    Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family becomes available

    Kaby Lake Xeons continue to use socket 1151, and C232 and C236 chipsets.

    But will they too require Windows 10?

    Can't believe the enterprise sector will be happy having Windows 10 foisted upon them.

    Sooner or later, the enterprise sector is going to have to adopt Windows 10 or migrate to a different ecosystem.

    End of support dates are looming ever closer.......

    Back OT: I was hoping they may have relaxed the chipset requirements for these seeing as Zen is out now......obviously intel just want to keep on fracturing their products into separate little ecosystems

    I would be that these processors are for fairly unique workstations more than standard builds in Enterprises. They're too powerful for most users and not powerful enough to get put into servers.

    They are for run-of-the-mill workstations, which means applications like CAD/CAM, development etc. I'm typing this sitting in front of my workstation using an E3-1245 v2 at work.

    Common office tasks are usually done on simple desktop pcs, albeit often using a "business" Q-series chipset for the management options.

    What is the point of the E3-1280v6!!?? $300 more than then E3-1270v6 for 0.1GHz more, absolutely crazy!!

    It's good to know that the xeon chips have the professional-class P designator slapped on their graphics bit - this is clearly just as important as EEC support

    Intel has to do something to fend of the Zen competition. Thanks to AMD we have a sudden choice at more reasonably priced products after the Intel rip off era.

    Even better is has no onboard video processor, so has less functionality... bargin.

    Given they're the same price, performance, and socket as standard desktop i5's and i7's, I'd hardly say they're unique or too powerful.

    And if <10w Atom and ARM processors are powerful enough to get put in servers, I'd say that's also nonsense.

    Anyone who has suffered from memory errors due to faulty chips (and possibly has lost important work because of it) would beg to challenge your implied opinion that ECC is useless.

    My suggestion (however terribly written) was that workstations like this aren't rolled out en-masse in an Enterprise with a standard build.

    I would suspect that your company has less than a few hundred workstations running like this, and probably not all with the same build they run out to non-power users. This is where things like OS support become a pain.

    I'm not calling ECC useless, I'm calling this table useless:

    Re: Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family becomes available

    These are not competition to the current Ryzen 1700/1800 processors, different market segment. Xeon E3 is lower down the pecking order - pretty much all of these are cheaper than Ryzen, the smaller 4/6 core Ryzens that are launching next month are the competition for Xeon E3 and we don't know how they compare yet. Xeon E5-16xx use the similar Broadwell cores as the Intel HEDT CPUs, they are the competition for current Ryzen 1700/1800.

    I don't see the point in the Xeon E3-1280 v6, totally priced outside it's segment - can't see many of those getting sold. I don't really see the point in 1270/75 either, 100MHz bumps over the 1240/45, don't justify the extra cost. I've only ever bought the 1230 as a baseline CPU for low end servers and they do quite well in that role, the 1220 lacks HT but is now £50 cheaper so that's probably a reasonable tradeoff.
