Intel introduced a new generation of server processors - Xeon E7 v2

Intel introduced a new generation of server processors - Xeon E7 v2 

These new server processors will replace the previous generation Xeon E7 products. They are produced by a 22-nanometer process using the so-called. 3D transistors Tri-gate, which debuted with the architecture Ivy Bridge. Chip Xeon E7 v2 to have 4.31 billion transistors located on the crystal size 541 mm2.

The announced processor family on Intel chips coming series Xeon E7 2800 v2, 4800 v2 and 8800 v2, designed respectively for servers with up to two, four and eight socket. Depending on the particular modification of processing of computing the number of cores may be 6, 8, 10, 12 or 15. Moreover, all new products maintain firm Hyper-Threading, which means that the most powerful models family Xeon E7 v2 may process 30 instruction stream simultaneously.

To date, Intel presented a total of 20 server CPU of a new generation whose characteristics can be seen in the table below. As evidenced by her clock chesstota chip varies from 1,9 to 3,4 GHz, while maintaining a dynamic overclocking technology when needed Turbo Boost. The amount of cache in the new processors reaches 37.5 MB, and the maximum value of the indicator for thermal dissipation power (TDP) of 105, 130 or 155 W.
Intel Xeon E7 v2 processors are equipped with two DDR3 memory controller, and the maximum supported volume this is up to 1.5 TB. The company noted that significantly improved propuksatelnata power of memory, integrated PCI-Express 3.0 controller supports 40 lines.
According to Intel, compared to alternative RISC-architectures chips surname Xeon E7 v2 provide "up to 80% more performance and also lower the cost of ownership." If you are new processors compared to the previous generation Xeon, it's performance is the growth in average twice, while the throughput of input-output operations - an average of four times.
