Data Center Graphics with Intel® Xeon® Processor E3 Family

Discover the new Intel® Xeon® processor E3 family

Elevating graphics performance in data centers

Data center–based graphics take a huge step forward with the new Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1200 v3 product family. Featuring new Intel® processor microarchitecture (formerly Haswell), these powerful processors transform server capabilities to create vast new possibilities for your data center. Now you can deliver rich visuals and consistently smooth user experiences, while also streamlining your data center.

Elevating graphics performance in data centers

Optimize graphics in the cloud

New processors from the Intel Xeon processor E3 family are built to support an extended range of cloud-based graphics demands. From virtual hosted desktops to cloud gaming to workstations in the cloud, you can deliver cutting-edge performance per watt and more efficient rendering in the cloud. That’s great news for applications, such as outsourced encoding at scale and device and cloud partitioning.

Stream media to any connected device

Take care of a diverse range of media needs right from your data center. Integrated processor capabilities make smooth work of transcoding various formats for content on demand, user-generated media, live broadcasting, and video conferencing. And by eliminating a hardware component—a discrete graphics card—you’ll capture significant performance efficiencies per watt and benefit from the greater density of video streams.

Run complex video analytics

Go beyond video processing to measure, analyze, and interpret streaming content. For companies investing in big data analytics, new processors deliver the computing power to capture valuable metrics, gain insights, and perform data-intensive tasks like video search indexing, digital surveillance, and automated ads that react to scene changes1.
