Intel To Bring Xeon Processors to Notebook PCs


Intel_Inside_XeonIntel’s Xeon processors have powered servers for years, but their performance and security features are also coming to notebooks soon. The chip giant has announced that it will be delivering Xeon-based notebook processors for the first time this fall. The Xeon Processor E3-1500M v5 family will be based on the new Skylake 14nm architecture and will be shipping in high-powered laptops starting this fall. Designed from the ground up for mobile workstations, the Intel Xeon processor E3-1500M v5 product family brings computing horsepower to a notebook and supports features like error-correcting code memory for reliability while running critical workstation applications.

The new products will be available with certified drivers for key engineering applications and support the hardware-assisted security, manageability and productivity capabilities of Intel vPro technology. Mobile workstations featuring Intel Xeon processors as well as Thunderbolt 3 technology will be available this fall.

What the company hasn’t mentioned are the specs for the E3-1500M v5 processors, though we know that Skylake should bring the usual faster performance (including integrated graphics) and improved battery life that each new iteration of Intel’s Core processors delivers.
