Intel® Xeon®, Intel® Core™, and Intel® Pentium® Processors with Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series

Formerly Crystal Forest/Gladden Refresh (Ivy Bridge Gladden + Cave Creek)

Based on Intel® microarchitecture (formerly Ivy Bridge) and manufactured on 22-nm process technology, these processors are designed for single-socket systems with options of two and four cores, with a thermal design power (TDP) range of 15W to 40W.  When paired with the Intel® Communications Chipset 89xx Series, this platform extends the scalability of Intel® architecture into smaller footprint communications and intelligent systems without sacrificing standard industry features such as workload acceleration, multicore processing, and virtualization

  • This platform addresses the needs of thermally constrained solutions, such as branch office routers, midrange security appliances, network access, media servers, communications servers, small cells, control plane processing, and storage.
  • By scaling the powerful Intel architecture instruction set into lower-power network nodes, the platform enables software reuse, power management, and software-based load balancing.
  • Using the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (Intel® DPDK), platform packet processing speeds can be improved to handle increasing network traffic data rates and associated control and signaling requirements.

Product and Performance Information

open

1. Intel processor numbers are not a measure of performance. Processor numbers differentiate features within each processor family, not across different processor families. See www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/processors/processor-numbers.html for details.

2. Execute Disable Bit requires an Execute Disable Bit enabled system. Check with your PC manufacturer to determine whether your system delivers this functionality. For more information, visit www.intel.com/technology/xdbit/index.htm.

3. Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology (Intel® HT Technology) requires an Intel HT Technology enabled system; check with your PC manufacturer. Performance will vary depending on the specific hardware and software used. Not available on the previous generation Intel® Core™ i5-750. For more information including details on which processors support Intel HT Technology, visit http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/hyper-threading/hyper-threading-technology.html.

4. Intel® vPro™ technology is sophisticated and requires setup and activation. Availability of features and results will depend upon the setup and configuration of your hardware, software, and IT environment. To learn more visit: www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/architecture-and-technology/vpro/intel-vpro-technology-developer.html
