Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-4800 v2 Product Family

Four-socket business processing performance benchmarks

Intel® Xeon® processor

Make business intelligence your competitive advantage. The Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8800/4800/2800 v2 product families—unlock the potential of your data. It’s incredible what you can find when you know where to look. 

Enterprise resource planning performance using SAP SD* two-tier Internet configuration

The Sales and Distribution (SD) Benchmark covers a sell-from-stock scenario, which includes the creation of a customer order with five line items and the corresponding delivery with subsequent goods movement and invoicing. The results reported measure the completion of one SAP Application Performance Standard (SAPS) unit of measurement, which is 20 fully business processed order line items per hour and reported as a given number of benchmark users supported.

1. Up to 80% leadership performance on Xeon E7 v2 over IBM Power* 7+  at ~80% lower TCO claim based on Intel estimated SPECint*_rate_base2006 results and pricing of comparable 4-socket rack server using Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4890 v2 (37.5M Cache, 2.8 GHz,  15-Cores) to IBM POWER*750 using POWER7+ (80M Cache, 4.0 GHz, 8-Cores) as of December 2013. a. SPECint_rate_base2006 benchmark results: i. 4-chip IBM POWER7+ (1230 baseline score) source: http://www.spec.org/cpu2006/results/res2013q3/cpu2006-20130805-26129.html ii. 4-chip Intel Xeon processor E7-4890 v2 (2280 baseline score estimated) b. Estimated street pricing: i. 4-chip Intel Xeon Processor E7-4890 v2 platform  Intel estimated price of $51,237 with 4x Intel Xeon processor E7-4890 v2 processors, 256 GB memory, 2 HDDs.  ii. 4-chip IBM Power 750 Express Pricing of $177,290: 4 x 4.0 GHz POWER7+* processors, 256GB memory, 2 HDDs.   Source: IBM United States Prices 113-026, dated February 5, 2013 (hardware list prices). http://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/rep_ca/6/897/ENUS113-026/ENUS-113-026-LIST_PRICES_2013_02_05.PDF.  c. Up to 80% better 4-year TCO through lower software costs claim based on Intel internal total cost of ownership tool normalizing integer throughput performance between the two options. i. Calculations includes analysis based on performance, power, cooling, electricity rates, operating system and annual support/license costs on Red Hat* Enterprise LINUX for POWER* or 32-/64-bit x86 at https://www.redhat.com/apps/store/server/ plus estimated server costs. ii. Assumptions include 42U racks, $0.10 per kWh, cooling costs 2x average server power consumption costs, Alinean* assumptions of $500 per server maintenance and $30 per server networking costs, average real estate cost per year from VMware* planning tool at $310 per sq. foot * 10 sq. feet per rack divided by the number of servers per rack, 60% CPU utilization and PUE of 2.0. 

2. Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.com/performance.

3. Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.

4. Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

5. Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2 and SSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel® microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product user and reference guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice. Notice revision #20110804
