Intel has released a new series Atom and Xeon of processors to update to its datacentre offerings.
The chips will target markets ranging from storage to energy efficient and high-performance server systems.
For the Atom line, the update will bring a new edition for storage systems. Intel said that the Atom S12x9 will support up to 40 lanes of PCIe 2.0 traffic and will support integrated RAID controlling components.
Additionally, Intel provided an update on its upcoming Atom "Avoton" and "Rangeley" processor lines. Due to arrive in the second half of the year, the 64-bit system on a chip (SoC) processor will be built with 22nm fabrication and will also be designed with models to power network device hardware.
For the Xeon line, the company unveiled the high-end Ivy Bridge-Ex chip. The processor, set to hit the market in the closing months of this year, will also support up to 12TB of memory and will be designed for both high performance and maximum uptime.
Set to hit the market in the third quarter 2013 is the Xeon Ivy Bridge E5 line. The server chips will introduce the 22nm fabrication process and will feature new security features along with better power consumption and performance.
For the lower power market, Intel is pitching the Xeon E-3 line. The company said that the 22nm chips, slated for arrival by mid-year, will be designed for media server applications and will run at a low 13w power consumption.
In preparation for the release, Intel said that it will be releasing developer tools for both Linux and Windows media server systems.
