Intel Corporation has joined The Securities Technology Analysis Center (Stac) Benchmark Council and has entered into a multi-year lab agreement with Stac as an innovation sponsor. The agreement builds upon a benchmarking relationship that Intel established with Stac over a year ago. Intel has also made a multi-year commitment to provide the Manhattan-based Stac Lab with the latest Intel technologies.
This includes its just-announced 45-nanometer Intel Xeon processor 5400 series (Harpertown), which preliminary Stac testing has found to decrease power consumption by 20 per cent over a previous Xeon processor 5300 series (Clovertown) when supporting the same market data workload.
