Intel has the Xeon X5550 donated four cores, which are operated with 2.66GHz clock frequency, whereby this can be increased dynamically in Turbo mode at up to 3.06GHz. Thanks to Hyper-Threading enabled, additionally enables eight threads in parallel editing. Thus you already received enough power for demanding tasks or the use in multi-user system.
The Intel Xeon X5550 processor has been completely manufactured in 45 nm process and has a TDP of 95 W. Depending on the server up to two of these CPUs can be used together. Your mainboard an LGA 1366 socket is required to use. Look to the best in the technical specification of your server or workstation, because it may well be restrictions by the respective manufacturers here.
With respect to the memory support of Xeon X5550 a maximum capacity of 144 GB, with DDR3 RAM is required. Support for ECC-RAM is also, of course, also given. To provide as much flexibility in modern virtualization systems, also the techniques VT-x and VT-d are included in the Intel CPU.
