Today, ahead of MWC Barcelona 2022, Intel also launches the new Intel Xeon D processors: the Xeon D-2700 and the Xeon D-1700. They are Intel’s newest system-on-chip (SoC) built for the software-defined network and edge, with integrated AI and crypto acceleration, built-in Ethernet, support for Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC) and Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), and industrial-class reliability. New Intel Xeon D processors extend compute with acceleration beyond the core data centre, generating a better overall experience for key network and edge usages and workloads.
About New Intel Xeon D Processors
Two new additions to Intel’s networking and edge processor family, the Intel Xeon D-2700 and Intel Xeon D-1700, meet customers where they need compute the most: in space- and power-constrained ruggedized environments. They feature industrial-class reliability, multiple hardware-based security capabilities, and up to 56 high-speed PCIe lanes to support high-bandwidth networks with up to 100Gb Ethernet. Intel Xeon D-1700 is scalable from 4 to 10 cores and the Intel Xeon D-2700 is scalable from 4 to 20 cores, delivering a broad platform family for customers to tailor solutions for the compute and performance they need.
The new Intel Xeon D processors feature:
-Up to 4CH DDR4 with 3200 Hz.
- Up to 100 GbE in the Ethernet throughput capability.
- Up to 32/64 4.0 PCIe lanes.
Built on Sunny Cove Core architecture, the new Intel Xeon D processors offer:
- Improved front end, with a higher capacity and improved branch predictor.
- Wider and deeper machine sustained by a wider allocation, larger structures, and execution resources.
- Enhancements in transition line buffers (TLBs), single-thread execution, and prefetching.
- With new data center-optimized capabilities, including a larger Mid-level Cache (l2) and a higher Vector throughout.
The new processors bring generation-over-generation performance3 increases:
- Up to 2.4 times improvement for visual processing inference.
- Up to 1.7 times improvement for complex networking workloads like 5G UPF at the network edge.
- Up to 1.5 times improvement for SD-WAN, SASE, and edge use cases with IPSec.
- Up to 1.8 times improvement for application delivery controller, and security appliance use cases with TLS.
- Up to 1.56 times improvements for communication appliances.
