Launch prices for the eight entry-level quad-core processors are still unknown.

Intel has introduced eight new Kaby Lake Xeon processors for basic workstations, low-cost VR systems, and storage servers. The new Xeon E3-1200 v6 family of CPUs are all quad-core offerings with both 8 MB of L3 cache and Turbo Boost 2.0. Six of the eight will also be capable of Hyper-Threading, so only the E3-1220 v6 and E3-1225 v6 will be left in the cold in terms of the number of simultaneous threads. Base clock rates start at 3.0 GHz on the lower-end E3-1220 v6 up to 3.9 GHz on the higher-end E3-1280 v6.

The new E3-1200 v6 series will be compatible with the familiar LGA 1151 socket type that was also used for the outgoing E3-1200 v5 series so long as the system can support 72/73 W TDP processors. Only the E3-1275 v6, E3-1245 v6, and E3-1225 v6 will carry the integrated HD Graphics P630 GPU that should perform similarly to the consumer-grade HD Graphics 630 with the addition of ECC support and other workstation-specific optimizations. Additionally, Intel has updated the C232 and C236 chipsets to support Optane Memory as cache to accelerate drive performance.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
