Intel unveils processor for entry-level workstations

Single-threaded applications performance is delivered for entry-level workstations with the Intel Xeon E-2100 processor.

The processor is the successor to the Intel Xeon E3 processor and designed for entry-level workstations to meet the demands of today’s productivity, collaboration and creativity loads. The release of the Intel Xeon E processor is intended to deliver the essential performance and visuals for entry workstations, as well as optimising the innovative form factors, designs and diverse requirements of our customers,”
said Jennifer Huffstetler, vice president and general manager, data centre product management, Intel.

The Intel Xeon E processor offers higher max turbo frequency, faster DRAM speeds, enhanced I/O, and advanced security and reliability features, compared to earlier versions. The processor is available with Intel UHD Graphics 630 supporting 4K UHD with built-in HEVC 10-bit hardware acceleration delivers enhanced 4K media decoding and encoding, supported by a broad set of workstation application.

The six-core processor combines two additional cores and higher single-core turbo frequency for increases in performance across workstation benchmarks, compared with previous four-core entry workstation processors. The processor offers error correcting code (ECC) memory, to maximise data integrity and help improve system stability and reduce the possibility of silent data corruption.

The Intel Xeon E processor joins Intel’s portfolio of workstation-optimised processors, which also includes Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Xeon W processors.

There are up to 40 lanes of PCIe for graphics, storage and network expandability and support for USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt technologies. There is also support for Intel Optane and advanced hardware-enhanced security with Intel vPro technology and enhanced Intel Software Guard Extensions Support for Intel Ethernet and Intel Wireless-AC networking.
