Made for Advanced Workstation Professionals in a Single Socket Solution
The Intel Xeon W-3200 Processors are purpose-built and optimized for advanced workstation professionals in a single-socket solution. These processors are developed for heavily and lightly threaded, I/O-intensive workloads across architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC), media and entertainment (M&E), artificial intelligence (AI), Oil & gas, and data sciences.

Outstanding Performance

Consume less time waiting and more time creating. Fast visualization, simulations and rendering with up to 28 cores, 56 threads, and 2 TB DDR4 RDIMM in a single-socket solution. Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 for performance increase when you need it and accelerate Al performance with the new Intel® Deep Learning Boost.
From its new Intel® Mesh Architecture and widely extended resources to its hardware-accelerating technologies like Intel® AVX-512, Intel® Xeon® W-3200 processor-based workstation platforms allow a new level of excellent performance. Whether your application scales based on processor frequency or the number of cores and threads, Intel® Xeon® W-3200 processors provide a flexible range of options with processor increased frequencies of up to 4.6 GHz Intel® Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0.

Expanding Platform Capabilities

Total of 84 platform PCI Express* 3.0 lanes for more I/O throughput for graphics, storage, and network expandability. Enhanced media performance with Intel® VROC.

Reliable, Manageable, More Secure

Improved accuracy in designs and simulations by eliminating workloads or system crashes with built-in Error Correction Code (ECC) hardware circuitry. Ensure platform and data integrity with built-in RAS. Use hardware-enhanced security features, identity protection technology and manageability with the Intel® vPro™ platform.

Pervasive Breakthrough Performance

In the Inte® Xeon® W-3200 processor platform, the Intel® Mesh Architecture delivers up to 28 cores, the Last Level Cache (LLC), a total of 6 DDR4 memory channels, and 64 processor PCIe* lanes are shared among all the cores, giving access to extensive resources across the entire die and creating dynamic scalability without sacrificing performance.

More Protected Data

Assist safeguard workstations from potential crashes and changes in data due to single-bit errors. Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory is a platform technology that automatically detects and repairs single-bit errors on the fly to help keep heavily, or lightly workloads running reliably and free of data corruption delivering accuracy to simulations and designs.

Data Integrity

Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) is a built-in platform feature that ensures platform and data integrity via fault avoidance, detection, correction/recovery, and failure identification and reconfiguration.

Security and Manageability

Intel® vPro™ technology is supported on the Intel® Xeon® W-3200 processor-based platform and delivers hardware-enhanced security features, identity protection technology and manageability.
Professional Workstation Storage Support

A balanced workstation platform goes beyond raw compute, memory, and network performance. Storage innovations can drive significant improvements in the efficiency and performance of data-hungry workloads. Intel® Xeon® W-3200 processors feature key storage enhancements delivering high throughput and low latency to break through data access bottlenecks.

Intel® Software for Storage

• Intel® Virtual RAID on CPU (Intel® VROC): Directly attach NVMe* SSDs to the CPU PCIe lanes to unleash NVMe* RAID performance at low power and low T CO.
• Intel® Rapid Storage Technology for SATA (Intel® RSTe): Dynamic storage accelerator accelerates the performance of your SSD by dynamically adjusting system power management policies to deliver faster performance during heavy multitasking compared to default power management.
• Intel® Cache Acceleration Software (Intel® CAS): A cost-effective way to accelerate applications, combined with Inter Solid State Drives, Intel® CAS interoperates with system memory to create a multilevel cache that automatically determines the best cache level for operational data.
