Intel retires several Xeon processors

Intel retires several Xeon processors

The launch of the new Intel Xeon E7 v4 processors last week has turned into a death sentence for several older Xeon chips for the LGA 2011-1 socket. According to Intel, the company will stop releasing Xeon E7 v2 processors for the same socket.

These chips are based on the now old Ivy Bridge core and were launched in February 2014. They have up to 15 processing cores and are designed to work in servers that can house up to eight processors (in some cases up to 32 chips are also possible). One of the reasons for the retirement of the Xeon E7 v2 family is their lack of support for DDR4 memory. Here are the chips that are retired – Xeon E7-2850 v2, E7-2870 v2, E7-2880 v2, E7-2890 v2, E7-2800 v2, E7-4809 v2, E7-4820 v2, E7-4830 v2, E7-4850 v2, E7-4860 v2, E7-4870 v2, E7-4880 v2, E7-4890 v2, E7-8850 v2, E7-8857 v2, E7-8870 v2, E7-8880 v2, E7-8880Lv2, E7-8890 v2, E7-8891 v2 and E7-8893 v2.

Intel will accept orders for these processors until December 2016 with the last shipment date set for June 2019. By then these chips will have surely been forgotten.
