To deliver both performance and value, Intel® has optimized these new server processors in several areas, including adding more cores, increasing cache sizes or
by boosting processor frequency. The new processors — labeled with an "R", "T" or "U" suffix — are designed for dual- and single-socket mainstream and entry-level
server systems. The addition of more cores and increased cache in these processors are targeted at workloads where capacity-per-server is critical, such as virtualized
clouds, hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) and network function virtualization (NFV).
Intel® also announced two new processors (Intel® Xeon® Gold 6256 and 6250) that feature the industry’s highest server processor frequency, delivering a base and turbo frequency
up to 3.9 GHz and 4.5 GHz, respectively. These high-frequency processors are optimized for workloads that scale with clock frequency, such as financial trading, simulation
and modeling, high-performance computing, and databases.
The new 2nd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors target three broad customer use cases:
- Industry-leading frequencies for high-performance usages: New Intel® Xeon® Gold 6200 processors deliver up to 4.5 GHz processor frequency with Intel Turbo Boost Technology and up to 33% more processor cache, offering customers breakthrough performance for frequency-fueled workloads.
- Enhanced performance for mainstream usages: New Intel® Xeon® Gold 6200R and 5200R processors deliver built-in value through a combination of higher base and Intel Turbo Boost Technology frequencies, in addition to increased processor cache.
- Increased value and capability for entry-level, edge, networking and IoT usages: New Intel® Xeon® Gold 6200U, Silver 4200R, Sliver 4210T and Bronze 3200R processors deliver increased value for single-socket entry-level servers, as well as edge, networking and internet of things (IoT) usages.
