Intel has equipped the Xeon X7460 with a total of six CPU cores, which offer first-class performance at a clock rate of 2.66 GHz. In addition, there is a 16 MB L2 cache memory, which allows a fast buffering of data and commands. Modern operating systems based on the 64-bit architecture are of course supported by the processor.
Intel's proprietary Demand-based switching technology allows the Xeon X7460 to be used as needed: the TDP value is 130 watts, however, this is only reached when the CPU is fully utilized. The VT-x technology for virtualization and the Execute Disable bit for better protection against malware are also integrated in the used processor.
To run the Intel Xeon X7460 Hexa-Core CPU, a PGA 604 socket is required on the mainboard of the server or workstation. A suitable heat sink is also required. Compatible systems include the HP ProLiant DL580 G5, IBM System x3950 M2 and Dell PowerEdge R900.
