The latest Intel Xeon D-1571 SoC, designed for high-density data centers, and micro-servers, sets a new benchmark for energy efficiency. The new SoC offers a high output with a very low energy consumption and seek another serious rival to SoCs based on the ARM architecture are having a great popularity in the segment of Datacenters, high density Workstationes or Micro-Servers, since this is a processor manufactured under Broadwell @ 14nm architecture which includes no fewer than 16 physical cores at a frequency of 1.30 GHz thanks to Hyperthreading enabling 32 logical CPUs.
Intel launches Xeon D-1571: 16-core Broadwell with a TDP of 45W
These cores enjoy the accompaniment of a parent of DDR4 memory that allows the installation of up to 128 GB of ECC DDR4 memory in a Dual Channel configuration, they are supported by a total of 24 MB of L3 cache (L3) memory and TDP it is only 45W, and being cooled by a single active cooling system. Obviously, this great power in the form of low-power SoC and has a high cost, server board vendors will buy the Xeon D-1571 at $1,222 a piece in 1000-unit quantities.
