Intel introduces Kaby Lake Xeon E3-1200 v6 processor family

More than three months after it debuted consumer desktop processors based on the ‘Kaby Lake’ architecture, Intel today announced its first Xeon processor family based on the new architecture. The new E3-1200 V6 family of processors, just like the 7th Gen Intel Core processors, come with support Intel’s next-gen Optane memory technology. They have been designed for entry-level servers and small workstations used by small businesses.

The initial lineup announced today comprises of eight SKUs, as detailed below:

Processor CPU Cores Base Frequency Turbo Frequency L3 Cache TDP Price
E3-1280 v6 4 3.90 GHz 4.2 GHz 8MB 72W $612 (SGD 855)
E3-1275 v6 4 3.80 GHz 4.2 GHz 8MB 73W $339 (SGD 473)
E3-1270 v6 4 3.80 GHz 4.2 GHz 8MB 72W $328 (SGD 458)
E3-1245 v6 4 3.70 GHz 4.1 GHz 8MB 73W $284 (SGD 397)
E3-1240 v6 4 3.70 GHz 4.1 GHz 8MB 72W $272 (SGD 380)
E3-1230 v6 4 3.50 GHz 3.9 GHz 8MB 72W $250 (SGD 349)
E3-1225 v6 4 3.30 GHz 3.7 GHz 8MB 73W $213 (SGD 298)
E3-1220 v6 4 3.00 GHz 3.5 GHz 8MB 72W $193 (SGD 270)

 

As far as performance improvement goes, Intel is claiming a 56% jump over the Xeon E3-1200 V2 ‘Ivy Bridge’ family of CPUs, which were released in the year 2012. In terms of graphics, the SKUs ending with ‘5’ all feature the Intel HD P630 built-in graphics that are claimed to deliver up to 3X performance compared to the E3-1200 V2 family. Like previous Xeon processor families, the latest E3-1200 V6 SKUs do support ECC memory, vPro, Active Management Technology, virtualization technology, Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX), Platform Protection Technology (with Trusted Execution Technology (TXT)), and more. To use these new processors, you will need to have a server-grade motherboard based on either the Intel C232 or Intel C236 chipsets.
