Intel launched a brand new batch of third-generation Xeon server processors right this moment. Considerably, these are Ice Lake processors—which means Intel’s 10 nm course of, not the more and more outdated 14 nm course of that almost all of Intel’s lineup has been caught on for a few years now.
In the present day’s choice features a staggering 36 separate SKUs, starting from 8-core Xeon Silver 4309Y all the way in which as much as 40-core Xeon Platinum 8380.
Gen-on-gen efficiency enchancment
There isn’t any query that right this moment’s Ice Lake Xeons are a big, badly wanted enchancment to Intel’s server lineup. Equally to Intel’s Ice Lake pocket book elements, clock speeds are down from the older 14 nm elements—however IPC is up greater than sufficient to compensate, and in contrast to the Ice Lake pocket book elements, these Xeons usually boast extra cores than the final generations do, somewhat than fewer.
