Intel has launched its family of Xeon E5-2600 processors for servers which are designed to handle demands from cloud computing and virtualization as far as the data center goes. IBM, Dell, Hitachi, HP and other OEMs have also unveiled their systems based on these new chips. The chips are set to deliver 80% more in terms of performance and 50% more in terms of energy efficiency. This is when compared to the previous Xeon 5600 chips. The Xeon E5-2600 will also enhance security and networking aspects.

With these chips, a data center can get hold of 8 cores which can handle the ever increasing demands from internet users. As per Cisco, there will be more than 3 billion internet users and more than 15 billion connected devices in another 5 years.

Such numbers can be handled more effectively through the new chips from Intel.
