At STH, we have put together a number of articles covering the Intel Xeon E-2100 series and the Intel Xeon E-2200 series. For our readers, we wanted to put together coverage into a succinct place so they can easily find our Intel Xeon E-2100 and Xeon E-2200 series coverage.
Intel Xeon E-2100 and Xeon E-2200 Series Overview
The Intel Xeon E-2100 and Intel Xeon E-2200 series are the company’s line that spans two primary markets. First, these chips can be found in workstations as counterparts to the Intel Core line. Second, they serve the entry-level server market for servers that typically use under 300W.
In the workstation market, the primary differentiator of the chips is support for unbuffered ECC memory. Current generation Intel Core i7 and Core i5 series chips do not support ECC UDIMMs, but most Core i3 chips, like the Intel Core i3-8100 we reviewed, do. The Xeon E series can also support features like vPro that are not found on all of the company’s Core offerings.
In the server market, these chips are often found in two places. Either as edge compute servers or as dedicated hosting nodes. With minimal PCIe, I/O, RAM capacity, and cores the cost and power consumption for these servers remains low.
The “G” series Intel Xeon E-2100 and Xeon E-2200 chips support integrated graphics. In the workstation market, this can be used to drive displays. In the server market, this is often used for video transcoding offloads. This is Intel’s only current series with an integrated GPU.
At STH, we have a number of benchmark and review pieces to help our readers understand the differences between the chips. We also have a number of pieces for the platforms that these chips go into.

For the updated E-2200 series platforms, we have also reviewed the newer Core i3-9100F which now offers turbo boost on its four cores. This Core i3 chip and the Core i3-9100 that has onboard graphics can be used as lower-end SKUs in these platforms. We also tested the Core i3-9300 for a faster option.
On the lower-end, one can use the Intel Pentium Gold G5420 which features a reduced instruction set and fewer cores, but also a lower cost.

Overall, we have a ton of content for this generation of “entry” level Xeon CPUs.
Huh, and I’ve thought Intel kicks itself and release E-2200 already! btw, where is this mysterious still expected 8-core 21xx xeon?
Awaiting xeon E-2278G review …
Does anyone know if the Super Micro C246 bords like the X11SCM-F will support the E-2200, or if they will release a new MB line just for the E-2200?
Look like supermicro alredy supports E-2200. I found in relese notes for last BIOS (X11SCM-F): “Updated Coffee Lake-S R-0 stepping CPU microcode” and “Added setting of system default Power Limit 2 to 150W when using 8 Core CPU”.
Anyone found a mini-itx board for the E-2200 series? I managed to find one: the ‘avalue EMX-C246P’, not a brand I’d seen before. Wonder if it is just a matter of waiting a while for more to be released…
Also saw an Asus P11C-I, but it doesn’t list the E-2200 as supported – maybe a BIOS update will allow support
Does: ASUS WS C246M Pro
Support: E-2200 series?
Yes, Asus has updated the web page for the WS C246M Pro to indicate that it supports E-2200 CPU’s.
