In 2006, it would have taken 32 servers to showcase this…

Three short years ago, this would have taken 32 Xeon 5100 (Woodcrest) servers, accounting for 64U of rack space… this pic is from the upcoming Xeon MP (Beckton) platform with Nehalem-EX processors that many of you have seen at IDF 2009.  This server only takes 3U of rack space… less than 5% of the space of what it could replace.

Sometimes you see a screenshot and it just makes your jaw drop…Just to give a comparison of CPU density… here&aposs a diagram showing the comparison of 3 year old technology compared to the upcoming Nehalem-EX.What&aposs even more amazing, is that some design wins are based on a 1U server with the same cpu footprint – that&aposs AWESOME!What are your thoughts on these upcoming multi-core technology improvements?
