Intel Launches Atom S1200 Processor Series; Featuring Low-Power, 64-bit SoC

Intel has announced the Atom S1200 processor series that delivers low-power, 64-bit system-on-a-chip (SoC) designed specifically for the server market. These Atom processors are ideal for high-density microservers, storage and networking systems.

Intel has claimed the Atom S1200 SoC is the world's first 6-watt server-class processor. The 64-bit SoC comes in three SKUs with clock speeds ranging from 1.6GHz to 2.0GHz. The SoC features two physical cores and supports HyperThreading up to a  total of four threads. The processor also includes a memory controller supporting up to 8GB of DDR3 memory and eight lanes of PCIe 2.0. With support for Intel Virtualization Technologies and Error-Correcting Code (ECC) for higher reliability, it is truly Intel's first Atom SoC built for servers and datacenters.

Looking ahead, Intel is promising more energy-efficient processors in the form of the next-generation Atom 'Avoton' processor that will be available in 2013. The upcoming SoC will use the same 22nm fabrication process and 3D Tri-gate transistors as the Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs, with an emphasis on power savings. In 2014, we may be able to witness Atom as well as low-power Xeon processors manufactured with 14nm fabrication technology. The Intel Atom processor S1200 is currently available with an SRP starting at US$54 in quantities of 1,000 units. For more information, please visit this link at Intel's press room.
