More Details of Intel Denverton Server Processor Arrive, Launches in Second Half of 2016
Intel is set to ship its next low power server processor, called Denverton, next year. Atom C2000-series will be axed in favor of Harrisonville Platform and the next generation Atom SoCs, code-named Denverton and Denverton-NS.
Intel will use 14nm technology and will release these processors under C3xxx model number. Obviously, Deverton will feature many improvements over its predecessors. One or more CPU modules will be used and each will have two cores at its disposal.
Both CPUs will share a cache and the number of modules will be increased to 8 while the cores will go up to 16. Size of shared L2 cache will get a boost as well as each pair of core will have 2MB, that adds up to 16MB per chip.
2400MHz DDR4 memory is supported, while users can expect USB 3.0 and 10GB Ethernet support. Denverton is expected to roll out sometime in 2016.
The Denverton server processors are planned to launch in the second half of 2016.
