Leak: Intel’s Ice Lake-SP processors supports up to 40 cores
This week AMD has launched the third-generation EPYC server processors. These processors are based on the 7-nanometer node ZEN 3 architecture and support up to 64 cores and 128 threads.
Now Intel will also launch a new server processor as a response to AMD’s new product. Intel will upgrade the processor for the server to the 10nm node.
These processors belong to the Lake-SP series and have significantly improved performance compared to previous generation products. Intel’s new CEO Pat Gelsinger will participate in the conference.
Intel has scheduled a press conference on March 23. The focus of this press conference is the Lake-SP series of Intel server processors.
Pat Gelsinger will give a speech on Intel’s business, technology, and innovation. The whole speech will be made public in the form of a webcast, and all users can watch the live broadcast.
The theme of this conference is that technology leads the future. As Intel’s veteran, Pat Gelsinger is very confident to revive Intel and regain investor confidence.
Pat Gelsinger emphasized that Intel must maintain a leading position in technology, so Intel will inevitably announce an exciting new product portfolio at this press conference.
Although the press conference has not yet been held, the information on the new products Intel will launch has been leaked ahead of time. The focus of this press conference is the Ice Lake-SP series processors.
These processors are based on the highest version of the 10-nanometer node that supports 40 cores and 80 threads, which is a sharp increase in performance compared to previous versions of Intel server processors.
Of course, as a server processor, there are natural upgrades in terms of frequency, cache, and core architecture, but compared with AMD EPYC processors, follow-up evaluation is still needed.
At present, Intel still occupies a dominant position in the server processor market, so it is still quite difficult for AMD to steal the market from Intel as a whole.
