Supermicro updated its servers with the new Intel Xeon E-2200 Series for Servers. The company’s platforms from the Xeon E-2100 series can be updated to support the newest processor series with a BIOS upgrade. For those that already utilize the Xeon E ecosystem, this means that one can access the new 8-core CPUs such as the Intel Xeon E-2288G we reviewed. Adding two cores, or 33% to the total core count and hitting up to 5GHz on the CPU’s clock speeds is a significant improvement. In our launch coverage, we noted that these new 8-core CPUs now can attack the lower-end of the Intel Xeon Scalable market. They will be especially popular in the dedicated hosting market and some edge deployments.

These new platforms will support up to 128GB of memory as well, furthering their ability to address market needs beyond just higher core counts.

Patrick, our Editor-in-Chief gave a quote for Supermicro’s press release since we tested the company’s products in this segment:

“In our reviews, we found the Intel Xeon E-2100 series in Supermicro servers accelerated innovation in the segment at a greater pace than we have seen in almost a decade,” said Patrick Kennedy, Editor-in-Chief, ServeTheHome. “Our testing with Supermicro’s platforms and the new Intel Xeon E-2200 series processors shows this rapid pace of innovation continuing with even more performance in proven servers and workstations.”
