Intel's Core X series used to be synonymous with fever, but with the emergence of AMD Ryron thread ripper, the Core X series was directly hit without a trace, causing AMD to give up the desktop fever market directly, only for the workstation.
With the upcoming release of the fourth generation of the extensible Xeon codenamed Sapphire Rapids, Intel is finally returning to the realm of fever, but again only for workstations. It's not even called the Core X series anymore, but the Xeon W9/W7/W5 series.
According to the latest aeration,The new Xeon W series will be announced in Week 7, 2023, between February 13 and 17, and will not be available until April.
There is no further information on the specific specifications, but the previous exposure has been very detailed:
Xeon W9 series two, among whichFlagship Xeon W9-3495X 56 core 112 threads, cache 105MB, base frequency 1.9GHz, thermal design power 350W, the other Xeon W9-3475X 36 core.
Xeon W7 series three models, respectively 28/24/20 core. Xeon W5 series four models, respectively 16/12 core, thermal design power consumption of the lowest 220W.
Yes, they're all pure large nuclei, no small nuclei.
However, a thread ripper for the AMD Zen4 architecture is also in the works, boosted to a maximum of 96 cores and with a superlarge cache of 480MB.
