Starting from the end of 2021, Intel has released the 12th and 13th generation core processors one after another, getting its competitiveness back on track in the mainstream consumer market and gradually regaining its share. But Intel has been making too much noise on higher-end HEDT and workstation platforms, and products such as Cascade Lake 's Core i9-10980XE were updated at the end of 2019.
However, there may be a turnaround in the near future, with the arrival of the Sapphire Rapids series of servers, Intel also issued a personal statement.It confirms that a new generation of workstation processors based on the new architecture is coming.
Intel officials say the new generation of workstation processors is very fast, suggesting that the performance is so powerful that it even requires users to reschedule the time to pick up coffee because the work waiting time will be shorter.
It is understood that Intel's new workstation processor must be based on a derivative of the fourth-generation Xerox processor Sapphire Rapids.It should be named as the Super WMI 3400 series and the Super WMI 2400 series.
According to the exposure, the Zhiqiang Wmur3000 series is divided into three levels: W9, W7 and W5.Among them, the flagship Xeon W9-3495Xroomnbsp 56 core 112 threads, cache 105MB, reference frequency 1.9GHz, hot design power consumption 350W, the other Xeon W9-3475X is a 36 core.
The CPU architecture is the same Golden Cove performance core of 12 generations of Core, and there will be no E core, so it supports the full blood AVX512 instruction set and unlocks the frequency doubling.
The platform will be upgraded to the brand new W790Magi LGA4677 socket, which supports 8-channel DDR5 memory (16 lines) and 112 PCIe 5.0 slots. Models with X suffix will unlock frequency doubling and support manual overclocking. The WMel 2400 series with lower positioning should limit the number of cores, memory channels and PCIe channels.
After years of silence, Intel will return to the HEDT and workstation market next year, and the new Super W series will be based on Golden Cove P-Core, without E-Core, and will provide higher performance and scalability than mainstream Core platforms.
Of course, due to the repeated delays of Sapphire Rapids, whether it is based on its servers or derivatives workstations, their competitors will change from 64-core Zen 3 to 96-core Zen 4, which is still under great competitive pressure.
