Xeon Silver 4116T is a 64-bitdodeca-corex86 dual-socket mid-range performance server microprocessor introduced by Intel in mid-2017. The Silver 4116T, which is based on the server configuration of the Skylake microarchitecture and is manufactured on a 14 nm process, sports 1 AVX-512FMA unit as well as two Ultra Path Interconnect links. This microprocessor, which operates at 2.1 GHz with a TDP of 85 W and a turbo boost frequency of up to 3 GHz, supports up 768 GiB of hexa-channel DDR4-2400 ECC memory.
This specific model (T) has 10 years extended life guarantees designed to be NEBS-friendly for use in NEBS-complaint applications.
Cache is a hardware component containing a relatively small and extremely fast memory designed to speed up the performance of a CPU by preparing ahead of time the data it needs to read from a relatively slower medium such as main memory.
The organization and amount of cache can have a large impact on the performance, power consumption, die size, and consequently cost of the IC.
Cache is specified by its size, number of sets, associativity, block size, sub-block size, and fetch and write-back policies.
