Ultimate performance, small footprint
Multi-Core Intel Xeon ProcessorsThe Dell Precision 490 is equipped with up to two Dual or Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® 5100 and 5300 series 64-bit processors for a total of up to eight execution cores in two sockets. Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors can deliver a substantial performance increase over Intel single-core processors for multi-threaded applications, multi-tasking environments or very demanding single-threaded applications. The new Intel Xeon 5100 and 5300 series features a new architecture, Intel Core micro-architecture, with a shorter pipeline, lower clock speeds and higher front side bus speeds designed to deliver higher performance levels than previous generation Intel Xeon processors. Multi-core processors allow your system to split tasks between separate processor cores so that they can share the load and get more done in less time. The cores can do more work per second, allowing you to run multiple or multi-threaded applications (DCC rendering and analysis applications) with noticeably quicker results.
