Intel Xeon Processors Grace Laptops For First Time With Skylake-Based E3-1500M v5
These CPUs will be part of the Xeon E3-1500M v5 family based on Intel's recently launched 14nm Skylake architecture. They'll deliver high precision computing horsepower in notebook form factors and sport features such as error-correcting code (ECC) memory that automatically detects and repairs errors on-the-fly. While ECC memory isn't common in home desktops, it's an important feature in the type of mission critical applications that workstations are tasked with.

"And if that’s not enough, Intel will also provide certifications for applications in computer-aided design and engineering, and digital content creation. This is just scratching the surface of what to expect from the Intel Xeon Processor E3-1500M v5 Product Family for mobile workstations," Intel said. "We’re not quite ready to unveil all the details, but as you can see there is a lot for content creators, designers and engineers to get excited about."
No release date has been given, though it's a safe bet that Intel will talk more about its mobile Xeon line at IDF15 in San Francisco next week.
