Leaked images of a purported Intel Granite Rapids Xeon 9000 CPU socket have been put under close scrutiny. It is estimated that the socket is a massive 1.7X larger than the current gen Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon 8000 CPU socket, but this is understandable given that the new socket has 61% more pins. Next gen... Read more...
HPC and hyperscale guys are excited for Intel's Xeon Max processors with onboard HBM, but Sapphire Rapids comprises an entire line of processors spanning the whole range of Xeons. One of those chips has just shown up in the Geekbench database, spotted by the watchful eye of the Benchleaks bot. The processor in... Read more...
In our latest episode of 2.5 Geeks, we cover Intel and AMD's beefiest, baddest processors that were announced this month for desktop PCs and the data center, including Sapphire Rapids, AMD EYPC Genoa, and the Core i9-13900KS. We also discuss the best we saw at CES 2023... Show Notes: 00:00 Countdown Begins 05:00... Read more...
Intel 4th Generation Xeon Processors (Sapphire Rapids) Intel’s tiled chiplet approach with specialized accelerators could open the door for some truly custom server recipes for individual customer demands.   Accelerated workloads can fly DDR5, PCIe Gen 5, and CXL 1.1 Support SKU models to suit wide a...

Hot on the heels of Intel formally unveiling its 4th Gen Xeon Scalable processors (otherwise known as Sapphire Rapids), SK hynix is pounding its chest over having obtained the industry's first validation for '1anm' DDR5 DRAM on Intel's latest server platform. From SK hynix's vantage point, this is a "monumental"... Read more...
Intel is launching its 4th Gen Xeon Scalable Processors (codename Sapphire Rapids) today, along with the Xeon CPU Max Series (codename Sapphire Rapids HBM) for datacenter customers. The company has been slowly disclosing information since its Innovation 2022 event, but now the veil is lifted on the entire 4th Gen Xeon... Read more...
Intel's Raptor Lake on the desktop is a great success, but what's next for the boys in blue? According to the latest leaks, it looks like a Raptor Lake refresh is in the cards for mid-2023. That's just one part of a pretty significant bundle of data from regular leakster HXL (@9550pro on Twitter) that also includes... Read more...
For quite some time now—since the mid-1990s or thereabouts—there's been a significant split in the PC market between standard consumer desktops and workstation systems, also known as "high-end desktop" (HEDT) systems. HEDT machines, generally speaking, usually offer more high bandwidth connectivity, more cores, and... Read more...
Lately, Intel faces stiff competition in what have traditionally been its strongest markets: data center and the enterprise. NVIDIA muscled in on Intel's territory a long time ago with its powerful GPU compute accelerators, but now the green team is pushing its own CPUs along with its GPUs. On the other side, it has...

Intel's upcoming Sapphire Rapids 4th Gen Xeon server CPUs, expected to compete with AMD's upcoming Epyc Zen 4 processors, are not even released yet. However, the company is already looking further ahead with Granite Rapids, Intel's 6th Gen Xeon platform, which is likely in the pipeline for 2023 or 2024. At the... Read more...
It wasn't all that long ago that we had our first experience with Intel's 4th-generation Scalable Xeons, code-named Sapphire Rapids, and checked out some live benchmarks. In the demonstration, Intel put its pre-release silicon up against the current best from AMD, a server with a pair of Milan-based EPYC 7763 64-core... Read more...
This afternoon at Intel Innovation 2022 in San Jose, Intel offered a sneak peek of the capabilities of the on-board accelerators of its forthcoming 4th Generation Xeon Processor family, known as Sapphire Rapids. In fact, we were treated to a hands-on “Intel 4th Gen Xeon Accelerator Experience” today, to watch Sapphire... Read more...
When we start talking about processor performance, it's important to understand that various applications have a variety of needs. It goes beyond simple "latency vs. throughput" considerations. There are many factors that go into actually executing a program that all have an effect on how it performs. While we tend... Read more...
There's a diverse cast of characters in the hardware enthusiast community, but among leakers, a few names seem to come up time and again. Some of those names are especially memorable, perhaps none moreso than "Enthusiastic Citizens Stroke Monster." A Chinese leaker who frequently posts details of upcoming hardware on... Read more...
Do you know about Sapphire Rapids? If you're someone who fiddles about with servers for their day job, you almost assuredly are waiting with bated breath for Intel's upcoming high-end processors. However, if you're Joe Gamer, or an overclocking enthusiast, you may not be as informed about the forthcoming datacenter... Read more...
The talk of the day might be centered on Alder Lake, but Intel made another notable announcement today, regarding the performance potential of Argonne National Laboratory's Aurora supercomputer. We already knew that Intel's next-gen Xe-HPC GPU codenamed Ponte Vecchio would help power Aurora, but revealed today, Ponte... Read more...
When Intel brought back its former CTO Pat Gelsinger to helm the ship, the company knew it was bringing aboard a supremely confident and capable leader—Gelsinger's resume is nothing short of impressive. Since replacing Bob Swan in the role as CEO, Gelsinger has said all the right things, and put into motion an... Read more...

This year... Read more...
The next generation of Intel's Xeon Scalable processors codenamed Sapphire Rapids will feature high bandwidth memory (HBM), the company confirmed at the 2021 International Supercomputing Conference (ISC). This is intended to provide "a dramatic boost in memory bandwidth," as well as offer a "significant" jump in high... Read more...
Intel talked a little bit about Sapphire Rapids, its next generation Xeon Scalable processor lineup, during its Architecture Day 2020 event last August. While it has always been assumed Sapphire Rapids will leverage Intel's upcoming Golden Cove architecture, just like Alder Lake, this has never been officially... Read more...
Past leaks have suggested that Intel's upcoming 4th Gen Xeon Scalable server processors codenamed Sapphire Rapids will flex up to 56 cores and 112 threads of big iron, but maybe an even bigger flex is in store. A user who got their hands on a supposed Sapphire Rapids engineering sample did onlookers a solid by peeling... Read more...
Earlier this week, Intel formally introduced the world to its 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processors, its first server chips built on a 10-nanometer manufacturing process. Otherwise known as Ice Lake-SP, these are being offered in up to 40-core/80-thread configurations, up from 28-core/56-thread configs with its 2nd gen... Read more...
