Intel’s Xeon chips are coming to notebooks as firm announces E3-1500M v5 product family

Intel is going to be slamming its Xeon processors into laptops with a new range of chips built on Skylake architecture.

“Content editors, designers and engineers take note,” boasted Intel in its rather brief announcement.

Ground up

The firm, hot from revealing its plans for a new type of memory called 3D XPoint, outlined how its Xeon E3-1500M v5 series of chips are designed from the ground up for laptops and notebooks.

intelAccording to Intel, the chips bring “high precision computing horsepower to a notebook and supports key features like error-correcting code memory for enhanced reliability while running critical workstation applications”.

The chips will obviously come with certified drivers for engineering applications, and support hardware-assisted security, manageability and productivity capabilities of Intel vPro technology.

“Mobile workstations featuring Intel Xeon processors as well as Thunderbolt 3 technology will be available this fall,” said the firm.

These Xeon chips have only be available before in Mac Pro desktops, devices that will set you back well over £2,000, so the news shows how Skylake is going to start trickling down into more affordable devices.
