The Intel® Xeon® Platinum 8260 Processor is a server-grade CPU designed for high-performance computing and data center applications. Here are some key details about this processor:
Architecture: The Xeon Platinum 8260 is based on the Intel x86-64 microarchitecture, specifically the Cascade Lake architecture.
Core Count: It features 24 processor cores. Each core can handle two simultaneous threads using Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology, resulting in a total of 48 threads.
Clock Speed: The base clock speed of the Xeon Platinum 8260 is 2.4 GHz. It also supports Intel Turbo Boost technology, which can dynamically increase the clock speed up to 3.9 GHz, depending on the workload.
Cache: It has a total of 35.75 MB of cache memory, which is divided into L1, L2, and L3 caches. The L1 cache consists of separate instruction and data caches for each core, while the L2 cache is shared among the cores. The L3 cache is a larger, shared cache that provides additional data storage closer to the cores.
Memory Support: The processor supports DDR4 memory technology.
TDP (Thermal Design Power): The Xeon Platinum 8260 has a TDP of 165 watts. This value represents the maximum amount of heat generated by the processor under typical operating conditions and helps determine the cooling requirements for the server system.
Socket and Platform Compatibility: The Xeon Platinum 8260 uses the LGA 3647 socket. It is designed for server platforms and is typically used in dual-socket configurations, allowing up to 48 cores and 96 threads per system.
Features: The Xeon Platinum 8260 supports various server-oriented features such as ECC (Error-Correcting Code) memory, virtualization technologies (Intel VT-x and VT-d), and advanced reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features.
