Leading global chipset maker Intel Corp launched its newest server chip, Xeon E5.

Aimed at addressing the growing data centre needs and increase in global data centre IP traffic, this eight-bit processor will power the next generation of storage and communication systems. The processor's launch was announced globally on Wednesday. Compared to the previous generation of Intel's processors, the Xeon processor delivers up to 80 per cent improved performance, an improvement in input-output processing (that is the speed at which data moves in and out of the processor) by a factor of three, and over 50 per cent gain in energy efficiency.
