The new IBM® Flex System® X6 Compute Node portfolio includes the two-socket x280 X6, the four-socket x480 X6 and the industry’s first eight-socket blade server using Intel® Xeon® processors1—the x880 X6. Featuring exclusive IBM X-Architecture® innovations and the latest Xeon E7 v2 processors, applications can run up to 100 percent faster than a previous generation four-socket system using the x480 X6 and up to 300 percent faster using the x880 X62.
