Generation E-Xeon The new chip developer could offer a huge jump in the number of processing cores available to the server world
While in the home market we are holding our fingers to the transformation of Processors Owners of four, six and eight cores to the new basic standard of the market - it seems that the power-intensive processor world for servers may take an even bigger step forward, as early as the coming year.
Chinese site Has put forward a pre-engineered version of the model chip for the future Skylake-EP family Intel, Which will be part of the Purley platform - the Xeon E5-2699 v5, which includes a huge number of 32 physical processing cores and 64 virtual processing cores (thanks to HyperThreading), for a new resident that is named LGA3647 and stands as the largest Intel it's always been like this.
This new and monstrous model should only officially launch sometime next year, but when it does - it will be a leap of 10 physical processing cores and 20 logical processing cores compared to today's leading E5 model, theXeon E5-2699 v4. Even the CPUXeon The formidable and advanced E7 in the company's current arsenal includes "only" 24 physical processing cores, and pales in comparison to this new generation on the way.
By all accounts, the jump in the number of processing cores is not Intel's direct initiative - but a way to ensure continued competitiveness in the face of AMD, Which is also preparing a processor for the world of servers that will include 32 processing cores Zen attitude Physical and 64 logical cores (with SMT technology) to be launched somewhere next year, under its new Naples platform.
It should be noted that today it can be accommodated up to four processors Xeon E5 dedicated motherboards, and assuming this capability is also maintained in the new generation - no less than 128 will be able to create such advanced physical processing units per unit in standard 1U dimensions
God-Xeon E5-2699 v5 will offer a thermal shell of between 135 watts and 165 watts, with the proposed engineering model providing a basic operating frequency of 2.1GHz (probably alongside a turbo frequency of several hundred megawatts, similar to current parallel models) and a required price tag for a translated 3,850 dollars - although the official recommended model price, when launched, is likely to be even higher, moving somewhere between 4,000 and 5,000 dollars per unit.
All this data may sound strange and strange to the average home consumer, but in the end there is an important technological advance that will probably affect all chipmakers' products later - who knows, maybe in two years we will be able to see Extreme Home Processors with 14 or 16 Processing cores? We'll see.
