Dell Precision T5600: Two Eight-Core CPUs In A Workstation


Intel recently launched its Ivy Bridge-EP-based Xeon E5-2600 v2 CPUs. However, the beefy eight-core Xeon E5-2687Ws still sit atop Dell's workstation hierarchy. We got our hands on the handsome Precision T5600 and ran it through our benchmark battery.
