Additionally, the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family supports enhanced memory speeds, with configurations of robust Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory up to 64 GB DDR at 2400 MHz.

In addition to enhanced processor performance and support for fast memory, the latest Intel HD graphics P630 is available on select products within the Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family. The value and performance of Intel HD graphics P630 is reflected in an up to three times graphics performance improvement when compared with an Intel Xeon processor E3-1280 v2.

The Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v6 product family includes hardware-enhanced security features such as Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX) to help protect sensitive data like encryption keys used for communications over the internet from unauthorized access or modification. Intel Authenticate Solution offers customizable multifactor authentication to help protect access to the most sensitive company data.
