Previously, some netizens found traces of a new Sapphire Rapids processor model number W9-3495, which is equipped with 56 cores and 112 threads, and confirmed that AVX-512 and AMX instructions are enabled. With the exposure of the Xeon processor and Fishhawk Falls platform used in the new generation of workstations, more details gradually surfaced.
According to VideoCardz, the Xeon processors used in the new generation of workstations will also cover the original HEDT platform to a certain extent, replacing the previous Cascade Lake-X position. The Sapphire Rapids workstation processor uses the Golden Cove architecture core and is manufactured using the Intel 7 (10nm Enhanced SuperFin) process. Only equipped with large cores, it will be divided into three series, W9 (300W to 350W), W7 (270W to 300W), and W5 (220W to 270W), among which the frequency is up to 3.2 GHz, and most of the others run at 2.x GHz frequency.
