by July 13, 2018 0 comments

Intel announced the release of the new Intel Xeon E-2100 processor. The Intel Xeon E processor, the successor to the Intel Xeon E3 processor, is designed for entry-level workstations that provide creators with powerful, single-threaded application performance with a platform optimized for reliability and affordability.

“With today’s workloads, ageing workstations impede productivity, collaboration and creativity. The release of the Intel Xeon E processor is intended to deliver the essential performance and visuals for entry workstations, as well as optimizing the innovative form factors, designs and diverse requirements of our customers.”

  • Jennifer Huffstetler, vice president and general manager, data centre product management, Intel Corporation

Why It’s Important: The new Intel Xeon E processor delivers a powerful combination of performance and capabilities for entry-level workstations. They are architected and crafted for the demands of creative professionals. Compared with its predecessor, the new processor offers higher max turbo frequency, faster DRAM speeds, enhanced I/O, and advanced security and reliability features. Are these processors available with Intel® UHD graphics supported by a broad set of workstation applications?

How It’s Different: The Intel Xeon E processor a 6-core processor for entry workstations. 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 key feature to maximize data integrity, to help improve system stability and to reduce the possibility of silent data corruption.

Where it Works: Workstations powered by Intel Xeon processors meet the highly diversified demands of creative professionals in fields such as architecture, engineering, media and entertainment and financial services.

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 breakthrough dual-socket performance for the most advanced workstation professionals), and Intel Xeon W processors (targeting mainstream workstations with a combination of performance, enhanced memory capabilities and hardware-enhanced security and reliability features).

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 enhanced 4K media decoding and encoding
  • Up to 30 lanes of PCIe for graphics, storage and network expandability
  • Support for USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt technology
  • Support for Intel Optane memory for a faster, smoother, and amazingly responsive computing experience
  • Advanced hardware-enhanced security with Intel vPro technology and enhanced Intel Software Guard Extensions Support for Intel Ethernet and Intel Wireless-AC networking

When/Where You Can Get It: OEMs will begin shipping Intel Xeon E-2100 processor-based systems today.
