Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable Family (Skylake)

Intel Xeon Platinum InsideIntel Xeon Scalable processors (Skylake) deliver high levels of compute density, scalability, and storage and memory capacity and feature multiple enhancements for HPC workloads.

The new processors deliver advanced performance with up to 28 cores and significant increases in memory and I/O bandwidth (with six memory channels and 48 PCIe lanes) to handle extremely large compute- and data-intensive workloads. On this page you will meet the next generation of processors. We're highlighting the key benefits and features, the full SKU list and our systems that support Skylake. We also offer a transition tool to help you find the Skylake CPU that is most comparable to the previous generation ("Broadwell").
