Intel recently added a new set of processors to the Intel® Xeon Scalable platform lineup. The launch of these new processors may potentially be relevant to the majority of Intel’s mainstream Xeon Scalable customers across cloud, network, and edge environments since they’re optimized for performance and performance-per-dollar. Hundreds of systems that feature the new 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors are available now from many of Intel’s leading OEMs and ODMs. And more are expected to begin offering the new processors in the coming weeks.
More specifically, improvements for the new line of processors include the addition of more cores, increased cache sizes, and higher processor frequency. The new products are designed for both dual and single socket mainstream and entry-level server systems. And they’re helpful for users with workloads that need a high capacity per server, like those using virtualized clouds, hyperconverged infrastructure, and network function virtualization.
If you’re interested in learning more about the new 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors or making use of them for your operations, here’s a rundown of some of the key features and capabilities.
Frequencies for high-performance usages
The new Intel Xeon Gold 6200 processors can deliver processor frequencies of up to 4.5 GHz. They use Intel Turbo Boost Technology and offer up to 33 percent more processor cache. Ultimately, this gives users access to breakthrough performance for workloads that require especially high frequencies.
Performance for mainstream usages
The new processors in Intel’s Xeon Gold 6200R and 5200R lines can deliver built-in value using a combination of higher base and Intel Turbo Boost Technology frequencies. These processors also include an increased processor cache.
Value and capability for entry-level, edge, networking and IoT usages
The new Intel Xeon Gold 6200U, Silver 4200R, Silver 4210T and Bronze 3200R processors are perfect for use with single-socket entry-level servers. They also deliver added value when used with edge computing, networking, and the Internet of things (IoT) environments.
