Intel has unveiled its brand-new Xeon CPU roadmap which reveals three product families as a part of the Birch Stream platform.
We have already detailed Intel's next-gen P-Core Xeon family codenamed Granite Rapids and E-Core Xeon family codenamed Sierra Forest and the follow on to that known as Clearwater Forest. Today, Intel is publicly announcing that all three product families will be compatible with its new Birch Stream platform which will come in LGA 4710 and LGA 7529 flavors.
Today, Intel is confirming a few new details such as the fact that its 5th Gen Xeon family known as Emerald Rapids will be launching on 14th December and will be compatible with the existing Eagle Stream platform while offering a modest increase in core count while significantly boosting cache counts.
Intel announced AI performance updates and industry momentum for its data center and artificial intelligence product portfolio, including Gaudi2 and 3; 4th Gen Xeon; 5th Gen Intel Xeon; and future-generation Xeon processors code-named Sierra Forest and Granite Rapids. The details:
Further expanding upon its E-Core family, Intel announced that the 144-Core Sierra Forest chip we saw earlier was just a glimpse of what's to come as that utilized a single chiplet. The company also has a dual-chiplet SKU which offers 144 cores on each die for a total of 288 cores and 288 threads.
This is a record-breaking core count for an Intel chip and is likely to be very competitive against the AMD cloud offerings such as Bergamo with 128 cores, 256 threads, and its successors.Read more on wccftech.com
