The Intel Xeon processor 5500 series is an adaptable server platform, adjusting performance and power usage in real time to meet the exact requirements of your computing workloads, while allowing manual adjustment for IT control.
The intelligent performance of the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series
also gives IT fine-grained manual control to adapt to changing priorities
or to meet service-level agreements (SLAs). For example, Intel Intelligent
Power Technology enables policy-based control that allows processors
to operate at optimal frequency and power. The operating systems can
make this determination automatically, or administrators can designate
which applications require high-frequency processing and which should
be executed at lower frequencies to conserve power.
