Network Specifications on new Intel Xeon D-Processors

I was doing a comparison between an older (2016) Intel Xeon D-Processor and newer 2022 models (excel sheet attached).

 

I noticed that the newer models  do not list what networking interfaces are supported (i.e., SFI, KR, KX, 100Base-T, 10GBase-T). I am interested in knowing these interfaces to do a true comparison

Hello @farah ,

 

Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.

 

I have checked your excel sheet and ark information, so you are right that newer processors than  Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1539 don't show this information; however let me clarify that "SFI, KR, KX, 1000Base-T, 10GBase-T" are just examples of interfaces that an OEM can add to a given board design with this CPU (is not like the CPU supports this list only ); Intel can only assure about the CPU integrated LAN interface, but not for additional network devices that a given board might support. Additional devices support such networking are all dependant on the PCIe interfaces, pretty much all PCIe 2.0 and 3.0 are supported. 

 

Best regards,
