Intel unveils new Xeon E7 v4 processors

Intel has unveiled a new family of processors called Xeon E7 v4 but unfortunately for all the hardware enthusiasts around the world the chances to use one such processor in a desktop computer are very slim – the new chips have been designed for businesses that deal with analytics tasks.

There’s little information on the new chips except that they are grouped in two lines – Xeon E7-8800 v4 and Xeon E7-4800 v4. Intel says the new chips offer robust performance, the industry’s largest memory capacity per socket, advanced reliability and hardware enhanced security. The chips have been designed for configurations up to 256 sockets via third-party node controllers and offer industry-leading memory capacity of up to 24 TB in an eight-socket system, which allows massive datasets to be stored in memory, rather than on hard drives, which accelerates insight and decision-making. The new Intel Xeon processors deliver 1.4 times higher performance, up to 10 times better performance per dollar and half the system power compared to IBM Power8-based solutions.

Unfortunately a complete list of the new Xeon chips is unavailable at the moment and there’s no information how much they cost.
