Intel Xeon 4th generation processor (Sapphire Rapids)
|At the last CES 2021 exhibition, Intel confirmed the start of production of Xeon server processors of the 3rd generation (Ice Lake-SP), and they should be widely sold in the current quarter. Meanwhile, in the live photos below, a representative of the Sapphire Rapids family, which should replace Ice Lake-SP, was lit up. |
Rumors have been talking about the release of Sapphire Rapids this year, but this will not happen, since sales of Ice Lake-SP have not even started yet. Meanwhile, despite the same 10-nanometer process, Sapphire Rapids will be significantly better than Ice Lake-SP, as they will be the first Intel server CPUs with PCI Express 5.0 bus support, as well as an eight-channel DDR5 memory controller. Also, Sapphire Rapids will receive built-in HMB memory and support for the Compute Express Link 1.1 bus.
The Sapphire Rapids-SP engineering sample shown in these pictures runs at 1.3 GHz (this is normal for early samples) and is designed to fit into the new LGA4677-X connector. It's not hard to see how big the processor is.
