Based on the Intel microarchitecture, this processor series is the first to offer solutions ranging from 8-core/single-socket up to 16-core/two-socket, providing significant performance improvement over previous generations.
- Automated low-power states put processor, memory, and I/O controller into lowest-available power states while meeting current workload requirements
- PCI Express 3.0 integrated on the processor die and two Intel QuickPath Interconnect (Intel QPI) links boost performance, reduce latency, and save power
- Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX) accelerates compute performance for signal and image processing applications
- More memory channels and PCIe lanes compare to previous generation for enhanced performance
