“By providing servers with the D-1540 at our data center facilities, we are able to provide a higher level of value to our clients through our additional services and support.

Server Mania, an industry-leading dedicated and cloud hosting provider, has announced a new product line based on the Intel Xeon D-1500 series processor family, which provides the processing power of the 14nm Broadwell architecture and is ideal for a variety of workloads such as dynamic web serving, dedicated web hosting, warm storage, and network routing.

The Xeon D-1500 series represents Intel’s first Xeon-based System on a Chip, and includes integrated I/O circuitry and networking.

Server Mania customers can buy dedicated servers based on the 8-core Intel Xeon D-1540 processor. The base server configuration includes 32GB RAM, and one 1 TB SATA drive or one 120 GB solid-state drive. Customers can upgrade their storage at any time and add memory to a maximum of 128GB. Customers can also select a chassis model with four hard drive bays.

The Xeon D-1540 draws 45W of power, and has a base speed of 2.0GHz, all core turbo speed of 2.5GHz, and one core turbo speed of 2.6GHz.

Benchmark testing shows massive performance gains compared to the 8-core Intel Atom C2750 processor. The Intel Xeon D-1540 performed 78% better on the STREAM OpenMP benchmark for memory bandwidth, and 163% better on the SPEC CPU 2006 which measures intensive compute capabilities. In a test of its dynamic web serving capabilities, Xeon D-1500 series processors performed 240% better than the Intel Atom C2750, meaning more users can be served simultaneously without performance degradation.

“Compared to some of our legacy, single-core processors, the E3-1240v3 and E5-1600 series, switching to Intel Xeon D-1540 processors can provide huge performance gains,” said Chris Niedojadlo, COO of ServerMania. “By providing servers with the D-1540 at our data center facilities, we are able to provide a higher level of value to our clients through our additional services and support.”
