Based on the Haswell microarchitecture, the Intel processor families bring a set of performance boosting features. In addition to the usual boost in frequencies and core numbers, the Intel Xeon is the first in the industry to support the DDR4 memory technology. Moreover, the processors include encryption performance overhead reduction features, and technologies improving run time and migration VM integrity.
On the previous server platforms from Intel, the maximum supported memory frequency has always been automatically downgraded by design when more DIMMs were being added on a server motherboard. As this trade-off between performance and capacity represents a dilemma to many memory-hungry server applications, GIGABYTE offers a unique solution.
