Latest Processing Chips Being Used in Dedicated Servers

With the ever increasing need for more processing power, processor manufacturers always strive hard to develop newer processing chips that can handle more and more executions per second. Among the leading CPU manufacturers are Intel and AMD and they’ve always brought some of the best features and the latest innovations in the computing world. However, when it comes server computing, it seems that Intel is the most commonly used processing chip.

Dedicated server hosting providers like Server Mania, Hostgator and GoDaddy often offers Intel-based dedicated servers and as such, the latest processing chips being used in dedicated servers are almost always Intel Xeon processors.

Intel’s Xeon E7 v4

With intel’s latest release, the Xeon E7 v4, handling real-time analytics has become much better. In addition to that, it is the world’s largest memory capacity per socket amounting up to 3TB. Intel says that it has more powerful security and provides up to 70% increase in encryption performance per core. That means data can be encrypted without the need for consuming a large amount of power. This new processor boasts 24 cores, allowing it to handle more data per second compared to its predecessors.

Launched June 6, 2016, Intel’s highest end E7 v4 processor is the Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8890 v4. Priced at $7,174, this monstrous CPU boasts 24 cores and 48 threads with a base frequency of 2.2 GHz and a max turbo frequency of 3.4 GHz. Its cache is a massive 60MB, allowing the processor to handle more executions in a very fast speed.

Compared to IBM Power8, Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8890 v4 performs up to 1.4x better for as low as 50% of the system power and comes with 10x better performance per dollar claims Intel.

Choosing the CPU

If you are well versed in building desktop PCs, you’re probably confident that you can apply the same experience in choosing server CPUs. Well, you could use some of your knowledge, but relying entirely on it isn’t a good idea.

Server CPUs tend to be the powerhouses of the CPU world. They should be able to process tons of data within a short amount of time. Therefore, it is important to take the needs of your server into consideration when choosing for a server CPU.

The more cores your server CPU has, the better. You don’t need higher clocks; more cores are much better. For example, you get a six-core 3.3 GHz and a ten core 2.5 GHz, the latter will outperform the first one by a large margin.

CPU threading abilities is also an important thing to consider. Cores determine how many threads of information a CPU can handle but the threading technology the CPU uses will determine the exact data of how much data a CPU can process. A CPU with the hyper-threading ability is generally recommended.…

Relevance Of Technology

Technology is the way of achieving tasks by making use of technical processes, methods or knowledge. There are some important thing in a specific field.  Technology is the usage, modification, and awareness of tools, machines, methods, systems of organization to solve an issue and improve an already existing solution to an issue. It also means to accomplish an objective and handle an applied input or output and d a particular function.

It is all about the gathering of tools like machinery, procedures and arrangements. It has been observed that technologies affect humans and other animal species to adapt to the natural environments. This term is applicable to some particular areas like construction technology, medical technology, and information technology.


It has been seen that many people think that it is technology drives innovation but from the definitions above, this is not the case. It is the chance that defines technology and innovation and that allows innovation. You need a technology to develop a nice mousetrap but in case there are no mice, there is no chance to develop a nice one. In case you have many problems with mice then there is an existence of a chance to create a product by making use of technology.

One more example is that of consumer electronics companies. They have exceptional cutting edge technologies. Those that did not have success did not get a chance to make a good innovation by making use of the technology. Technology is considered to be an enabler whose aim is to make the immense improvement to our lives. It has to be utilized to make various innovations that are driven by chance.

Many companies list a technology as one of their competitive benefits. Technology moves along two ways. One is the revolutionary path and other is an evolutionary path. A revolutionary technology creates new industries and makes solutions to the various issues that were not possible in the past. The good example for this is the semiconductor technology.

Evolutionary technology is the one that is created on the fundamental revolutionary technology. The alteration is simple for a competitor to suit. Technology can be of relevance in the short duration but not relevant for the long duration. Nowadays technologies have a tendency to become commodity based. The technology may seem like a product to a developer. For example, Bose utilizes a signal processing technology to make products that suit the needs of the market and so technology and what it allows them is of great relevance to them.…
