More cores, more cores for everyone!

Intel Launches their Xeon E series of Coffee Lake processors

Intel has officially launched their new Xeon E series of processors, CPUs that are intended for entry-level workstation products for professional use cases where reliability is key. 

The new Xeon E-series sit between Intel's Mobile Xeon offerings and their high core count LGA-2066 Xeon W series of processors. This new series of products can also be seen as a direct replacement for Intel's former E3 V6 series of processors, updating their processor architecture from Kaby Lake to Coffee Lake. 

Coffee Lake Xeon processors already exist in the form of Intel's mobile-oriented Xeon E-2186M and E-2176M, both of which offer six total processing cores.

Like all Xeon-class processors, Intel delivers customers increased product validation to ensure reliability and support for error correcting code (ECC) DDR4 memory, making these processors suitable for products where stability is a primary concern and system downtime could result in substantial costs to businesses.    

With the new Xeon E series, Intel delivers an unprecedented generation-over-generation upgrade, offering support for what Intel lists as a 1.36x performance boost over their previous-generation hardware and a 1.73x boost over their products from four years ago. This performance leap makes 2018 an excellent year for a system refresh. 

The upgrade to Intel's Coffee Lake architecture allows Intel to offer increased core counts over their last-generation counterparts, upping maximum core counts from four total cores to six total processing cores. This change mirrors the leap made by Intel's 8000-series of desktop processors.

Intel estimates that the company's new Xeon E-2186G processor can offer between a 1.36-1.45% boost over their last-generation Xeon E3 1285 v6 CPU. This is a substantial generation-over-generation leap for Xeon users and can deliver user significant productivity improvements and reduce waiting times for work completion.

Intel has also highlighted that their new Xeon E processors are VR ready and suitable for the world's growing professional VR market, offering compatibility with both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. VR has become more commonly used in arcade-style applications in recent years, dramatically increasing the need for high-performance professional-grade processors for VR and other pro-gaming applications. 

This release comes not long after the launch of HTC's Vive Pro headset, which also delivers an improved SteamVR 2.0 tracking system that can provide a larger play area for future commercial VR applications. Intel sees this as an ideal market for their new Xeon E series of products.

In professional workloads, time is everything, especially for video editors and high-end editing applications. Multitasking is also a desirable quality for high-end workstations, as this will allow workers to complete further work on systems that would otherwise be unusable. 

In a heavy 4K VR video merging workload, Intel has stated that their new Xeon E series of processors can offer time savings of 24%, delivering a lot of potential for increased productivity.

Well to be fair here, even though I do understand what you mean, you don't really need more than 6 cores.Quote

lol more like 2008 !

I had a couple of Westmere Xeons with 6 cores ffs. I had an 8 core Ivy and now have a 10 and 14c BE.

And they are celebrating 6 cores? lmfao. "So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999" comes to mind

And yeah, most enterprise software is massively threaded because servers run massively cored CPUs with low clock speeds. So you will really be missing a trick.Quote
