Intel announces the hexa-core Xeon E-2100 family for entry-level workstation PCs

Today, Intel announced the Xeon E-2100 family of CPUs, which are aimed at entry-level workstations. These include devices that were also announced today, such as Dell's Precision workstations and Lenovo's ThinkStation P330 family.

The new chip family has six cores, just like the desktop family of Core CPUs, and it's hyperthreaded for a total of 12 threads. The 95W CPU clocks in at 3.8GHz, with a Turbo Boost speed of 4.7GHz. If it's not entirely obvious by Intel's inability to produce a 10nm processor, this is built on the 14nm Coffee Lake architecture.

Here's the full lineup of Xeon E-2100 CPUs:

The new processors fit in an LGA 1151 socket, and support up to 40 PCI Express 3.0 lanes. Obviously, they support newer standards like USB 3.1 Gen 2, Thunderbolt 3, and more. They do come with Intel UHD Graphics P630; however, the PC you purchase with one of these chips will likely have AMD Pro or Nvidia Quadro dedicated graphics.

Intel also noted that while it's been celebrating 50 years of its company's history and 40 years of the x86 architecture, it's also celebrating 20 years of Xeon processors, which was first launched in 1998.

Products with the new Xeon E-2100 chips will begin shipping today.
