Introducing thentel Xeon Processor Scalable family

Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family represents biggest data center platform advancement in this decade.

Intel is to unveil its next-generation Intel® Xeon® processor family (code-named “Skylake”), which represents the biggest set of data center platform advancements in this decade. To reflect the magnitude of the innovations we are bringing to market with this platform, it is renaming the family the Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family.

The new Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family represents a major architectural leap forward in processor architecture and platform advancements, delivering workload-optimized performance for compute, network and storage. The Scalable family provides the foundation for the next generation of cloud infrastructure to fuel applications as wide-ranging as analytics, artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, high-performance computing, and network transformation. As we have with every generation of Intel Xeon processor delivery, the Scalable family will also feature breakthrough performance, security and agility.

The Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family is re-architected from the ground up and will be the successor to the Intel Xeon processor E5 and E7 product lines. It will incorporate unique features for compute, network and storage workloads, and impressive performance gains of up to 3.9x higher scalability for virtualized workloads as compared with the 4-year-old systems widely used in the market today, allowing customers to run more and a more diverse variety of workloads on each system.

The Scalable family will feature integrated performance accelerators such as Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) and Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT), as well as Intel® Volume Management Device (Intel® VMD), a new platform capability designed to deliver seamless management of PCIe-based (NVMe) solid state drives such as the recently launched Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X and Intel® SSD DC P4600 drives. Intel® VMD enables a “hot plug” capability that minimizes service interruptions during drive swaps.

The Intel Xeon Processor Scalable family will offer four levels of performance and capabilities, with a wealth of configuration choice with regard to which integrations and accelerators customers need, and a new tiered model based on metals (bronze, silver, gold and platinum) to make the options simple and efficient to choose.
