Intel has this week announced the launch of two new additions to its networking and edge processor range in the form of the Intel Xeon D 2700 and Intel Xeon D 1700. Offering industrial-class reliability, multiple hardware-based security capabilities and up to 56 high-speed PCIe lanes to support high-bandwidth networks with up to 100Gb Ethernet.
The new Intel Xeon D-1700 system-on-chip (SoC) is scalable from 4 to 10 cores and the Intel Xeon D-2700 is scalable from 4 to 20 cores. The new Intel Xeon D SoC have been created to provide users with integrated AI and crypto acceleration, built-in Ethernet, support for Intel Time Coordinated Computing (Intel TCC) and Time Sensitive Networking (TSN).
Intel Xeon D Processors 2022
“As the industry enters a world of software-defined everything, Intel is delivering programmable platforms for networking and the edge to enable one of the most significant transformations our industry has ever seen. The new Intel Xeon D processor is built for this. Based on the proven and trusted Intel architecture, this processor is designed for a range of use cases to unleash innovation across the network and edge,” said Dan Rodriguez, Intel corporate vice president, Network & Edge Group, general manager of the Network Platforms Group.”
SoC features :
