Intel Reveals New Xeon CPUs, E-2100 and Cascade Lake Advanced Performance

These are probably not the processors you will be using in your next build, unless you are putting together a workstation or servers. Intel has shown off what it will be offering next from its Xeon line of CPUs, with the Xeon E-2100 targeting entry-level severs and the Cascade Lake Advance Performance platform aiming much higher. The E-2100 series offers up to 6 cores/12 threads and can boost as high as 4.7 GHz using Turbo Boost 2.0, and the highest-end chip has a base of 3.8 GHz. That top-end chip, the E-2186G, has an recommended price of $450, but there is an offer all the way down to $193 for the E-2124 that has only 4 cores/4 threads, a base clock of 3.3 GHz and a boost of 4.3 GHz. All of these processors offer up to 40 PCIe lanes between the CPU and the chipset. These processors should be available today.

Also revealed was the Cascade Lake Advance Performance platform that is a much higher-end solution and is expected to be available in the first half of next year. We do not have many details for it but it will off up to 48 cores on a single processor with twelve DDR4 channels per socket. To achieve this, it appears Intel is gluing chips together into a multi-chip package, MCP. The performance numbers given suggest it will be as much as 3.4 times faster than the AMD EPYC 7601 at Linpack. However, as Intel admits in the small print, there may be optimizations in place that favor Intel CPUs over non-Intel processors, and the comparison is against a projection of the Intel CPU's performance. We may have to wait until next year to see real performance numbers, but until then it seems safe to say, the core wars are continuing.
