Intel’s Xeon processors are chips designed for enterprise servers, workstations, and other computers. Up until now they haven’t been available for notebooks. But Intel has announced that’ll change in the coming months.

The company says the first Xeon chips for laptops are on the way.

Intel isn’t providing detailed specs yet, but here’s what we know so far. The new chips will be part of the Intel Xeon Processor E3-1500M v5 product family, and they’ll be 14nm processors based on Skylake architecture (the same technology used in 6th-gen Intel Core family processors).

As Xeon chips, they’ll have enterprise-level features including hardware-assisted security, error-correcting code memory, Intel vPro, and support for Thunderbolt 3, among other things.

The processors are designed for mobile workstations… which means they’ll most likely be found in upcoming computers that favor performance over energy efficiency. But Intel hasn’t made any announcements about the power consumption, speed, core count, or other features yet.

    1. There are a number of Xeons that have a TDP of less than 45W. Put something from NoFan on them and they’ll work great fanless. My next workstation build will be like this.

    2. The Intel Avoton chips are kinda what youre looking for. The highest model is the C2750, an 8 core model.

      They are baytrail-based. Support ECC ram, and have virtualization features (but not vPro).

      They’re available fanless too.

  1. Needn’t wait, there’s a EUROCOM lineup of Xeon “laptops” if you happen to have 5 to 20 thousand disposable dollars.

    1. Yes! I’m waiting for Intel to make a taller NUC with a Xeon-D or perhaps one of these laptop Xeons.

      Something with 4x drive bays, support for ECC ram, and vPro.

      Maybe if Intel ever releases the Sub-1L PC form factor, we might see something like that.

      1. What’s the benefit with vPro in your eyes? Except enterprise features regarding remote managment. Features which I don’t see are the main priorities with a NUC.
