The Xeon Entry Quad-Core CPU Assessment: Xeon E-2174G, E-2134, and E-2104G Examined

Just a few months in the past, we examined a few of Intel's newest business 6-core processors, that are additionally utilized in low-end servers. Intel has additionally launched a number of quad-core fashions that we concentrate on as we speak. These Xeon E-quad core processors compete immediately with AMD's Ryzen Professional product line, specializing in manageability, ECC storage help, and assured product lifecycle.

Xeon E: the brand new Xeon E3

As Intel moved away from its Xeon E5 / E7 naming scheme for its server processors, there was an enormous outcry throughout IT procurement all over the place. With a recognized system eliminated and changed with unique metallic names resembling Xeon Platinum, Xeon Gold, Xeon Silver, and Xeon Bronze, everybody knew that it could imply relearning Intel's product segmentation guidelines and educating it to the executives signing it Procuring guidelines. The mainstream server market was not the one one which underwent a reputation change – the favored workstation processor fashions had been renamed Xeon W, and the final domino that fell was the Xeon E3-1200 processor line, now known as the Xeon Entry or Ee for brief will

The newest product launch, which might have been the Xeon E3-1200 v7, turns into the primary technology of the Xeon E-2100 and is suitable with the workstation processors (Xeon W-2100) and the Networking / Compute Crossover household (Xeon D -2100). Intel launched 11 processors, a collection of quad-core and six-core components that used the Espresso Lake microarchitecture.

In our earlier report, we regarded on the six core components: the E-2186G, the E-2176G, the E-2146G, and the E-2136. This time we concentrate on the quad-core components we've examined – the E-2174G, the E-2134 and the E-2104G. For these processors, the final digit is the variety of cores and the G is the built-in graphic.

The Xeon E household is a by-product of the buyer processor line, nevertheless it attaches to C236 chipset motherboards, however helps ECC reminiscence. Which means they primarily match into the business market, the place corporations have pre-built programs with error-correcting reminiscence for information safety. These processors additionally help vPro, which permits administration over a community, and each virtualization choices (VT-x and VT-d), which allow components for virtualized networks.

Xeon E-1274G, Xeon E-1234

The Xeon E-2174G is the highest quad-core processor on this line with hyperthreading and a base frequency of three.eight GHz and a turbo frequency of four.7. As famous in our six core evaluation, these processors and motherboard producers have a tendency to stick to Intel's strict energy administration necessities, not like the buyer motherboard section. Which means we should always count on it to carry out in the same method to shopper processors in single-threaded assessments, however multithreading is anticipated to be at its most in its all-core turbo frequency. At 71 watts for TDP, we might assume that that is additionally the everlasting load energy consumption.

Xeon E-2104G

The E-2134 is a decrease clocked model with no graphics, however the E-2104G is way extra fascinating. This processor is an off-roadmap half, ie it isn’t offered to retailers or sellers, however to sure OEMs who want to have this configuration. On this case it’s a TDP quad core processor with decrease TDP (65 W as an alternative of 71 W) with out turbo frequency – three.2 GHz beneath load. It nonetheless has built-in graphics playing cards, however the lowest turbo frequency at 1100 MHz.

Options to Xeon E

Should you nonetheless need a Xeon from Intel, then the Xeon Scalable collection has some low-frequency, six-core Bronze processors that value $ 350. If you don’t want ECC or administration choices, Intel's shopper components provide further energy.

From AMD, these Xeon Entry processors compete in opposition to the Ryzen Professional household, providing related administration choices (through DASH) and ECC help (relying on the motherboard), long-term stability and a wider alternative of choices from eight-core to quad core. The Ryzen Professional components are related in specs to their desktop counterparts. For these in search of Ryzen Professional chips in retail packaging, you're out of luck – AMD solely sells them to OEMs. Sadly, now we have not examined these components – we solely have a single, bought from China SKU with their very own cash.
