Intel Corporation today announced the expansion of the Intel Xeon processor portfolio with new products designed to address a broad and emerging set of server requirements and provide IT managers with additional choice and flexibility. To offer a range of energy-efficient and affordable solutions for server and workstation customers, the company introduced twenty-eight processors across three product families: eight processors from the Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 product family and nine processors from the Intel Xeon processor E5-2400 product family designed to complement the already available Xeon processor E5-2600 product family. The company also announced availability of eleven processors from the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v2 product family.
“Companies today are increasingly dependent upon Information Technology to deliver innovative products and services to customers,” said Boyd Davis, Vice-President and General Manager of the Datacenter Infrastructure Group at Intel. The Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 product family offers the performance and energy efficiency benefits of the record-breaking Intel Xeon processor E5 family to allow higher density designs than available with previous 4-socket systems. With up to 32 cores and 48 DIMMs per system, these processors are ideal for a wide range of technical compute applications, such as scientific research and financial services.
Intel's new range of CPUs
These processors support all features of the Intel Xeon processor E5 family, such as Intel Advanced Vector Extensions, Intel Integrated I/O, PCI Express 3.0, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 and Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT). For traditional 2-socket server customers facing increasing data demands and a need to scale up for additional performance, the new 4-socket servers will open up new opportunities to realize significant total cost of ownership advantages.
The Intel Xeon processor E5-4600 product family delivers up to 88 percent higher performance than a comparable Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family-based server. Intel also introduced the Xeon processor E3-1200 v2 product family as an entry-level server and workstation processor based on Intel’s 22-nanometer (nm) process technology. Built for the unique demands of small business customers who require technology that lets them rapidly respond to market conditions and maintain a competitive advantage, these processors deliver up to 32 percent greater energy efficient performance and PCI Express 3.0 for higher I/O bandwidth, compared to the previous generation.
