The quad-core processor Xeon E5420 operates its cores at 2.5 GHz and consumes a maximum of 80 watts (TDP). But the Intel Demand-based switching technology makes always sure that the CPU only uses as much energy as necessary. Only when the computing power is really required, a corresponding adjustment of supply to provide maximum performance.
Due to the 64-bit instruction set, you can Intel Xeon E5420 use also under modern operating systems. In addition, can use the VT-x technology to achieve the best results in the virtual environment. The security has Intel but by no means negligible, so the Execute Disable Bit technology has been implemented.
Plan the use of the Intel Xeon E5420 processor in your computer system. If you first check the manual for your server or workstation. Often there the supported CPUs are specified, the motherboard necessarily an LGA 771 socket must supply, in which the CPU is placed and secured.
