Dell is launching a new range of enterprise servers equipped with Intel’s latest dual-core chips, to improve both power consumption and performance.
The new PowerEdge servers use Intel’s updated dual-core Xeon chips. Dell previously shipped servers equipped with the Paxville version of the Xeon platform.
The new PowerEdge 1950, 2900 and 2950 servers are powered by the improved Dempsey version of the Xeon processor family. The Dempsey alternative reduces power consumption and delivers increased processing, when compared to Paxville.
In addition to the new chips, the latest range of Dell servers also have additional productivity features.
For instance, an LCD screen on the front of the new servers can be programmed to display status messages or error warnings to ease the management of the platforms.
Dell has also promised better integration of the servers’ management software with third party application software.
