NextComputing has added the Intel Xeon E5-2600 V2 processor product family to its range of portable workstations, compact towers, and high-density rack-mount computers. Intel Xeon E5-2600 V2 processors offer up to 12 processor cores per CPU, allowing users to work faster and more efficiently. With support for up to two of these processors (24 cores or 48 threads), plus increased memory speeds of up to 1,866MHz, NextComputing's compact systems offer what the company says is the industry’s highest performance computing platforms in the smallest form-factors available.
