Intel's Xeon E7 v4 processor empowers companies to analyze your data

New, 4 comments

We live in a data-driven world. The big data era, right? And as such, Intel just debuted its Xeon processor E7 v4 family, which it says comes with the world's largest memory capacity per socket (3TB) and is better at handling real-time analytics. Intel also says the new processors have beefed up security and provide up to 70 percent more encryption performance per core. Basically, data can be encrypted without draining power. These new processors have up to 24 cores on trend with Intel's 10-core i i7-6950X processor for consumers, which it introduced last month. General humans will likely never interact with the new chips, but our favorite companies or employers might, and our data will probably be flowing in and out of them every day. These processors really just want to megatask so get to sharing!
