Intel Xeon Platinum 8280L specs

Intel Xeon Platinum 8280L review will present you all the benefits and drawbacks of the model’s performance and speed. To define the best CPU, we recommend checking benchmark results and compare them to another model.

CPU Cores and Base Frequency

Technical characteristics presented below are basic and influence mostly the general performance while working and playing games. It is based on the “more-better” principle.

Frequency: 2.70 GHz   CPU Cores: 28
Turbo (1 Core): 4.00 GHz   CPU Threads: 56
Hyperthreading: Yes   Overclocking: No
Core architecture: normal   A core: 0x
B core: 0x   Turbo (28 Cores): 2.70 GHz

Internal Graphics

The manufacturer has equipped CPU with a built-in graphics card being an additional advantage. Note please its manufacturing technological process and clock frequency.

GPU (Turbo): No turbo   Max. Memory: --

RAM and PCIe

A CPU is a device using mostly all capacity of the system for increasing speed and efficiency to operate. So, the more modern a memory standard and the bigger its maximum supported storage are, the better it is.

Memory type: DDR4-2933   Memory channels: 6
ECC: Yes   PCIe version: 3.0
PCIe lanes: 48  


Find out if processor supports the AES-NI extension developed by Intel Company which is used for boosting apps.

AES-NI: Yes  

Thermal Management

A standard power supply may be quite enough for low-performing and old processors, yet modern chips may need a strong cooling system and powerful power supply. To define it, pay attention please to the TDP figure and maximum temperature in operating mode.

Tjunction max.: --   TDP up: --
TDP down: --   TDP (PL1): 205 W
TDP (PL2): --
