Intel Atom S1200

Intel has introduced the Atom S1200 product family, delivering what it says is the world’s first low-power, 64-bit server-class system-on-chip for high-density microservers, as well as a new class of energy-efficient storage and networking systems. The company says the microprocessor features essential capabilities to achieve server-class reliability, manageability and cost effectiveness.

'The data centre continues to evolve into unique segments and Intel continues to be a leader in these transitions,' said Diane Bryant, vice president and general manager of the datacenter and connected systems group at Intel.

'We recognised several years ago the need for a new breed of high-density, energy-efficient servers and other data centre equipment. Today, we are delivering the industry’s only six-watt SoC that has key data centre features, continuing our commitment to help lead these segments.'
