Intel Ice Lake-SP and Cooper Lake-SP Details Leaked

Brainbox, a Korean media outlet, has gathered information on Intel's newest Ice Lake and Cooper Lake server processors from a presentation ASUS held for its server lineup. With Cooper Lake-SP paving the way for the first server CPU model to be released on the new "Whitley" platform, it is supposed to launch in Q2 of 2020. Cooper Lake-SP comes with TDP of 300 W and will be available with configurations of up to 48 cores, but there also should be a 56 core model like the Xeon Platinum 9282, that has a TDP of 400 W. Cooper Lake-SP supports up to 64 PCIe 3.0 lanes, 8 channel memory (16 DIMMs in total) that goes up to 3200 MHz and four Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) links.

Ice Lake-SP, built on the new 10 nm+ manufacturing process, is coming in soon after Cooper Lake-SP release, with a launch window in Q3 of 2020. That is just few months apart from previous CPU launch, so it will be a bit hard to integrate the launches of two rather distinct products. As far as the specifications of Ice Lake-SP goes, it will have up to 38 core for the top end model, within 270 W TDP. It supports 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes with three UPI links. There is also 8 channel memory support, however this time there is an option to use 2nd generation Optane DC Persistent Memory. Both CPU uArches will run on the new LGA 4189 on the P+ socket.

I saw PCI-E Gen 4 in the slide. :)

legend says it will only be available in the server market for intel.

I don't wanna be "that guy", but unless some IPC miracle happens, im not sure how these will stack against the valiant Zen3-based EPYC CPUs. The amount of compute power AMD is able to cram even today at the Zen2 gen is immense.

Yeaaaaaah Zen2 was designed expecting to compete against icelake....

Commenting on the yields of Cooper Lake, when in reality you should be about ICL-SP.

These are not monolithic. Two 28-core XCC cores on one package.
38-core Ice Lake Xeon is much more interesting, I have to wonder how many dies at which core counts that one uses.

Sure, I have astigmatism, would that work for you?

First of all, Cascade Lake supports up to 2933 MHz ram. I already can smell BS in this slide.

I am happy to see that we are now incorporating new technology and standards in to our next gen machines but from a gaming perspective only, we are not even fully utilizing PCIe 3.0/3.1. I welcome PCIe 4.0 but I would also like to see advancements it the utilization of the newer standard besides add on cards for storage devices

Keep in mind that the slide is from Asus, not Intel, so mistakes are possible.

Usually the bus comes first and then whatever interfaces with the bus...
Give it some time, they'll arrive at some point next year.

that makes a slight difference, mistakes will happen.

There's nothing like 4-600W consumption.

Dead before conceived. And imagine the glue it'd take for the sad ice lake one lol.

Except for the core count and TDP, I believe most other details are already confirmed by Intel, so I don't think this one is far from the truth, even if it was made up to make another news cycle.

I guess it doesn't come with a cascade does it?

I think you'll need an entire mountain from the Cascades instead of just a cooler.

Someone call Greta and tell her Intel is responsible for global warming.

What glue? Isn't that one monolithic?

Only if they plan on producing 2 per wafer.

10nm is supposed to get to "real" levels of yields next year according to leaks. Intel will have to prove it first for anyone to believe it by now, of course.
