Monthly Savings in utility and SW support costs determined by comparing the incremental costs associated with not refreshing 50 older
single-core servers purchased back in 2005 vs. refreshing on an approximate 15:1 ratio with a Xeon 5680-based servers in Year 1.
Warranty cost assumes $750/year per server if purchased after the initial OEM 3-year warranty period has expired. Actual total cost is
$10,075. Source: Consolidation ratio calculated using the Xeon Server Refresh Savings Estimator (www.intel.com/go/xeonestimator)

5 Month Single Core Refresh ROI Claim
•
5 month ROI claim estimated based on comparison between 2S Single Core Intel® Xeon® 3.80 with
2M L2 Cache and 2S Intel® Xeon® X5680 based servers. Calculation includes analysis based on
performance, power, cooling, electricity rates, operating system annual license costs and estimated
server costs. This assumes 8kW racks, $0.10 per kWh, cooling costs are 2x the server power
consumption costs, operating system license cost of $900/year per server, per server cost of $7200
based on estimated list prices and estimated server utilization rates. All dollar figures are
approximate. Performance and power comparisons are based on measured server side java
benchmark results (Intel Corporation Feb 2010). Platform power was measured during the steady
state window of the benchmark run and at idle. Performance gain compared to baseline was 15x.
– Baseline platform: Intel server platform with two 64-bit Intel Xeon Processor 3.80Ghz with 2M L2 Cache,
800 FSB, 8x1GB DDR2-400 memory, 1 hard drive, 1 power supply, Microsoft* Windows* Server 2003
Ent. SP1, Oracle* JRockit* build P27.4.0-windows-x86_64 run with 2 JVM instances
– New platform: Intel server platform with two Intel® Xeon® Processor X5680 (12M Cache, 3.33 GHz,
6.40 GT/s Intel® QPI), 24 GB memory (6x4GB DDR3-1333), 1 SATA 10krpm 150GB hard drive, 1 800w
