According to recent researches, streaming videos have taken up a larger and larger share of the network traffic. It is predicted that videos may occupy almost 80 percent of the traffic at the time of this writing. That means, users of desktops, laptops and mobile devices are demanding higher quality of streaming videos. To address the demand, Intel® has launched the 6th Generation Core™ processors (codenamed “Skylake”), which integrates ultra processing power in graphics and data. The promise of the new processors will save server makers the TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) by delivering improved graphic streaming quality without the space-taking, powerconsuming PCI-e based graphic cards. On the other hand, servers powered by the 6th Generation Intel® Core™ improve serviceability at the competitive edge.
The 6th Generation Intel® Core™ processors, formerly codenamed “Skylake”, is in the new microarchitecture design using the 14nm manufacturing process. According to Intel®, the launch of the 6th Generation CPU serves as the “Tock” of its “Tick-Tock” roadmap. Some of the major technology break through at a system performance level is the addition of 4K-enabled graphics resolution and the adoption of DDR4 memory for mainstream adoption and power efficiency.
