The Intel Xeon Processor E3-1200 V4 Product Family

Formerly known as Broadwell-E3, this new generation of single socket server and workstation processors is based on the 14nm process technology.

Among the features of this new product family is the inclusion of Intel Iris Pro graphics (GT3e) on the processors, capable of up to twice the graphics performance of the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 V3 product family thanks to its 46 high performance execution units. Moreover, those graphics oriented models will feature a brand new on-package cache eDRAM memory. With simultaneous read/write bandwidth up to 51GB/s, this cache is dedicated to the storage of up to 128MB of cpu and graphics data. 

With the combination of their CPU and GPU computing capabilities, these new processors will be capable of over 1 TFLOPS processing power. With this performance level, the Intel Xeon E3-1200 V4 processors will be particularly suitable to build or upgrade server systems dedicated to:

  • Video transcoding
  • Video streaming
  • Desktop/workstation virtualization
  • Cloud gaming
  • Video search indexing
  • Automated ad insertion
  • Video surveillance
