The Intel Xeon E-2176G is a high-end desktop processor with six cores based on the Coffee Lake architecture and was announced in the third quarter of 2018. The processor clocks at between 3.7 and 4.7 GHz and can execute up to twelve threads simultaneously thanks to Hyper-Threading. According to Intel, the CPU is manufactured in an improved 14nm (14nm++) process. Compared to the similar Coffe Lake desktop CPUs (e.g. Core i7-8700K), the Xeon CPUs include support for ECC RAM.
Due to the two additional cores, performance has increased by almost 50% compared to the previous quad-core Kaby Lake models. Single-core performance has not improved much. As a high-end model, the E-2176G is suitable for the most demanding applications and games.
The integrated Intel UHD Graphics P630 iGPU is supposed to offer higher performance as its clock rate has been increased by 50 MHz. The build is identical to that of the Intel HD Graphics P630. We do expect a performance improvement, but as a low-end solution it will probably only display current games smoothly at reduced details - if at all.
Intel specifies the TDP with 80 watts and therefore 15 W higher as e.g. the Core i7-8700 desktop CPU.
