Intel being the leader in Chip manufacturing industry has recently announced it’s two brand new Cascade Lake and Xeon E-2100 processors lineups.
Where Cascade Lake is expected to deliver high-end performance and, Xeon E-2100 processors are for entry-level servers.
Talking about the availability, the Cascade Lake processors are due for release in the first half of next year whereas the Intel Xeon E-2100 processors are already available since 05 Nov 2018.
Lisa Spelman, Intel vice president, and general manager of Intel Xeon products and data center marketing had the following to say about the new products:
“We remain highly focused on delivering a wide range of workload-optimized solutions that best meet our customers’ system requirements. The addition of Cascade Lake advanced performance CPUs and Xeon E-2100 processors to our Intel Xeon processor lineup once again demonstrates our commitment to delivering performance-optimized solutions to a wide range of customers.”
Specifically talking about the Cascade Lake processor then it’s a very scalable processor which is aimed at high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, and infrastructure-as-a-service workloads.
It also includes 48 cores per CPU and 12 DDR4 memory channels per socket, according to the company.
In the Famous Linpack benchmark tests, its performance was 1.21 times better than that of the Intel Xeon Scalable 8180 processor and 3.4 times better than that of the AMD EPYC 7601.
Whereas talking about the Intel Xeon E-2100 series, these processors are aimed at small to medium-sized businesses and cloud service providers.
They offer hardware-based features which provide additional security for data and applications.
Intel also said that the new lineup is also capable of supporting heavy workloads suitable for entry-level servers.
