Intel Xeon X5570 

Released March, 2009
  • 2.93 GHz
  • Quad core
7.3 Out of 10

Central to that aim is the concept of scalability in multi-core configurations and multi-socket scenarios.
by Tech Radar (Mar, 2009)
In a preliminary run of SPEC CPU2006, arguably the most widely respected CPU performance benchmark in the world, the X5570 is capable of an estimated floating point base score of over 150.

Results: I was only able to run Cinebench R10 in 32-bit mode since that is what version of Windows Server was installed, but you can see the insane amount of horse power that this 2P server platform has to offer.

Cinebench R10 was able to put a 100% load across all the cores on all of the physical and logical cores, which makes this a great benchmark to look at multi-core platforms.

Reviews Word on the street for the Intel Xeon X5570


9.0
The final "Prescott" revision of the Pentium 4 processor architecture was struggling to meet ambitious targets for operating frequency.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Socket Type

When it comes to pricing the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series ranges in price from $188 to $1,600 in quantities of 1,000.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)
The new Nehalem based Intel Xeon 5500 series processors do great on this benchmark as well as the Worxx CPU benchmark.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)
If you take the 32M speed test score and compare it to the database of scores at HWBot the 4.515 second test score would place this test system in the top 20 fastest systems in the world at stock speeds.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)

Socket

T/s. Thanks to the lower QPI speed the DDR memory can only run at 1066MHz and as a result the memory performance suffers compared to the pair of Intel Xeon X5570 processors running at 2.93GHz with DDR3 1333MHz memory modules.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)
As far as specs are concerned, the processors support tri-channel DDR3, 4MB or 8MB L3 cache, and an 80-130W TDP.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)
In our benchmarks, a pair X5570s running at 2.93GHz are anywhere from 50 to 100 per cent faster than two 2.7GHz "Shanghai" Opterons, the fastest multi-socket AMD processor we have tested.

Performance

Benchmark Results: This CPU Queen benchmark is simple integer benchmark focuses on the branch prediction capabilities and the misprediction penalties of the CPU.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)
While I would have loved to get my hands on a pair of Xeon W5580 processors, I was able to get a pair of Intel Xeon X5570 processors to benchmark!
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)
Benchmark Results: When it comes memory latency the pair of Intel Xeon X5570 doesn't dissapoint and performs much faster than the other two configurations that I was able to run some benchmarks on.

Type of CPU

First came the Core Duo mobile processor.
by Tech Radar (Mar, 2009)
Intel does not have just one or two of these processors coming out, they have ten Gainestown processors that are on the way to retail markets around the world.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)
Major computer makers, such as Hewlett-Packard, Dell, and IBM will feature them in servers soon, if they have not already.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)

Benchmark

That's right, in some benchmarks, including our computational fluid dynamics test, Nehalem is literally twice as quick.
by Tech Radar (Mar, 2009)
Just for fun I disabled HyperThreading and Turbo Mode in the server board BIOS and ran the benchmark again to see what would happen on just the eight physical cores and discovered a 23% drop in performance.
by Legit Reviews (Mar, 2009)
Some strange results were observed in the AES benchmark though.
