The SPECpower_ssj ® 2008 benchmark is the first industry standard measure for comparing energy efficiency among server products (*3). The benchmark is determined by measuring server system performance versus server energy use.

The Express5800/GT110f-S is a 1-socket ultra-compact tower server which delivers essential server features along with outstanding performance. The GT110f-S is designed for branch and remote offices, as well as stores and factories running file/print, collaboration, and infrastructure applications.

With this breakthrough, NEC has demonstrated a solution that reduces the operational cost of server systems through high energy efficiency without compromising performance. NEC’s advanced cooling design and low power-consumption technologies address the need for energy conservation that has become increasingly important to customers.

The benchmark result summary and test system are as follows:
