Did you know that the new PowerEdge R920 server with its Intel Xeon E7 v2 CPUs, holds four key world record benchmark results amongst the major enterprise server vendors?

The PG Solutions Performance Analysis team ran a series of server industry-standard benchmarks on this new processor platform and then compared the results to those from the previous 11th generation PowerEdge R910.

In summary, our testing showed that the R920 improves upon the R910 on every compute and memory intensive performance metric tested; the advantage ranges from 76% to an astounding 367%
