It has been a little bit since Intel launched a new high-end desktop (HEDT) lineup, the last one being Cascade Lake-X, which debuted in late 2019. Now with Alder Lake set to arrive in the coming weeks, could another round of Core-X processors be on the horizon? If the latest leak is true, the answer is yes, though still a little ways in the distance. Rumor has it that, despite previous leaks to the contrary, there will not be an X699 chipset. Instead, Intel will launch its Sapphire Rapids-X processors on an upcoming W790 platform, which will serve as the successor to X299, according to a leaker on Chiphell. If their information is accurate, Core-X chips based on Sapphire Rapids will manifest... Read more...
Back at Intel's Architecture Day 2020 event, the chip maker divulged certain details about its 10-nanometer SuperFin technology, and talked a little about its next-generation Xeon Scalable processors, codenamed Sapphire Rapids. It seems Intel is on track to Sapphire Rapids later this year, as evidenced by photos of what are purportedly actual engineering samples. Sapphire Rapids is based on Intel's enhanced SuperFin technology, which presumably offers better performance and power characteristics compared to the current generation Xeon Scalable lineup. Intel's upcoming 4th Gen Xeon chips will also bring new technologies into the fold, including DDR5 and PCI Express 5.0 support, Compute Express... Read more...
