When Intel revamped its Xeon product branding last year with the Xeon Scalable Processor family, it didn’t replace its entire Xeon lineup in one fell swoop. Entry-level Xeons were still tied to the old E3 v6 family and were explicitly based on Kaby Lake (7th Gen) Intel cores, rather than the higher core-count Coffee Lake chips that Intel launched in the consumer space. Today, the company is updating its entry-level Xeon platform with a new brand and model range. The new Xeon E-2100 family is the result.
Entry-level Xeon customers should see a significant performance improvement from the new Xeon E-2100 family compared with older Xeon E3 v6 CPUs. The addition of extra CPU cores and higher top-line frequencies will provide the same overall performance improvement to Xeon that the Core family has already benefited from. The jump between Xeon E-2100 and Xeon E3v6 should be roughly equivalent to the gains we saw between Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake.
