Superb Internet now has the new Dual Xeon Westmere servers in their dedicated server lineup. This is the latest addition to their dedicated servers product line for high-performance computing. For those in the dark on this new CPU, the Xeon Westmere processor (5600s) is Intel’s new 32nm chip that boasts increased performance and power flexibility to succeed their Nehalem series (5500s). With this new CPU, the hexa-core dedicated servers are introduced in a much more affordable price point.
From their website, Superb Internet offers the following Westmere servers (note, not all Westmere processors have 6 cores):
Dual Xeon E5620 Quad-Core 2.40Ghz, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 1000GB SATA HD
Dual Xeon X5650 Hexa-Core 2.66Ghz, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 1000GB SATA HD

As part of their launch special, Superb Internet is giving a free upgrade to 6GB DDR3 RAM for all their Hexa-Core servers which include X5650, X5660, X5670, and X5680 servers. Promo code is not needed as you can select this option on their order form. This means, you can combine this deal with another promotion.
Superb Internet brought back their best deal, buy one dedicated server and get one server free. On their Buy One Get One Free (BOGO) page, they list the dedicated servers that are eligible to receive a free server. Looking at the list, it looks like all their dedicated servers, including their clearance servers, are eligible to receive a free server. The only condition is that the free server you select has to be equal or lesser value of the server you will pay for. It looks like every clearance server can be used for the free server.
The following is a list of servers you can receive free:
- HP DL380 Dual Xeon 3.06 GHz
- HP DL380 Dual Xeon 2.8 GHz
- HP DL380 Xeon 2.8 GHz
- Dual Xeon 3.06Ghz
- Dual Xeon 2.8Ghz
- Pentium 4 3.0Ghz
- Pentium 4 2.66Ghz
- Pentium 4 2.4Ghz
I’m a huge fan of this offer… think of all the possibilities for using the second server. Load up a gaming server, finally backup your sites (You know we all like to put this off!), or just use it for your personal storage.
To order this deal, add the 2 servers you want into their shopping cart and once you get to the review page, enter promo code 7436 into the promotion field. You should see your price get updated. Order now>
