Intel® Xeon® Processors LV and ULV

The Intel® Xeon® processor LV and Intel® Xeon® processor ULV are members of Intel’s growing product line of multi-core processors. Each dual-core processor combines the benefits of two high-performance execution cores with intelligent power management features to deliver significantly greater performance-per-watt over previous single-core Intel Xeon processor-based platforms. The dual-core/dual-processor capabilities are ideal for a wide range of low-power communications and embedded applications.

Product highlights
  • Two complete execution cores in one processor package provide advancements in simultaneous computing such as multi-threaded applications and multi-tasking environments. Dual-core processing efficiently delivers performance while balancing power requirements
  • High-performance front-side bus (FSB) provides dual-processor support for demanding high-performance, volume applications. Combined with dual-core processing, this supports up to four simultaneous threads on the system
  • Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® technology allows a system to dynamically adjust processor voltage and core frequency, decreasing average power consumption and average heat production
  • Intel® Smart Cache Design allows two execution cores to share 2 MB of L2 cache, reducing FSB traffic and enhancing system responsiveness
  • Intel® Advanced Thermal Manager supports new digital temperature sensors and thermal monitors on each execution core to enhance thermal monitoring accuracy
  • Enhanced 36-bit memory addressing supports up to 16 GB of DDR2 memory, when paired with the Intel® E7520 chipset
