RapidSwitch Launches Latest Generation Intel CPUs for Hosting Customers


RapidSwitch, one of the UK's leading server hosting companies and part of iomart Group, has launched a new range of servers based on the Intel Haswell 4th Generation CPUs.

The new CPUs provide the biggest single generational gain in power efficiency in the history of x86 processors. Haswell are the fastest single socket processors in the market, offering 52% better performance per watt, and at 13 watts, the lowest-power Xeon ever. They also show significant performance improvements on graphics compared to the last generation chips.

RapidSwitch, which manages over 20,000 servers for a wide range of clients including Minecraft gamer hosting company Creeperhost and online publishing platform PageTiger, has the Intel E3-1230v3 CPU in stock, but can also provide any CPU in the new range.

Neil Christie, Commercial Director of RapidSwitch, said: "The combination of Intel's trusted brand with a new range of processors built for advanced speed and reliability means our customers will get the ultimate performance from their server hardware."

RapidSwitch was one of the first UK hosting companies to introduce 16 Core systems using Intel E5 Generation CPUs when they were first released and continues to push forward and bring clients the latest technology to power their hosting and cloud computing requirements.

The new range of servers can be ordered directly off the RapidSwitch website from our package configurator

I just want to say a big thank you to your team. I dropped off the server this morning and no sooner had I turned on my computer back at work, everything was plumbed in and working. Recently I have been so dismayed with the quality of service from providers, this is such a breath of fresh air. Keep up the good work!
