We recently covered the Intel Xeon E-2200 refresh launch. Just after that, we found that the launch was only for workstations. Instead, Intel will be re-launching the Intel Xeon E-2200 series for servers soon. That is, of course, only for some server applications. For servers that fall under the embedded category, the new Intel Xeon E-2200 embedded series CPUs are already out. Confused yet?
New Intel Xeon E-2200 Series Embedded SKUs Launched
Here is what we were able to get for information on the new Intel Xeon E-2200 embedded series CPUs.
We combined this with our value analysis but we had precious little information here to use.
There are a few features of the list we wanted to point out. The “M” seems to indicate that one can configure the TDP up or down. The Intel Xeon E-2254ME and Intel Xeon E-2276ME are listed as 45W TDP configurable down to 35W. Conversely, the low power “L” chip known as the Intel Xeon E-2276ML is listed as 25W but configurable up to 35W.
M and L are used in a somewhat strange way. Those same letter suffix notations in the context of other Intel Xeon CPUs, or the Second Generation Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs mean increased RAM capacity.
Another strange suffix is the “G” which means integrated graphics on the Intel Xeon E-2100 and Xeon E-2200 series processors. Indeed, for the “G” processors here, they have integrated graphics as well. The Intel Xeon E-2276ML and Xeon E-2276ME SKUs drop the G, but retain Intel UHD Graphics P630 onboard.
Luckily, the embedded market is a tight community. All of these naming convention inconsistencies are likely to be confined to a domain of a few individuals that know the parts intimately. Still, the new Intel Xeon E-2200 embedded series CPUs are another CPU launch ahead of the E-2200 server CPU re-launch we are eagerly awaiting.
