    [News] Intel Launches Xeon E Processors for Workstations

    https://www.tomshardware.com/news/in...ons,37451.html

    Intel announced its new Xeon E processors for the low end of the workstation market. Intel targets the new processors, which come with up to six cores and 12 threads, for professional users, such as designers, content creators, and data scientists. Ultimately the new Xeon E lineup serves as a lower-cost and lower-performance variant of Intel?s Xeon W lineup.

    Intel built the new processors with the same fundamental design as its Xeon Scalable processors. The Xeon E processors appear similar to Intel?s Coffee Lake desktop models, which are also available in SKUs that range from four cores and four threads up to six cores and 12 threads, but the Xeon E models feature the revamped Skylake-X/Xeon Scalable architecture and support up to 40 PCIe Gen 3.0 lanes. Intel splits the lanes between 16 lanes connected directly to the processor, and an additional 24 lanes hang off the C426 workstation-series chipset.

    Why would I buy an Intel 'lower-cost and lower-performance variant' as in being cheaper to buy when I can just buy Ryzen ??

    Is it just because of the EEC DDR ? and core scaliability ?
    lots and lots of cores and lots and lots of tuners,HTPC's boards,cases,HDD's,vga's,DDR1&2&3 etc etc all powered by Corsair PSU's

    EEC and I think Xeon silicon are binned higher than your standard PC chips. To a what degree I'm not sure.

    They are the same as a 1151 consumer part but ecc, more testing/warranty, and they guarantee replacement parts longer.

    The last few gens xeons are binned lower on 1151. They are more like failed mobile parts. They have too little leakage and get paired with low end parts normally so the tuning is weird.

    I was seriously considering Xeon plus the new LGA1151 a few months ago but pricing does not compute compared to Ryzen 6 core 12 thread parts

    Ended up with a 2600X + x470 which should speed up my lightroom processing compared to my trusty old 2500K that is still going strong
