Looking for a well-rounded and powerful processor? The month of March marked the third year anniversary of the Intel Xeon E3-1270 V6 processors and we at ServerMania have been offering this powerhouse since its initial release. Since then, it’s remained one of our most popular and sought after dedicated servers.

The Xeon E3-1270 V6 comes from the Kaby Lake 14 nm family of processors. The Intel Xeon E3 range of processors is excellent for small businesses’ essential performance by making available small servers, powerful cloud and mobile workstations, entry-level workstations, and edge computing services. With the Intel Xeon E3 range, Intel struck a balance between the enterprise-level CPUs and the Core family of CPUs offering a bit of both worlds to the businesses, lowering the price to give great value for money.

The Intel Xeon E3-1270 V6 Processor

The Intel Xeon E3-1270 V6 is a 64-bit, eight-thread, quad-core, 8 MB L3 cache, 3.8 GHz processor, which supports a Turbo Boost frequency of max. 4.2 GHz. The processor boasts of low Thermal Design Power (TDP) – 72 W. In addition to that, dedicated Intel Xeon E3-1270 V6 servers are also built to handle IoT-specific workloads. Although it doesn’t come with integrated graphics, it performs reasonably well with transcoding and streaming use cases.

CPU Features

We think that the Intel Xeon E3-1270 V6 CPU (Central Processing Unit) is excellent for cloud server hosting and dedicated server hosting services. The Xeon E family of CPUs has been optimized to run smaller servers making the computing capabilities more accessible to small businesses worldwide. Some important details of the Intel E3-1270 V6 product have been listed as follows:

Deciding on a Server

ServerMania has launched a range of unmetered dedicated servers with other similar product offerings from the Intel Xeon range of processors. We understand that choosing suitable servers can be a daunting task, especially if you start up your business or move it to create an online presence for the first time. It would be best if you considered many factors while making this choice, like server specifications, processor form factor, benchmarks, server price, CPU cores, cache, memory, turbo, security features, data transfer speeds, support for graphics, power consumption, support for extensions, and so on.

To save you from the trouble of going through all these things yourself, we have created a guide to choosing small business servers, which may help you learn more about what to look for when deciding where to host your business applications. We hope that it will help you make a better decision.
