The HPE Xeon Gold 6254 processor is a high-performance CPU designed for use in enterprise-level servers. It features 18 cores and a clock speed of 3.1GHz, making it capable of handling even the most demanding workloads. In this article, we will take a closer look at the technical specifications of this processor, including its cache size, UPI speed, and power consumption.
Processor Model and Type
The HPE Xeon Gold 6254 processor is part of the Xeon Gold family of CPUs, which are designed for use in data centers and other enterprise-level computing environments. It is a server-grade CPU, meaning that it is optimized for performance, reliability, and scalability. The processor is based on the Intel Xeon Scalable Processor architecture, which is designed to deliver improved performance and efficiency compared to previous generations of Xeon processors.
Number of Cores and Threads
One of the key features of the HPE Xeon Gold 6254 processor is its 18 cores. Each core is capable of executing instructions in parallel, which means that the CPU can handle multiple tasks simultaneously. This is important for applications that require a high degree of parallelism, such as scientific computing, data analytics, and machine learning. In addition to its 18 cores, the processor also supports Intel Hyper-Threading technology, which allows each core to execute two threads simultaneously. This effectively doubles the number of threads that the processor can handle, which can further improve performance in multithreaded applications.
The clock speed of a processor refers to the number of cycles per second that the CPU can execute. The HPE Xeon Gold 6254 processor has a base clock speed of 3.1GHz, which means that it can execute 3.1 billion cycles per second. This is a relatively high clock speed, which makes the processor well-suited for applications that require fast single-threaded performance. However, it is worth noting that the clock speed of a processor is not the only factor that determines its overall performance. Other factors, such as the number of cores, cache size, and memory bandwidth, can also have a significant impact on performance.
The cache is a small amount of memory that is built into the processor. It is used to store frequently accessed data and instructions, which can be retrieved more quickly than if they were stored in main memory. The HPE Xeon Gold 6254 processor has a total cache size of 25MB. This includes 18MB of L2 cache and 25MB of L3 cache. The L2 cache is split into 18 slices, with each core having access to its own slice. This helps to reduce cache contention and improve performance in multithreaded applications.
The UPI (Ultra Path Interconnect) speed is the speed at which the processor communicates with other processors in a multi-socket system. The HPE Xeon Gold 6254 processor has a UPI speed of 10.4GT/s (gigatransfers per second). This is a relatively high UPI speed, which means that the processor can communicate with other processors in the system quickly and efficiently. This is important for applications that require high levels of interprocessor communication, such as distributed computing and parallel processing.
The socket type is the physical interface between the processor and the motherboard. The HPE Xeon Gold 6254 processor uses the FCLGA3647 socket, which is a type of socket that is designed for use with high-end server CPUs. The socket has 3647 pins, which allows it to provide a high level of connectivity between the CPU and the motherboard. This helps to ensure that the CPU can communicate with other components in the system quickly and efficiently.
