The price, which is as high as the model number of the processor, comes with other impressive specifications. The Xeon E7-8894 v4 has 24 CPU cores (48 threads) operating at a frequency of 2.4 GHz and can reach 3.4 GHz in turbo mode. It’s no less than 60MB of L3 cache and a not-so-absurd TDP of 165 watts. It is targeted to high-performance servers and has a DDR3-1600 and DDR4-1866 memory controller in quad-channel, being able to support up to 3 terabytes of RAM per processor. Without the help of special third-party controllers, you can assemble a little monster with up to eight Xeon E7-8894 v4 – that is, if you have at least 222 thousand dollars to spend on only small pieces of silicon. The new processor has broken a series of benchmark records, according to Intel. In SPECint_rate_base2006, a Lenovo server with eight Xeon E7-8894 v4 chips has reached 7,210 points, a number far out of the picture – a 6th generation Core i5 or i7 for desktops typically does 150 to 250 points in that test. So, you can say that this chip is a little monster or a beast.
