Intel readies new Xeon D processor

Last year Intel introduced a new family of processors designed for micro servers and datacenters. The chips were called Xeon D but they had nothing in common with the older Intel Celeron D and Pentium D processors – all Xeon D chips featured the Broadwell micro architecture and were made on 14 nm. Up until now the family included several models with the fastest being the Xeon D-1541 processor with 12 MB of L3 cache memory. But Intel will soon have a new chip in the line and this time the chip will be called Xeon D-1571.

Most likely the newcomer will not become the fastest chip in the line since it will work at only 1.3 GHz, whereas the Xeon D-1541 runs at 2.1 GHz. The Xeon D-1571 will, however, offer 16 cores with Hyper-Threading technology for up to 32 threads being processed at once and will have 24 MB of L3 cache. The TDP will stay the same, though, at 45 watts.

The new chip will appear this month but the price will likely be a deal-breaker – the new Xeon D-1571 will sell for USD 1222. For instance, the Xeon D-1541 sells for just USD 581.
