When Pat Gelsinger stepped into the role of CEO of Intel, replacing Bob Swan at the helm, he outlined a plan to restore Intel's leadership in its fab process technologies. He also made clear that Intel would tap third-party foundries, where it makes sense to do that, and it appears as though Intel will be a major... Read more...
Apple is eager to leave Intel behind as the supplier of CPUs for its Mac lineup, but bear in mind that this transition to using Arm-based silicon based on custom home brewed designs in place of Intel's x86 CPUs is not an overnight thing—Apple last year said it would take a couple of years to complete the transition...

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...
Normally when people think of "business-class laptops" they envision moderately powerful systems that handle office productivity tasks and web browsing duties with plenty of performance to keep employees productive, but without frivolous cost-adding features. On the flip side, workstations conjure images of tremendously powerful beasts with... 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...
When we think of processors used in the enterprise market, Intel Xeon or AMD EPYC x86-64 families typically comes to mind. Intel has the lion's share of the market, with AMD steadily gaining traction ever since its Zen architecture birthed first-generation EPYC 7001 processors. However, Arm is also a player in this...

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...
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... Read more...
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... 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... 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... Read more...
Intel is not real happy with one of its former employees, Dr. Varun Gupta, who spent nearly a decade at the chip maker as its product marketing engineer before leaving in January of last year. In a recently filed lawsuit, Intel alleges Dr. Gupta stole "highly confidential, proprietary, and trade secret information"... 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... Read more...
Most people would probably agree that Intel is in need of a win in the CPU sector, now that AMD's Ryzen 5000 series is kicking tail and taking names (for those who can find one in stock, anyway). Ice Lake might provide that win, in the server space. How so? According to Intel, a 32-core Xeon processor based on Ice... Read more...
When it comes to high-speed interfaces for storage and graphics, PCIe 4.0 has been a known quantity (at least for consumers) since AMD launched its Ryzen 3000 Zen 2 platform during the summer of 2019. Intel embraced PCIe 4.0 this year with the release of Tiger Lake, although laptop manufacturers have yet to leverage... Read more...
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... Read more...
The Intel Data Center Group (DCG) unveiled a plethora of new products today targeting AI and big data analytics workloads, including 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable Processors, 200 Series Optane Persistent Memory, AI-optimized Stratix 10 NX FPGAs, and faster 3D NAND-based solid state drives. Over the last few years... 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... Read more...
So much of the attention on Intel's 2020 CPU lineup has been on the company's upcoming Comet Lake-S and Comet Lake-H desktop processors, and whatever 10-nanometer products might be in the pipeline. Lest we forget, though, Intel will be refreshing its Xeon server processors as well. As it pertains to that, some leaked... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about Intel's Comet Lake-H family of mobile processors in recent months, but only with respect to the chips aimed at the consumer market. Today, however, information is coming down the pipeline regarding Comet Lake-H mobile chis that are part of the Xeon family. In this case, reliable... Read more...
When it comes to its highly profitable Xeon Scalable server processors, Intel has been on the defensive as of late versus its chief rival AMD. While INTC has an overwhelmingly large lead in server processor market share, it also is looking to protect that lead with the release of its Cascade Lake Refresh processors... Read more...
Intel is planning to roll out new Xeon processors this year, including ones built around its 10th generation Ice Lake architecture, which is already shipping in consumer laptops. Built on a 10-nanometer manufacturing process, the Ice Lake-SP Xeon lineup will go toe-to-toe with AMD's Zen 3-based EPYC "Milan" processors... Read more...
