Intel has launched a chipset especially designed for edge computing, fit for the Internet of Things (IoT), including smart cars.
The Intel Xeon D-2100 SoC boasts up to 18 Skylake-server cores and is set up for as many as four 10Gbps Ethernet ports. It comes with up to 100Gbps of built-in decryption and encryption acceleration. Some reports said the chip will only use between 60W and 110W of power, depending on its implementations. If the speed of the chip is comparable to others sold under the “Skylake” model designation, the Xeon D-2100 should be more than capable of handling all of its target applications.
