Intel is launching its first server products built using its advanced 10nm manufacturing process today: the 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable family of processors. 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processors are based on the Ice Lake-SP microarchitecture, which incorporates a number of new features and enhancements. For example, core counts have been significantly increased; Intel 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors feature up to 40 cores per processor versus 28 cores with 2nd gen offerings. The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor platform also supports up to 8 channels of DDR4-3200 memory, up to 6 terabytes of total system memory, and up to 64 lanes of PCIe Gen4 connectivity per socket, for more bandwidth, higher...

Intel has a couple of notable events coming up. The first is a webcast scheduled for tomorrow (March 23), in which Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger will discuss a "new era of innovation and technology leadership." Then in a couple weeks from now, Intel is planning to formally introduce its latest 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors based on Ice Lake-SP. Intel's Xeon launch event, titled "How Wonderful Gets Done 2021," is scheduled for April 6 at 8:00 am Pacific (11:00 am Eastern). Intel's Navin Shenoy, executive vice president in the Data Platforms Group, and Lisa Spelman, corporate vice president in the Xeon and Memory Group, will both be on hand to discuss the new processor launches. Gelsinger and... Read more...
The server wars are heating up, with both AMD and Intel prepping new weaponry for the lucrative battlefield. According to Intel, its 3rd Gen Xeon "Ice Lake-SP" Xeon Platinum processors bring the boom and include "revolutionary new technologies." While we wait for a proper launch, two upcoming Ice Lake-SP chips have poked their heads into a benchmark database. The two listings appear over at SiSoftware's SANDRA database, one of which contains some bench results for a pair of Xeon Platinum 8352Y server processors, and the other for a single Xeon Platinum 8352S processor. In terms of each one's specifications, they are pretty much identical, except the Y variant supports dual-socket configs and... Read more...
It has been interesting to see AMD and duke it out on the home desktop, the former with its latest generation Zen 3 architecture and the latter with Comet Lake (soon to be Rocket Lake). But that is not the only place these two chip giants tussle. The server space is an important battleground, and both are set to load up new artillery, models and specs of which have seemingly leaked out. Leaked information on upcoming server CPUs has been an ongoing thing, actually, some of which we have covered. Back in December, for example, a pair of next-gen EPYC 7003 series CPUs with 64-cores and 128-threads ripped through Cinebench 23, scoring an insane 87,878 in the multi-core test and 1,215 in the single-core...

We’ve known that Ice Lake-SP processors would be on the way from Intel for quite some time, and we’re now getting a glimpse at some high-end SKUs that will be coming to the Xeon product family. Intel has been stuck on the 14nm process node for its mainstream and enterprise-class processors for much longer than originally anticipated, but Ice Lake-SP is the company’s first foray into 10nm for Xeons. Luckily, some leaked benchmarks have made their way to the Geekbench database that gives us an early look at what to expect when these chips land later this year (hopefully). Kicking things off with Geekbench, a dual-socket system was benchmarked with two 28-core Ice... Read more...
As far as we know, Intel is still planning to launch 10th generation 10-nanometer Ice Lake-SP Xeon processors for the server market this year, and perhaps even sometime this month, if it sticks with a previously rumored 1H20 time frame. Ahead of the launch, we have another set of Ice Lake-SP leaks to digest. This latest round of leaks focuses on an Ice Lake-SP model with 24 cores and 48 threads. As we have written about before, Ice Lake-SP is rumored to ship with up to 38 cores and 72 threads (per socket), with support for 64 PCI Express 4.0 lanes. 8-channel DDR4-3200 memory (16 DIMMs per socket), and Intel's second generation Optane DC Persistent memory. These upcoming chips will be part of... Read more...
