Up to 28 cores

6 channels

48 PCIe lanes

Intel Optane™ supported

Intel Omni-Path supported

The Intel Xeon Scalable platform brings improved features and functionality at the host and fabric level. These enable performance improvements natively on chip and for future extensibility through compute, network and storage peripherals.

Memory Optimization

  • Memory speed of up to 2666MHz
  • Up to 12 DIMMs per socket


  • Built in support for VROC
  • Intel Optane supported


  • Intel Omni-Path supported

Increased Memory Performance

  • The CPU architecture allows for up to 6 memory channels per socket and a bandwidth of up to 2666MHz.
  • The architecture is future-ready with the potential to support Apache Pass DIMM.
  • Memory capacity benefits with up to available 12 DIMMs per socket, which represents a 50% generation-on-generation increase.

Innovative Storage, Security and Networking



  • Innovative storage options through Intel Optane™ low-latency, non-volatile design.
  • NVMe SKU systems ship with a Virtual Raid-On-CPU (VROC) module as standard to enable software raid on connected U.2 SSDs
  • Support for SATA-DOM is available to allow for standalone boot and diagnostics direct through SATA connections on the board.


  • Integrated QAT for improved compression and security with software. On the hardware side, extra encryption on-board is enabled by TPMs available from GIGABYTE.


  • Fully compatible with Mellanox networking products.
  • Improved networking through Omni-Path interconnect fabric as a CPU-integrated or standalone device.
