Today, Intel announced the availability of the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family, which includes eight new versions that provide key improvements in processor speed, enhanced memory capabilities, hardware-enhanced security and reliability features with support for the latest Intel graphics.

Designed for entry-level servers used by small-business customers and powering entry-level workstations used by business professionals worldwide, the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family supports the increasing workloads and workflows of today's server and workstation customers, delivering greater business intelligence, acceleration and agility.



The Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family enables entry-level workstations to evolve and expand to support new and powerful workloads, including design, analytics, rendering, professional virtual reality (VR), production and distribution.

VR is one of the most exciting and revolutionary capabilities to affect professional workstation customers in recent years. Professional designers can experience the immediacy of creating a CAD drawing and quickly visualizing the draft in full 3D/VR. Now, for entry-level workstations configured to support the latest VR headset requirements, the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family can provide the foundation to introduce users to these immersive experiences.

A primary motivator in considering a professional-grade entry-level server or workstation is need to protect important data and intellectual property. The Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family includes hardware-enhanced security features such as Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) to help protect sensitive data like encryption keys used for communications over the internet from unauthorized access or modification. Intel Authenticate Solution offers customizable multifactor authentication to help protect access to the most sensitive company data.

The Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family delivers up to 56%1 performance improvement compared with the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v2, which is widely used by small businesses in entry-level workstations today. The Intel Xeon processor E3-1280 v6 supports up to 3.90 GHz base frequency with Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 frequency up to 4.20 GHz. Additionally, the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family supports enhanced memory speeds, with configurations of robust Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory up to 64 GB DDR at 2400 MHz.

In addition to enhanced processor performance and support for fast memory, the latest Intel HD graphics P630 is available on select products within the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family. The value and performance of Intel HD graphics P630 is reflected in an up to 3X1 graphics performance improvement when compared with an Intel Xeon processor E3-1280 v2.

The Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 v6 product family is shipping today and available for purchase from worldwide OEM and channel providers.

The 1275 has same turbo clock as the 1280, plus the improved iGPU, for $339, which is $273 less than the 1280. What's so special about the E3-1280 v2 that makes it cost so much more? If you don't need the iGPU, the 1270 also has the same turbo clock speed, for $328? This pricing doesn't make any sense.

They are identical, except Xeons usually lacks IGP and they have ECC support. And vPro, which is a host of things.

I look forward to Zen workstation CPU's slaughtering this entire lineup.

Nobody in their right mind would use an unproven platform with the heatoutput of the Zen for workstation/serveruse.

Once Zen has matured 1-2 generations more, then perhaps, but now? No fucking way

You cant apply your own needs to the workstation/entrylevel server market in general. Stability and efficientcy is way more important than the raw speed itself

To Intel's defense - these were made and ready like 2-3 years ago... so they milked market as long as possible - but now they must dump it to the market, no matter that these chips are completely irrelevant even at 50% price drop when R5 will hit the market. so yea - professionals out there - buy a professional product for professional price while you still can. (but I am sure some "professionals" will not like comment like this and will remind me how important 1080 gaming with a 700$ GPU are for them - even on a workstation PC)

Lol....

Yeah, guys, AMD totally has hot CPUs and will release unstable Opterons.

There's one in every thread.

Lol all you want, but the idle powerdraw of the r7 is to high, and the platform IS still unproven.

See here for instance: https://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/2017/03/02/amd-ryzen-1800x-and-am4-platform-review/8

Now - the idle draw might change with revisions, and it might be different when we see the actual chips and the boards that is going with them. But untill then, we have only the current facts. And they do NOT point towards server/workstation use.

"heat output" Yup, the good old "AMD's are very hot" myth is still very much alive apparently... You do realize X1800 has twice as much cores and threads as these toys? Not to mention 20°C higher (intentional) temperature reporting... Knock your nonsense out of your head, Ryzen is more efficient than anything Intel can offer at the moment.

Unproven platform, that I somewhat agree on since it's really unproven as it's so new, but the heat thing is just nonsense.

But a 6900K is the definition of a workstation CPU and that uses more power. Ryzen currently is almost the perfect workstation system.

It is currently not the perfect server CPU as the server version is not here yet.

Yup, power consumption is just off the charts, right?

If people were so concerned over reliability (talking about business environments), everyone would be freaking out on every CPU release, because if things were that sensitive to everything, every CPU refresh, even if insignificant would have to be treated the same unless it's just a raw die shrink. Which is never the case these days anyway. Not to mention almost every CPU has glitches, even Intel had them and still has them.

Its looks like chips than cant be selled like 7700k.

Which the utility for an profesional have an quad core cpu ? What have this XEONS as advantages over the Ryzen R7 ? Sorry i cant understand this cpus , perhaps i dont know about XEONS.

btw the E3-1200 v2 intel comparision was launched in 2012 according to Google.

These usually sits in smaller workstations and cheaper single-socket servers.
