It is said that the list of Intel Xeon E-series “Rocket Lake” processors for multi-purpose single-socket (1S) servers has been released by a well-reputed leaker. New processors with up to 8 cores and Intel Xe-LP graphics (select SKUs only) will be part of Intel’s entry-level server and embedded application platform code-named Tatlow. These chips have different core counts and relatively moderate clocks.
Intel has not updated its Xeon E product line since it launched the Xeon E-2200 series of processors based on the Coffee Lake microarchitecture in the second quarter of 2019. This may be because the Comet Lake design does not really bring many advantages to the target application. In contrast, the new Xeon E-2300 series CPU is supported by Cypress Cove micro-architecture, built-in GPU, Xe-LP architecture (optional unit), AVX-512 support, 20 PCIe 4.0 channels and DDR4- 3200 support . Compared with the previous generation of Xeon E-2200 series CPUs, this type of CPU provides significantly higher general-purpose performance, faster PCIe support and improved media processing capabilities (despite problems with media processing capabilities).
List of Intel Xeon E-2300 series “Rocket Lake” CPUs released by points Detective @momomo_us Including 10 models with 65W, 80W and 95W thermal design power (TDP), compatible with the LGA1200 motherboard designed specifically for the Tatlow platform. Please keep in mind that this list comes from an unofficial source, so we cannot verify its legitimacy. At the same time, Intel’s Tatlow platform may be several weeks away from its official release, so the leaked specifications at this time are usually correct.

The Xeon E-2300 series series includes three eight-core, three six-core and four quad-core processors.It’s worth noting that the clock frequency of eight-core and six-core CPUs is Intel Xeon W-1300 Chip, this is logical, because Intel limits the cooling capacity of entry-level servers and the intentions of server manufacturers to ensure the maximum life and reliability of such machines in all possible environments.
The 6 chips from the Intel E-2300 series CPUs have built-in Xe-LP GPUs, although the configuration of these GPUs is unknown (it is safe to say that we are talking about GPU P750 with up to 32 EU or UHD graphics). Previously, Intel integrated its P-series GPUs into Xeon E processors, which basically means driver certification for more than 15 popular CAD and professional graphics programs, which is great for remote entry-level workstations and VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure). ) Very important for applications.
As for media functions, Intel’s Rocket Lake processor has a 12-bit end-to-end video pipeline that supports 4K/8Kp60 playback and Dolby Vision HDR and HEVC and AV1 codec hardware decoding. At the same time, compared with the number of video decoders and encoders in Tiger Lake’s Xe-LP implementation, the number of video decoders and encoders in Rocket Lake’s Xe-LP implementation is smaller. Therefore, although Intel has officially positioned its Tatlow platform as a 2/3 CSP (Content Service Provider), it remains to be seen how competitive the platform is compared with other Intel solutions.
In general, when it comes to Intel’s Tatlow, we should note that the Intel Xeon E-2300 series processor motherboard is set with up to four DIMM slots, up to three PCIe slots, and up to two M.2 slots. And up to eight SATA ports. Tatlow is suitable for multi-purpose servers for small businesses (SMB) or government/enterprise customers (that is, it can support appropriate security functions), and CSP machines that do not need to integrate high-performance media processing functions into their CPUs.
