    Intel Xeon E-2100 Coffee Lake processor family announced

    There are ten new four- and six-core processors targeted at entry-level workstations.
    Read more.

    Re: Intel Xeon E-2100 Coffee Lake processor family announced

    So what is this, an upgrade to the Xeon-W, a cannibalisation of the i9 Kaby Lake range or under performing last gen tweaked E3s?

    This range doesn't make much sense to me, a Xeon E3 with UHD with 6/12 and 2 channel ECC? Is this an upgraded Skylake-X with ECC support?

    Makes very little sense to me...

    These are the replacement line for the Xeon E3 CPUs which were consumer socket based Xeons.

    Interestingly enough there are 4C/8T options too.

    But ECC

    Edit: One thing I've just though of, the Ryzen series all have ECC support so you could get a 4C/4T Ryzen 2300X (when release comes about) that may have a comparable capability but for far less. The only benefits I can see of the Xeons are the AVX-512 Instruction Set (which I can't wait till something more open source takes over and shafts Intel).

    They typo'd Xeon E3 1200 series. And then stuck with it because bigger numbers must sound cooler. It's basically E3-1200 v7 under a different name. Same LGA1151 "consumer" socket, nothing like the -X, -E, -EX, or -EP series.

    My understanding is that they dont have ECC support, they just dont have support disabled. So it isnt "certified" and tested to work with ECC, but with the right motherboard it will work anyway.
