Intel’s New Xeon E7 v4 Processors Target Analytic Workloads
Intel has launched their new processor and with its launch, Intel seems to be taking a different direction. Intel has moved quite a bit from the conventional PC and has gone towards drones and analytics. In today’s worlds where millions of transactions are taking place every second and terabytes of data is being transferred there is no surprise that Intel’s New Xeon E7 v4 targets analytic workloads.
Intel’s new Xeon processor family offers more support in terms of memory than the previous generation processors with up to 24 terabytes. It can also handle twice as many analytic queries than former generation processors that give it an edge. With such features on board, it seems fitting that Intel’s new Xeon E7 v4 targets analytic workloads.
Intel’s partners are starting to roll out these new processors into the market and we will be seeing them soon. With more and more workload being shifted to the cloud, it is unclear whether or not companies would look to Intel’s new Xeon E7 v4 chip as a solution to their problem. Looking at the numbers, the server market is at a slow decline right now. This might not be the right move for Intel right now keeping in mind that this is the direct IBM has taken with their Power 8.
We know that Intel’s New Xeon E7 v4 Targets Analytic Workloads and it is a step forward for the company but will it be enough to cut it and compete against IBMs offering? Will it go against the cloud? Plenty of things to consider at the moment I would think.
Nevertheless Intel has been at it for some time now and they know what they want to do in the near future. We will have to wait and see how Intel’s new Xeon E7 v4 works in the real world under real analytic workloads.
