Intel announced the release of Xeon D-2100 processor. The company calls the new "system-on-chip" (SoC) development, emphasizing that engineers have been able to optimize 14 nm technology and create a compact and powerful processor for deploying reliable and fast server systems.
The new Xeon is primarily designed to ensure the stable and efficient operation of Internet services, cloud applications and corporate networks.
Various modifications of the new model have from 4 to 18 cores and cost from $ 213 to $ 2407. There are two computational flows on each core. The base frequency of the processor is up to 2.3 GHz, but with the help of Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology it can be accelerated to 3.0 GHz.
Xeon D-2100 supports up to 32 lines of PCI Express 3.0, up to 512 GB of DDR4-2666 ECC memory and four Ethernet connections at 10 Gb / s.
The TDP index characterizing heat sink requirements, is quite modest for a powerful processor and makes from 60 to 110 W.
Intel believes the company seeks to help develop the capabilities of data centers by reduction of the requirements for equipment costs and maintenance.
An optimized form factor, balanced power consumption and power make Xeon D-2100 a great tool for a huge number of applications.
In particular, the new processor will help providers build and upgrade networks, accelerate the transition to 5G. Companies will be able to build small corporate network services, such as VPN and firewall.
The processor will be released with built-in patches against the vulnerabilities of Meltdown and Specter.
