Hyper-V to support Intel Xeon 7400 6-core boxes

The new Intel Xeon 7400 will have six cores (up to 16 MB L3 cache) and will be socket compatible with Xeon 7300 boards which will allow for simple upgrades with little downtime. Intel delivers higher virtualization performance for consolidation and data demanding applications offering more cores, cache and larger memory footprints.

Hyper-V also increases the number of logical processors and virtual machines that are running on a Windows Server 2008-based computer through this update package 956710 and includes the following improvements:

  • The update package increases the limitation on the number of logical processors to 24 (6x4). The previous limitation was 16.
  • The update package increases the number of Hyper-V virtual machines that you can run per server to 192. The previous limitation was 128.
