Chip Shot: New Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v5 Family Boosts Compute and Graphics Performance for Entry-level Workstations

Intel today introduced the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v5 product family for entry-level workstations – a powerful processing and graphics platform for designers, engineers, scientists and animators to develop more quickly their complex product designs and research. Based on Intel’s 14nm Skylake architecture, the product family delivers up to 27 percent higher compute and graphics performance compared to the previous generation Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v3 product family. The processors feature 4 cores, ranging in frequency from 2.0 GHz to 3.7 GHz, and have an integrated Intel® HD Graphics P530 graphics solution with certification from the leading workstation software vendors. The product family features 20 PCIe Gen3 ports to enable the use of the latest generation, high performance SSDs, and supports Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory to keep applications running reliably and the data uncompromised.
