Intel® Xeon Processor E56XX

Recommended Posts


I would invest in a new server with intel ® Xeon ® Processor E5620 (12M Cache, 2.40 GHz, 5.86 GT / s QPI Intel ®)


Retrospect architecture can handle quad-cores ?


Retrospect is able to exploit the new instructions AES ?


Thank you for your answers

We have a Retrospect server running with the E5620's predecessor, the E5520, in a dual socket setup.


We also do use AES with Retrospect. However the current engine doesn't use all the available resources. When running a couple of execution units, it seems it only uses two cores or so.


My suggestion is, at this time, to get the fastest running dual- or quadcore cpu. In this case I mean raw GHz. So the Xeon E5520 will probably be outclassed by a faster running i7.


I'm not sure what the future brings though. Maybe the next major release will be better able to use more resources...
