Uses the E5-4600 CPU family

While HP hasn’t formally announced a set of new server blades, there are some models arriving in the market.

The blade, dubbed the HP ProLiant BL660c Gen 8, uses Intel’s E5-4600, CPUs for four CPU systems that the chip company was showing off at Computex.

Even though there’s as yet no information on the HP site, the company got very excited about the system and has posted SPEC results here. The SPEC test relates to the 2.70GHz, Xeon E5-650 microprocessor.

As far as we are aware, this is HP’s first foray into the E5-4600 family. We expect more to come.
