Empowered, the new Intel Xeon E7 will create servers equipped with a maximum of 80 physical cores, an ideal offer for critical applications.
Intel has just lifted curtain on its new processors, Xeon Westmere-EX new generation. These chips are engraved in 32 nm and integrate Hyper-Threading technology. They also provide instructions for using the AES-NI encryption and secure execution of TXT technology. This range is divided into three subsets: the Xeon E7-2800 (bisocket), E7-4800 (quadrisocket) and E7-8800 (octosocket).
The E7-2800 is available in six models HT (Hyper-Threading): E7-2803 – 6 cores, 18 MB L3 cache, 1.73 GHz, E7-2803 – 6 cores, 18 MB L3 cache, 1.73 GHz, E7-2820 – 8 cores, 18 MB L3 cache, 2 GHz, E7-2830 – 8 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2.13 GHz, E7-2850 – 10 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2 GHz, E7-2860 – 10 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2.26 GHz, and E7-2870 – 10 cores, 30 MB L3 cache, 2.4 GHz.
The E7-4800 HT batch (Hyper-Threading): E7-4807 – 6 cores, 18 MB L3 cache, 1.86 GHz, E7-4820 – 8 cores, 18 MB L3 cache, 2 GHz, E7-4830 – 8 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2.13 GHz, E7-4850 – 10 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2 GHz, E7-4860 – 10 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2.26 GHz, and E7-4870 – 10 cores, 30 MB L3 cache, 2.4 GHz.
Finally, E7-8800 HT (Hyper-Threading): E7-8830 – 8 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2.13 GHz, E7-8837 – 8 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2.67 GHz (without Hyper-Threading), E7-8850 – 10 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2 GHz, E7-8860 – 10 cores, 24 MB L3 cache, 2.26 GHz, E7-8867L – 10 cores, 30 MB L3 cache, 2.13 GHz, and E7-8870 – 10 cores, 30 MB L3 cache, 2.4 GHz.
However, none of these processors deliver superior thermal envelope 130W. Moreover, inactive cores will automatically be put to rest.
The new family of Intel Xeon processors E7 displays records with powerful performance improvements in safety, reliability and energy efficiency. The rising power of this new processor architecture that we see in the profession has no equal in the entire history of Intel. Means that, days coming to an end where IT organizations were forced to deploy expensive, closed RISC architectures for critical applications.
Those enterprises wish to have dedicated servers for critical applications will probably quickly adopt Xeon E7-8867L and Xeon E7-8870, which will assemble servers with a maximum of 80 physical cores (160 logical cores with Hyper-Threading), all being supported by a total of 300 MB of Level 3 cache memory, it will easily compete machines with RISC processors like Itanium servers. But be careful, because if these chips have the power needed to hunt on the lands of Itanium, their prices are also higher in the high end.
Note that, at the same time, the company also unveils its Xeon E3 designed for mono-socket servers. Equipped with two or four physical cores, they are very close to i core processors Sandy Bridge, which accessible worldwide for desktop. The prices of these components are between $189 to $612 HT and HT batch of 1000 (depending on model). Intel will also launch later in the year, the family of Xeon E5 Sandy Bridge for the workstations and dual-socket servers.
