With the RECT™ 23-series, the RECT™ shop now offers two systems for digital production that easily match the very latest performance standards while creating new scope for choice thanks to their favourable price. The unrivalled price-performance ratio of the AMD CPUs simply frees up scope for the overall configuration and gives you greater freedom to optimise the performance of the other components (such as RAM, storage and graphics).

Greater computing performance combined with lower power consumption – typical of the latest developments in the Intel processor families. And this is true of the new “Kaby Lake Xeon” processors, which deliver 200 MHz higher clock speeds while generating almost 8 watts less in terms of TDP. In other words, significantly improved energy efficiency coupled with a general increase in performance. What is more, DDR4 memory at 2400 MHz (PC4-19200) is also now supported, which translates into even greater performance gains.
The new Intel® Xeon® E3-1200 v6 CPUs are available for all existing 64-series servers in the RECT™ Shop as the new “Kaby Lakes” still use the established 1151 CPU socket and the Intel® C232 chipset featured in the RECT™ 64-series. This combines excellent expansion options and I/O features (PCI Express® 3.0 with up to 8 lanes, 6x S-ATA 6 Gb/s with RAID support, USB 3.0 etc.) with innovative technology (Intel® “VT-d” Directed I/O Virtualization Technology, Intel® Rapid Storage Technology for companies, Trusted Execution Technology).
The RECT™ 64-series servers with new processors and faster memory have thus been given a boost in terms of computing performance with slightly lower power consumption.
All RECT® 64-series systems can be upgraded
The “Kaby Lake” performance boost can be extended to existing RECT™ 64-series systems. A processor replacement and a BIOS update are all that’s needed. But a word of caution: do not attempt to update the BIOS without proper instruction and advice from our RECT™ professionals. Talk to your personal customer adviser about any forthcoming upgrade.

Increased flexibility and an ever improving level of automation: The extended RECT™ 85 series features significant gains in performance and energy efficience, and also when it comes to virtualization and security.
Intel® Broadwell-EP Processors for Dual-Socket-Systems
A serious performance boost for the well-established RECT™ dual-socket platform is marked by the fourth generation of Core-based server CPUs by Intel. Retaining the LGA2011-3 socket, the benchmarks experience an average progression of 23 to 27 percent. The increased number of processor cores is a factor to be stated at this point. Starting with the Xeon E5-2609 v4, the new models usually offer two or four additional cores compared to their respective predecessors from the third generation.
Beyond that, Intel® has made improvements with the architecture. This results in noticeable enhancements concerning various fields. These enhancements include bigger translation lookaside buffers (TLB) and more registers for out-of-order execution, an optimized branch predictor to cut down on unnecessary memory operations, and lesser latencies during integer division. Especially scalar multiplication experiences a significant gain, as it will be completed within one micro-operation now (previously: two micro-operations). This is crucial not only for cryptographic algorithms, where former benchmarks can be beaten by 70 percent. This micro-operational speed-up subsequently boosts the instructions per clock (IPC), granting a higher clock rate during single-threaded operations.
Resource Director Technology (Intel® RDT) is a key feature set to enhance the capabilities of orchestration and virtualization management. The last-level-cache (LLC) is being partitioned, and the parts are given varying priorities to max out the transfer rate. New hardware power states allow for the operating system to make quicker decisions for the right P-state (frequency and voltage).
When it comes to AVX, the new processors offer another benefit we want to mention. They underclock only the respective core operating an AVX instruction while their predecessors were designed to underclock themselves completely. For instance, the Xeon E5-2699 v4 has 18 turbo steps at ist disposal in AVX mode, enabling it to double the base frequency of 1.8 GHz in each of its cores separately.
Transactional Memory (TSX) is active in all Broadwell-EP processors. This technology leads to drastic performance gains especially in databases.
Faster DDR4 Memory
In conjunction with the new processors, the enhanced RECT servers and workstations of the 85 series now offer a higher memory data rate. All systems can be equipped with DDR4-2400 modules (by both Samsung and Kingston, depending on the chosen configuration). When each of the four memory channels is provided with modules, the memory speed can be maxed out.

An already existing RECT™ system of the 85 series with E5-v3 processors can be easily equipped with E5-v4. To make Broadwell-EP processors work in a machine previously operated with Haswell-EP processors, a necessary BIOS update can be applied in no time. Please talk to your personal RECT™ customer adviser prior to the upgrade.

After gradually raising the maximum capacity per drive from 4 TB to 6 TB and then 8 TB, HGST has now introduced the first hard drive with 10 TB in the enterprise segment. Designed for 24/7 operation with 2.5 million hours MTBF, the He10 ranks the highest when it comes to reliability. The construction of the drive is based on its predecessors with 8 TB capacity, making it directly serviceable for most business applications and environments. The time-tested HelioSeal® technology of the third generation hermetically seals the HDD and replaces the air inside with helium. The less-dense atmosphere allows for an increased efficiency and therefore helps to shape IT both scalable and sustainable.
The new HGST Ultrastar® He10 drives with 7,200 RPM and 256 MB of cache are available in S-ATA (6 Gb/s) and SAS (12 Gb/s). In the RECT™ Shop you can now find them as options for all Servers, Storages and Workstations.
This service is available as an option for almost all of our RECT systems in the RECT shop. For individual configurations do not hesitate to talk to your personal contact about the possibilities you have for the RECT Smart Warranty .HDD Service.
Our new RECT 2Sockets (82-series) aim to max these features out and provide you with the wide range of all the new peak performances the Intel® Romley-EP platform has to offer. All in line with „Intelligent Power“, IT performance is being boosted at a high degree of energy efficiency: powerful intelligent.
Just have a look at the new RECT servers and workstations. Our sales consultants are eager to present you with the new 82-series.
