Intel today announced the new Intel Xeon E-2100 processor that is designed for entry-level workstations. This new processor offers improved single-threaded application performance with a platform optimized for reliability and affordability. It also offers higher max turbo frequency, faster DRAM speeds, enhanced I/O, and advanced security and reliability features when compared to its predecessor.
The Intel Xeon E-2100 processor is a 6-core processor targeted at entry-level workstations. The combination of two additional cores and higher single-core turbo frequency delivers increases in performance across workstation benchmarks as compared with previous 4-core entry workstation processors. The processor offers Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory, a key feature to maximize data integrity, to help improve system stability and to reduce the possibility of silent data corruption.
