Intel Unveils 10-Core Xeon E7

Intel touts its new chip line-up: The new 10-core versions of the CPUs can all run at up to 2.4 GHz with a TDP of 130 watts. Stuart Johnston reports.

Intel announced Tuesday it is shipping a slew of new Xeon server processors, dubbed E7, that support up to 10 cores, as well as the new E3 line designed for small business applications such as storage and backup.

The company’s new E7 family of Xeon CPUs is built on Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) 32-nanometer processor technology, uses Intel’s Hyperthreading Technology, and has as much as 40 percent better performance than the Xeon 7500 series processor, according to Intel statements.

Overall, Intel’s new E7 family consists of 18 processors that fit two-, four-, and eight-socket servers. Additionally, they are expandable to servers with as many as 256 sockets, Intel (NASDAQ: INTC) said. In fact, a single E7 processor system can replace as many as 18 dual-core CPUs, the company claims.

“The industry momentum we’re seeing for this new server processor architecture is unparalleled in Intel’s history,” Kirk Skaugen, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Data Center Group, said in a statement.
