It exercises the CPU, memory, and network I/O. Performance is quantified using both a pure throughput metric and a metric that measures critical throughput under service-level agreements (SLAs). For more information, see www.spec.org.

Reduce your server count by increasing your per server performance with the next generation Intel Xeon processor E7 v2 product family by increasing SPECjbb2013 performance by up to 2.7x over the previous generation Intel Xeon processor E7-4870.

Best four-socket publications as of February 2014.

Product and Performance Information


1. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/performance.

2. Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.

3. 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.

4. Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice. Notice revision #20110804
