Intel executives this week launched the latest version of their high-end Xeon E7 server chips, monster processors that scale up to 18 cores and offer up to six times the performance of their predecessors. The 22-nanometer Xeon E7 v3 chips, built on the "Haswell" architecture, deliver up to 12TB of memory, support DDR3 and DDR4 memory, and improve security and reliability through enhanced capabilities in the company's AES-NI, AVX2 and Run Sure technologies. The new chips address the demand for greater data analytics and real-time processing, where organizations need to quickly analyze the massive amounts of data being created to make better business decisions. The Xeon E7 v3 processors, with their 5.7 billion transistors, also will give organizations more incentive to migrate their high-end workloads from Unix systems that run atop IBM's Power8 and Oracle's SPARC platforms, Intel officials said. A broad array of OEMs also launched systems based on the new chips. This eWEEK slide show takes a look at the chips and some of those servers.
