Silicon Mechanics, Inc. announces that it now offers servers based on the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2400

The Intel Xeon Processor E5-2400 product family is an affordable dual-socket server option, enabling higher system densities and easier management as compared to single-socket solutions.


Silicon Mechanics has utilized the Intel Xeon Processor E5-2400 family to create three affordable 1U rackmount servers that combine powerful performance with flexible features. The Rackform iServ R304.v3, Rackform iServ R308.v3, and Rackform iServ R309.v3 are all dual-processor servers, built on Sandy Bridge architecture and the Intel C606 chipset (formerly named Patsburg). All come standard with 6 DDR3 DIMM sockets, integrated IPMI with KVM over LAN, 2 Gigabit Ethernet adapters, and an 80 PLUS Gold or Platinum Certified power supply option.

“Our entry-level servers are very popular because they offer great performance and flexibility at a moderate price. With our new Intel Xeon Processor E5-2400-based platforms, customers can get better performance than with previous generations, and stay in the same price band,” said Ken Hostetler, Director of Product Management.

“The Intel Xeon Processor E5-2400 product family delivers a strong balance of energy-efficient performance and affordability,” said Dylan Larson, Director of Xeon Product Marketing at Intel. “Servers that feature these processors are a great option for companies looking to get the most performance, memory, and I/O options for their money.”
