Intel announces powerful E3-1500M Xeon processors for mobile workstations
The new Xeon processors are tailored specifically for high-power mobile workstations and while there are already notebooks with Xeon CPUs, these existing cores are based on the desktop Xeon E3-1231 V3 and are not true mobile processors.
According to Intel, there is an increasing demand from architects, designers, engineers, and media professionals for higher performance in a portable package. Data from IDC shows a rising trend for certified mobile workstations and a decreasing trend for desktop workstations based on its global Workstation Tracker as of Q2 2015.
Thus, Intel plans on launching the E3-1500M V5 product family for mobile workstations, though prices and launch windows for such processors have not yet been revealed. These are, however, set to appear on Lenovo's upcoming ThinkPad P50 and P70 lineup of workstation notebooks. The new family will support high-end features such as DDR4 ECC RAM, vPro, and Thunderbolt 3. We expect more workstation notebooks to be announced with these new Xeon cores in the very near future.
