Introducing the Intel Xeon E5 2600 v4 Processor Family
A “tick” is not merely a check mark or a nuisance insect – it’s a major Intel® product launch!
In accordance with Moore’s Law, Intel’s Xeon® E5 2600 v4 processor family represents a “tick” in Intel’s “tick-tock” upgrade model. The overall microarchitecture remains the same, but shrinks. (In this case slimming down from 22 nm to 14 nm).
What this means to you is that our Intel Xeon based server collection just got a major boost. These new Xeon processors are available immediately* as a configurable option on nearly every Intel server we offer.
Key benefits of the new processor family are a higher core count (up to 22 cores per CPU), the smaller 14 nm die, faster DDR4 2400 memory, and support for NVDIMMs. Initial benchmarking has indicated an average performance boost of 20% over comparable v3 processor versions.
New additional advanced features have also been added to the architecture. Intel Resource Director Technology (Intel RDT) offers better management of shared platform resources — for example L3 cache and system memory — across networking, storage, and compute using advanced orchestration and automation capabilities. Built for software-defined infrastructure, these new features of the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 v4 family are foundational to deliver resource utilization, service tiering, and quality of service (QoS) levels that are both efficient and automated.
Another notable benefit of the “tick” part of the cycle is that these new CPUs can be run on the same platform as the Xeon E5-2600 v3 product family, with little more than a BIOS update. Contact us if you’re interested in upgrading your existing Pogo servers.
