Intel Launches Coffee Lake Xeon E (Entry): The Next-Gen E3-1200

0 Comments

Today Intel is announcing the Xeon E family of processors. The Xeon E-2100 stack of CPUs will replace the previous generation E3 v6 processors, following Intel’s renaming of their whole Xeon stack, and in line with the workstation-focused Xeon W-2100 family, and the Xeon D-2100 family. The new processors mirror the current Coffee Lake Core processors on the market and will support up to 64GB of ECC memory, but require motherboards with a specalized workstation C246 chipset.  The E in this case stands for ‘Entry’, and these processors aim to be the corner stone of Intel’s portfolio of entry-level workstation parts.
