Intel Sapphire Rapids HEDT Processors & W790 Chipset Appear in Leaked Roadmap

We haven't seen any new prosumer HEDT processors since AMD launched their Ryzen Threadripper 3000 lineup in early 2020. Intel has had a very weak HEDT offering over the past few years with their 14 nm Cascade Lake processors and X299 chipset where the flagship Core i9-10980XE offered just 18 cores. Intel appears to be preparing to launch an updated HEDT offering in Q2 2022 with 10 nm Sapphire Rapids processors and a new W790 chipset. The new W790 chipset may launch alongside Raptor Lake which is expected to support the Z790 chipset. We still have a while until these products launch with Intel not yet having released their Alder Lake predecessors while AMD is expected to announce Threadripper 5000 in the coming months.
