New Intel Xeon processor E7 v4 family delivers 24-core horsepower for real-time analytics

Intel logoIntel is releasing the Xeon processor E7-8890 v4 processor family (Broadwell-EX) for real-time analytics so that businesses can gain actionable insights from massive and complex data sets.

The Xeon E7 v4 family is produced using Intel's 14nm mnaufacturing process.

The new family offers headroom for growth with traditional four- and eight-socket support, is designed for configurations up to 256 sockets via third-party node controllers, and is used in OEM system designs that currently feature up to 64 sockets. It also offers high memory capacity of up to 24TB in an eight-socket system, allowing massive datasets to be stored completely in memory, rather than on hard drives, to accelerate time to insight and decision-making.

The new chips are based on the Broadwell architecture and are socket compatible with the Xeon E7 v3 chips, meaning they can be plugged into existing servers using those sockets.

Seven new chips with between four to 24 cores are being introduced in the Xeon E7-8800 v4 family.

The Xeon processor E7-8890 v4 chip is part of the Xeon E7-8800 v4. The 24-core chip will go, in many cases, into monster performer four- to eight-socket servers. An eight-socket system could have up to 192 cores, with support for up to 24TB of memory.

The 24-core Xeon E7-8890 v4 has a frequency of 2.2GHz, 60MB of cache, and draws 165 watts of power. The other chips in the E7 8800 line have clock speeds from 2.1GHz to 3.2GHz, cache between 45MB to 60MB, and draw between 140 watts and 165 watts of power.

Intel estimated a 192-core system with 2TB of memory and two hard drives to be priced at about US$165,000. Add 24TB of memory, and the server price could skyrocket.

About 18 server makers are coming out with 51 systems running the new processors, according to Intel.

Intel also announced Xeon E7-4800 v4 series chips, which have between eight and 16 cores, draw 115 watts of power, and have 20MB to 40MB of cache. The chips have slower internal bandwidth but are designed for lower priced high-performance computers.
