Introducing Intel Embedded Xeon E5-2600 v2 CPUs


Later Q3 2013, Intel is going to release second generation Xeon E5 products for two-socket systems. Branded as E5-2600 v2, the microprocessors will be based on Ivy Bridge-EP core, and boast up to 12 CPU cores and up to 30 MB of L3 cache. Overall, Intel will launch 18 different E5-2600 v2 SKUs, including 4 low-power Xeon E5s unique to embedded market. Their SKUs are E5-2618L v2, E5-2628L v2, E5-2648L v2 and E5-2658L v2.

Advantech PN Model Cores Threads Frequency L3 Cache TDP
TBA Xeon E5-2618L v2 6 12 2 GHz 15 MB 50 Watt
TBA Xeon E5-2628L v2 8 16 1.9 GHz 20 MB 70 Watt
TBA Xeon E5-2648L v2 10 20 1.9 GHz 25 MB 70 Watt
TBA Xeon E5-2658L v2 10 20 2.4 GHz 25 MB 95 Watt

All four CPUs support Hyper-Threading, and Trusted Execution technology. The processors are likely to support Turbo Boost feature, however we do not have information on their Turbo Boost frequencies. The Xeons will be launched in Q3 2013.

PAPS will continually follow up with Intel, once these products are available, we will phase in them ASAP.

SK Hynix Fire Won't Affect Chip Production

On September 4th, fire at SK Hynix’s, plant in Wuxi China has created market panic and worries about the supply for DRAM and Flash Market. Fortunately, in the next day after the fire, Hynix officially announced that “ There has no material damage to fab equipment and will not impact supply volume.”

Before the Hynix fire and in the past few months, PAPS has been noticed Hynix IC shortage, but since overall PC market demand is slowing down, it does not impact DRAM price. To diversify product selection and avoid longer lead-time waiting for Hynix IC memory modules, PAPS suggests following AQD modules as replacement.
