The new Intel Xeon microprocessors V3 Series E3-1200 “Haswell-DT”

Yesterday pleasantly surprised when overtaking a bit microprocessors debut of its new fourth-generation Core “Haswell” , microprocessors covering a wide range of home and business segments. But today presents its new microprocessors “Haswell-DT” for servers and workstations socket.

Features of the new Xeon E3-1200 V3 Series “Haswell-DT”

Since the new Intel Xeon microprocessors V3 E3-1200 Series are based on Haswell-DT, the same variant of used in the fourth microprocessors for desktop socket LGA 1150, share many of their characteristics, performance enhancement and new instruction sets, but also bring some features not present in their desktop brethren, among which are:

  • Trusted Execution Technology (security for enterprise environments).
  • VT-x with Extended Page Tables “EFA” (acceleration for virtualized applications that make heavy use of memory).
  • Memory controller with error correction “ECC” (greater solidity and stability in critical environments).

Integrated Intel HD Graphics P4600 “GT2″

Unlike Intel HD Graphics integrated graphics “GT2″ present in the desktop editions, the integrated Intel HD graphics P4600 “GT2″ have a much more robust support in graphic and memory controller, taking advantage of the error correction ” “and professional graphic extensions to provide greater performance, quality and stability of graphic intensive applications to workstations.

It should be noted that not all Xeon E3-1200 microprocessors V3 Series “Haswell-DT” possess integrated graphics, as for now we have six models that do not have integrated graphics.

The new chipsets “Lynx Point”

The Intel C 226 “Lynx Point” are virtually the same chipsets 8 Series “Lynx Point” existing for fourth-generation Core microprocessors for desktops “Haswell-DT”, but active bring some features not present in the desktop version as:

  • Active Management Technology “AMT” 8.0 (control and remote administration).
  • I / O Acceleration Technology (greater overall performance and virtualized environments).

The Xeon E3-1200 microprocessors V3 Series “Haswell-DT” next to the C226 chipsets “Lynx Point” up the new server platform.

Xeon E3-1200 microprocessors V3 Series “Haswell-DT”

Initially Intel has presented a total of 12 models of its new microprocessors six-six integrated graphics without integrated graphics, which are detailed below:

Of the new microprocessors, Xeon and Xeon E3-E3-1230V3 1270V3 stand at relatively inexpensive prices and to have active features like HyperThreading, and since the chipset and the socket used are virtually the same as those used in microprocessors Core “Haswell-DT”, it is possible to install them on a motherboard based on the chipset 8 Series (although you lose features like ECC and other).

Intel is expected to introduce more models later, including one with a TDP of just 13W .


The new Xeon E3-1200 V3 Series “Haswell-DT” Intel is a very interesting alternative for users looking for a budget server or a workstation capable of handling large intensive 3D modeling applications without requiring expensive video cards Nvidia Quadro or AMD FirePro.

As mentioned a few paragraphs above, these microprocessors can also become a very interesting alternative for desktop users, enabling them to acquire a with eight processing threads Prices from U.S. $ 250.
