Intel’s New Speed Select and Single-Socket Optimized CPUs

Recommended Posts

Intel has taken an interesting path with their 2ndgeneration Xeon processors by tweaking them for specific, abet niche workloads. Speed Select CPUS (Y) are interesting technology, however there is a slight price increase for this capability and it does take a system reboot to have it take affect; it will be interesting to see if the use cases for Speed Select CPUs are strong enough for companies to pay a premium for it and tolerate a reboot needed to switch over from a high core count CPU to a lower core count but faster CPU.

I've asked for clarity on this as obviously Intel provided both sets of info. Thanks for pointing this out.
