Intel expands Xeon processor portfolio, announces massive 48-core chip

San Francisco/New Delhi: Intel has extended its Xeon processor portfolio by launching announced two new members –the Cascade Lake advanced performance and the Intel Xeon E-2100 processor for entry-level servers.

While the Cascade Lake advanced performance is expected to be released the first half of 2019, the Xeon E-2100 is now available in markets, Intel said.

Cascade Lake advanced performance is designed for the most demanding high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) workloads, the company said.

The processor incorporates a performance optimized multi-chip package to deliver up to 48 cores per CPU and 12 DDR4 memory channels per socket.

The Xeon E-2100 processor is targeted at small- and medium-size businesses and cloud service providers.

Intel SGX on the Intel Xeon E-2100 processor family delivers hardware-based security and manageability features to further secure customer data and applications.

“This feature is currently unique to the Intel Xeon E processor family and allows new entry-level servers featuring an Intel Xeon E-2100 processor to provide an additional layer of hardware-enhanced security measures when used with properly enabled cloud applications,” Intel wrote in its website.
