The new Xeon D processors are built on the Sunny Cove Core architecture. The chips offer a significant performance increase over the last generation, with up to 56 high-speed PCIe lanes and built-in support for up to 100Gb Ethernet. The D-1700 series is scalable from 4 to 10 cores and the D-2700 is scalable from 4 to 20 cores allowing the customers to tailor the solution according to their needs.

Over the previous generation, the new processors have around 2.4 times improvement for visual processing inference, up to 1.7 times improvement for complex networking workloads like 5G UPF, up to 1.8 times improvement for application delivery controller and security appliance use cases with TLS, and up to 1.56 times improvement for communication appliances.

Intel's corporate VP Dan Rodriguez said:

“As the industry enters a world of software-defined everything, Intel is delivering programmable platforms for networking and the edge to enable one of the most significant transformations our industry has ever seen. The new Intel Xeon D processor is built for this. Based on the proven and trusted Intel architecture, this processor is designed for a range of use cases to unleash innovation across the network and edge.”

Intel says that it has got more than 70 partners that are working with the company to utilize their latest Xeon D processors including Cisco, Juniper Networks, and Rakuten Symphony.
