Xeon Processor E7 Family
The Xeon Processor E7 Family is designed to enable IT departments to better manage data-intensive environments. Based on 32-nanometer process technology, the processors have up to 10 cores with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology. An energy-saving feature reduces the power draw of idle portions of the chip. The processor family contains 18 processors for two-, four- and eight-socket servers, and is expandable to servers with 256 sockets. The chips include Intel Intelligent Power technology that reduces idle power consumption based on the workload, while also delivering advanced processor power-management capabilities. Ten advanced 10-core versions of the chip are offered, led by the E7-8870, E7-4870 and E7-2870, all of which reach 2.4 GHz with a TDP (Thermal Design Point) of 130 watts. The 10-core low-voltage E7-8867L reaches 2.13 GHz with a TDP of 105 watts, while the eight-core frequency-optimized E7-8837 tops out at 2.67 GHz with a TDP of 130 watts.
