In this course you learn how to start building a virtual machine setup and you prepare virtual hardware components for utilization. The Nehalem and Shanghai based Core 2 and Core i processors are both depicted. The Nehalem is a significantly improved Sandy Bridge (design based on Intel 45 nm process technology) processor. Previous servers utilizing the 32 nm and 22 nm Intel Atom technologies do not have the same type of silicon (especially power consuming parts). The new 22 nm process delivers about 18% lower power consumption versus the previous core architecture, 16% lower power consumption versus the Nehalem (45 nm) platform, 12% lower power consumption versus the previous core architecture (32 nm).
Here again the core speed was not the limiting factor on the Intel Tiger Hill driver side. Figure 8 shows the speed difference between two dual quad-core processor systems versus a single core system. The difference in speed for four threads is just about 5x, while on the three thread cases the difference in speed is about 8x.
The results are quite satisfying (see Figure 5). On Windows Vista computers the Intel Tiger Hill hardware drivers are unable to control high-end logical processes due to a fundamental design mistake and therefore the performance is reduced to about 2%. In case of the MS Windows 10 operating system on an upgraded computer system idle CPU performance is reduced to 10% and CPU load during calculation by one of the desktop applications crashes with 80% CPU load. The virtualization is not affected. 7211a4ac4a
