Intel today announced the release of the new Intel Xeon E-2100 processor, the successor to the Intel Xeon E3 processor, designed for entry-level workstations that provide creators with powerful, single-threaded application performance.
The Intel Xeon E-2100 processor is a 6-core processor. The combination of two additional cores and higher single-core turbo frequency delivers increases in performance across workstation benchmarks as compared with previous 4-core entry workstation processors. The processor offers Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory, a feature to maximize data integrity, to help improve system stability and to reduce the possibility of silent data corruption.
What It Features:
- Up to 6 cores and 12 threads
- Up to 4.7 GHz using Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
- Up to 64GB DDR4 ECC 2666MHz
- Available with Intel UHD Graphics 630 supporting 4K UHD with built-in HEVC 10-bit hardware acceleration delivers 4K media decoding and encoding
- Up to 40 lanes of PCIe for graphics, storage and network expandability
- Support for USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt technology
- Support for Intel Optane memory
- Hardware-enhanced security with Intel vPro technology and Intel Software Guard Extensions Support for Intel Ethernet and Intel Wireless-AC networking
The new processors mirror the current Coffee Lake Core processors on the market but require motherboards with a specalized workstation C246 chipset.
All the processors are built on Intel's 14++ process technology. At this time Intel is not disclosing all-core turbo frequencies or AVX2 frequencies. TDP will mostly be 71-80W, except for the high-end six-core processor which will be at 95W.
OEMs will begin shipping Intel Xeon E-2100 processor-based systems today.
The Intel Xeon E processor is the latest addition to Intel's portfolio of workstation-optimized processors, which also includes Intel Xeon Scalable processors (delivering dual-socket performance for the most advanced workstation professionals), and Intel Xeon W processors (targeting mainstream workstations).
