ICC Retains Title as Proprietor of World’s Fastest 1U Server with Updated Product Line

ICC Updates Vega Financial Servers with Latest Intel Broadwell-E Microarchitecture


NORTHBROOK, Illinois – August 2, 2016. International Computer Concepts (ICC), a leading systems integrator of enterprise-level computing solutions, today announced its update of the ICC Vega™ line of high-frequency trading servers with the latest Broadwell-E microarchitecture from Intel®. After extensive testing, the Vega™ servers featuring overclocked Intel® Core™ i7 processors are ready to ship to customers.


The flagship processor of the Broadwell-E line, the Intel® Core™ i7 6950X, features two extra cores beyond what the Haswell-E delivered for a total of 10 cores. Cache has also been expanded with this processor, bringing it up by 5MB for a total of 25MB of L3 cache. The Turbo Max 3.0 feature is purported to improve clock speed regulation by up to 15%.


“The fourth generation of ICC Vega™ servers will take advantage of the many innovations that the Broadwell-E microarchitecture has over its predecessor, Haswell-E, and ICC is glad to pass these benefits on to its customers,” noted ICC’s Director of Development Alexey Stolyar. “With overclocked speeds of up to 4.4 GHz on the Broadwell-E architecture, that would be an equivalent of up to 4.7 GHz in Haswell-E terms.”


The ICC overclocked servers utilizing the latest Broadwell-E microarchitecture include:
