Intel Starts Production of 10nm Xeon Scalable Processors

Intel highlighted the company's focus on execution of core products and showcased the company's broader portfolio, in addition to sharing more on what's coming in the year ahead. As part of its disclosures, Intel announced the recent production of its 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (code-named "Ice Lake") with volume ramp taking place during the first quarter of 2021. Intel's 10 nm Xeon Scalable processors feature architectural and platform innovations that boost performance, security and operational efficiency within data centers.

"Today marks a significant milestone for Intel as we continue to accelerate the delivery of our 10 nm products and maintain an intense focus on delivering a predictable cadence of leadership products for our customers," said Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Platforms Group at Intel. "Our 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable platform represents a strategic part of our data center strategy and one that we've created alongside some of our biggest customers to enable the data center of tomorrow."
The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors help deliver the computing power customers need to thrive in this new, complex world thanks to significant increases in core count, performance, integrated artificial intelligence (AI) and security.

The latest Intel Xeon Scalable processors will enable cloud, enterprise and networking customers to deploy innovative systems and services, such as next-generation cloud services, that strengthen data privacy, AI video analytics, and microservices at the edge. The new Intel Xeon Scalable processors will be formally announced in the coming months.

These are not Q1 products, you'll have to wait a few more months. In the meantime, go AMD.

"The new Intel Xeon Scalable processors will be formally announced in the coming months." A product announcement when you don't have the product details to announce.

Sorry, but the last Intel chipset/mobo I purchased was the last I will ever purchase. Intel screwed us royally with endless chipset and socket upgrades in past years, and as a professional scientist, moving to an AMD platform is not a small move. Even after multiple "forced" upgrades at the hands of Intel I am still currently stuck on a limited-core platform. Since I once again need to purchase a new mobo to keep up with computing needs, the money will be going to Intel's competitor. It seems AMD are less focused on extracting money from us, and more focused on consumer needs.

If you need to ask that question, then you're probably not an Intel scalable Xeon customer, and you probably haven't ordered those Ice lake-SP CPUs in the first place.

Exactly .. I just checked ARK and was like "WTF where's the specs?"

The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processor was Cooper Lake.

These statements from Intel are incredibly confusing. Do they not know what generation they are launching or are they still talking up Cooper Lake? I am not sure which would be more tragic.

Well, if the past showed us anything, we now know that we will be waiting at least anutha year or so for consumer-level 10nm chips from big blue....

Meanwhile, practically everyone else who is anyone in the tech world is steadily moving forward with 7/5/4/3nm products...soooo sad :(

Where is tech characteristics of Intel ice lake series?
- Based on the Sunny Cove microarchitecture
- ~18% IPC gains (over Skylake-SP)
- More cache
- More energy efficient AVX2/AVX-512, yielding significant performance gains
- PCIe 4.0
TumbleGeorge
Number of cores,
Up to 38 cores (unconfirmed).
TumbleGeorge
frequencies,
Don't know, sorry.
TumbleGeorge
cache sizes,
L1D: 32kB
L1I: 48kB (up from 32 kB)
L2: 1.25 MB (up from 1 MB)
L3: 1.5 MB (up 1.375 MB)
uOP: 2.25k (up from 1.5k)
(L1 has also increased bandwidth)
TumbleGeorge
max size and frequency of supported RAM,
8-channel 3200 MHz DDR4 (compared to 6-channel 2933 MHz on Cascade Lake-SP)
TumbleGeorge
list of all supported instructions?
Just look at icelake-server here.
