Intel® lifted the curtain on its new generation of Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors last year and we're excited to share details on their new refresh of CPUs (codenamed Cascade Lake) that launched today!
With higher core counts, higher frequency and some fantastic pricing, these new 18 SKUs additions to the 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Family are an attractive option for your infrastructure.
What's new with the 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Family?
Peak frequencies for high performance usages
The all new Intel® Xeon® Gold 6256 and Gold 6250 processors deliver groundbreaking base and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequencies to the Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor lineup. These new processors deliver up to 4.5GHz Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, along with up to 3.9GHz base frequency, and up to 33% more processor cache, which offers breathrough performance for frequency-fuled workloads.
Enhanced performance for mainstream usages
The new Intel® Xeon® Gold 6200R processors deliver built-in value through a combination of higher base and Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequencies, in addition to increased processor cache, all at a similar or lower recommended pricing compared to current Intel® Xeon® Gold 6200 processors.
Increased value and capability for entry, edge and IOT servers
The new Intel® Xeon® Gold 5200R processors deliver built-in value, with up to 33% more cores, increased Intel® Turbo Boost Technology frequencies, and up to 44% increase in processor cache, all offered at the same recommended pricing as current Intel® Xeon® Gold 5200 processors. All 5200R processors offer built-in AI acceleration with Intel® Deep Learning Boost.
