Intel's aiming to bring big core performance and intelligence in a microserver form factor with its new Xeon D family of processors, the company's first ever Xeon-based System-on-Chip (SoC). That sound you hear may be ARM's pulse skipping a beat, as Intel jams a mighty intimidating wrench into the rival chip maker's plans to dominate the microserver market.
The Xeon D line is built on Intel's 14nm process technology and combines the performance and intelligence of its regular Xeon chips with the size and power savings of an SoC. According to Intel, Xeon D delivers up to 3.4x faster performance node and up to 1.7x better performance per watt compared to the company's Atom C2750, which is part of Intel's second-generation 64-bit SoC family. Xeon D is the third generation and it's actually based on Intel's 14nm Broadwell architecture.
