  • 1 of 11

The DL580 Gen8 is HP’s most powerful server in the ProLiant line. HP says that it’s designed specifically to take on the IBM Power 750 and Oracle’s Sun server T5-4. Two tiers are offered -- basic and high performance. With basic, you get two processors, Intel EZ-4809 V2s at 1.9Ghz clock, which means a dozen cores. The high performance selection boosts capacity to four processors, Intel Xeon 4850 V2s (48 cores), or 4890 V2s (60 cores) clocked at 2.3 or 2.9ghz respectively. (Read the story version.)
