Intel has expanded its Xeon processors by announcing Cascade Lake advanced performance processor targeting H1 2019 launch and the currently available Xeon E-2100 processor for entry-level servers.
“The addition of Cascade Lake advanced performance CPUs and Xeon E-2100 processors to Intel Xeon processors demonstrates our commitment to delivering performance-optimized solutions to a wide range of customers,” Lisa Spelman, Intel vice president and general manager of Intel Xeon products and data center marketing, said.
Intel aims to target high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) markets with the launch of Cascade Lake advanced performance processors.
# The optimized processor delivers up to 48 cores per CPU and 12 DDR4 memory channels per socket
# Linpack up to 1.21x versus Intel Xeon Scalable 8180 processor and 3.4×2 versus AMD EPYC 7601
# Stream Triad up to 1.83x versus Intel Scalable 8180 processor and 1.3×2 versus AMD EPYC 7601
# AI/Deep Learning Inference up to 17x images-per-second2 versus Intel Xeon Platinum processor at launch.
Intel SGX on the Intel Xeon E-2100 processor delivers hardware-based security and manageability features to secure customer data and applications. This feature allows new entry-level servers featuring an Intel Xeon E-2100 processor to provide an additional layer of hardware-enhanced security measures.
The Xeon E-2100 processor is targeted at small- and medium-size businesses and cloud service providers. The processor supports workloads suitable for entry-level servers, but also has applicability across all computing segments requiring enhanced data protections for the most sensitive workloads.
Small businesses deploying Intel Xeon E-2100 processor-based servers will benefit from the processor’s enhanced performance and data security. They support the file-sharing, storage and backup, virtualization, and employee productivity solutions.
