Icecat the open catalog

Add to compare
The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® X5355
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
The Central Processing Unit (CPU) or (micro) processor is the part of a computer where most calculations take place. In terms of computing power, the processor is the most important element of a computer system, so the performance of a computer is highly dependant on the performance of the processor. For quite some time the performance of a processor has been determined by the number of MHz the clock speed was, but nowadays clock speed doesn\'t have so much to do with the speed of the processor anymore. One of the best ways to compare different kinds of processors, is to look up benchmarks on the internet. Please be careful to buy a processor that is compatible with your motherboard, i.e. fits in the right socket.
Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by Intel: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

The official marketing text of Intel Quad-Core ® Xeon® X5355 as supplied by the manufacturer
Be the first to experience the breakthrough performance of Quad-Core technology.

The Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5300 series is the industry's first quad-core processor for dual processor (DP) servers and workstations. Built on Intel® Core™ microarchitecture, these processors deliver industry leading performance and virtualization, and offer new levels of energy efficiency to help reduce cooling and density challenges.

The Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series is Intel's premier solution for the growing computing and data needs of many business-critical applications, and provides the most headroom (threads and performance) for virtualized server environments of any dual processor standard high volume server platform. Combined with the Intel® 5000 chipset family and Fully Buffered DIMM (FBDIMM) memory technology, the new Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor 5300 series-based platforms are expected to deliver breakthrough performance with better power efficiency, delivering up to 1.5 times the performance compared to leading Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® processor 5100 series in the same power envelope and up to 2.5 times the performance compared to the best published results of AMD Opteron Model 2220.

Processor family*
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Intel® Xeon®
Processor frequency*
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.
2.66 GHz
Processor socket*
Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
Socket J (LGA 771)
Component for*
What this product is used as a part of (component for).
Processor lithography*
The process which is performed by the processor e.g. CPU (Central Processing Unit).
65 nm
Plastic or metal shell/container for components.
Processor front side bus
A computer communications interface used to connect the processor to the rest of the computer, except the cache (and possibly other processors).
1333 MHz
Processor model *
The model number for the processor in a computer.
Processor cache
8 MB
Processor cache type
Processor ARK ID
Processor special features
Conflict Free processor
"Conflict free" means "DRC conflict free", which is defined by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission rules to mean products that do not contain conflict minerals (tin, tantalum, tungsten and/or gold) that directly or indirectly finance or benefit armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) or adjoining countries.
