Hi ,

As per the URL below, "Xeon Scalable Processors" has a naming convention and it is possible to understand what Generation (Gen1, 2, 3 or 4)these processors belong to. e.g; "Platinum 8180" belong to Gen1.

But this naming convention does not apply for "Intel® Xeon® Processor E3, E5, and E7 Families". How would the user understand what generation these processors belong to?e.g "E5-2683-V4" processors.

Hello TFMat,


We want to ensure you have a clear understanding of how to determine the generation of our Intel® Xeon® Processor E3, E5, and E7 Families.


The naming convention for our "Intel® Xeon® Processor E3, E5, and E7 Families" is designed to provide crucial information about the processor, though it may not be as straightforward as our "Xeon Scalable Processors" naming convention.


Here's how you can decipher the generation of these processors:


- Each processor's name is an alphanumeric representation of its product line, product family, and version.

- To distinguish between different models within a family, we use an alpha suffix at the end of the processor name, which represents the processor line.

- It's important to note that the version number will not be used in the first processor generation.


For example, a processor with the name "E5-2687W v4" belongs to the E5 family and is from the 4th generation of E5 processors.


We hope this information helps you navigate our processor offerings more effectively. If you have any specific questions or need further assistance, please don't hesitate to get in touch.


Best regards,

Vijay N
