The E7-8894 v4 is the latest and greatest Xeon processor from Intel and retails at an astounding $8,898.
However, being that it’s a professional-grade piece of hardware and not exactly built for the common man, the price tag isn’t all that surprising.
In fact, the processor was specifically designed for companies running servers with sizable databases and has already shattered some impressive performance benchmark records.
E7-8894 v4 Specs:
- 24 core processor
- 60MB of cache that runs at 2.4GHz
- Max clock speed of 3.4GHz
In addition to its ability to perform highly with large database workloads, the new Xeon processor is perfect for enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), online transaction processing (OLT) and in-memory analytics.
