Dual-Core Technology Brief

Dell's Multi-core Enterprise Strategy

More processing capacity, efficiency and scalability to grow

Our enterprise class servers with 64-bit dual-core technology are engineered and built for today's most demanding computing environments. Dell dual-core servers deliver the processing performance needed to keep your business running smoothly.

More processing capacity, greater efficiency and the scalability to grow with your expanding enterprise computing needs

Greater performance for multi-threaded applications

Dell's current line of dual-core servers put two processor cores into a single socket, helping to increase the server's performance where it counts - processing performance - especially when working with technical applications.

When combined with Intel's Hyper-Threading technology, the number of threads per socket is doubled, and is designed to improve efficiency and performance even more.

Dell's partners Microsoft® , Oracle® , SAP® , Red Hat® , Novell®  and several other ISVs offer multi-threaded applications and operating systems that take advantage of the full benefits of multi-core processing.

As more applications are optimized for hyper-threading technology, new multi-core platforms are projected to become even more powerful and efficient.

Power and performance that fits into your data centre

Dell servers with dual-core processors make an excellent platform for consolidation because of their ability to scale into your current architecture, and grow with your future needs.

Because dual-core processors* can provide as much as 53 percent more performance in the same physical space as similarly configured single-core servers, you can achieve greater overall performance without expanding the size of your data centre.

Power consumption also benefits. Dell's dual-core servers offer up to 43 percent more performance per watt than single-core processors*, helping to increase performance. Which means dual-core processors can provide more performance for roughly the same amount of power - letting you allocate resources for other business-critical functions.

Dell's holistic commitment to multi-core technology

Dell's commitment to the multi-core platform is focused on far more than just the processor; it includes:

  • A focus on the complete platform, including processor, memory and I/O.
  • Working with leading software vendors to increase threading capability.
  • Integration of multi-core technology across all server products.
