Intel Announces New Xeon W-3300 Processors

Intel today launched its newest generation Intel Xeon W-3300 processors, available today from its system integrator partners. Built for advanced workstation professionals, Intel Xeon W-3300 processors offer uncompromised performance, expanded platform capabilities, and enterprise-grade security and reliability in a single-socket solution.

Intel Xeon W-3300 processors are intelligently engineered to push the boundaries of performance, with a new processor core architecture that transforms for what expert workstation users can accomplish on a workstation.

The Intel Xeon W-3300 processors are designed for next-gen professional applications with heavily threaded, input/output-intensive workloads. Use cases stretch across artificial intelligence (AI), architecture, engineering, construction (AEC), and media and entertainment (M&E). With a new processor core architecture to transform efficiency and advanced technologies to support data integrity, Intel Xeon W-3300 processors are equipped to deliver uncompromising workstation performance.
Five new processors (W-3375, W-3365, W-3345, W-3335 and W-3323) deliver outstanding performance with expanded platform capabilities in a single-socket solution. They include up to 38 cores and 76 threads with Intel Hyper-Threading Technology, frequencies up to 4.0 GHz, 64 processor PCIe* Gen 4.0 lanes and up to 4 TB of DDR4-3200 error-correcting code (ECC) memory support.

Intel Xeon W-3300 processors feature a new processor core architecture representing a new era in performance and efficiency, and as compared to the previous generation deliver:
  • Up to 2.5 times maximum memory capacity support and up to 31% memory bandwidth increase.
  • Up to 45% faster multi-threaded performance in Cinema 4D workloads.
  • Up to 26% faster on preview rendering workloads in AutoDesk Maya.
  • Up to 20% faster editing and encoding performance in Adobe Premiere Pro workloads.
  • Up to 27% faster on final 3D rendering workloads in AutoDesk Maya.
Other featured technologies include:
  • Up to 4.0 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost 2.0.
  • Intel Deep Learning Boost to power machine learning inferencing workloads.
  • Up to 4 TB DDR4-3200 8-channel memory support.
  • Intel AVX-512 instruction support.
  • Error-correcting code (ECC) memory support.
  • Built-in reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) technologies.
  • Intel Optane SSD P5800X support.

this is probably entirely me....but I feel that Intel should go for a new name replacing Xeon, it just sounds old and dated to me with everything that has happened

38 cores? Isn't that a weird number of total cores? It's usually 4-8-16-32 and 64.

It’s actually more, if I recall correctly, but some of the cores are disabled for yield purposes.

Gruffalo.SoldierThese using a new socket too?
Yes, each new Intel server platform is a new socket.
Ice Lake SP has been known to use LGA4189 for years.

Weird how?
That's only your misconception, core count or other discrete elements in computers doesn't all have to be a power of 2.
The actual core count for the XCC die is 40.

Nothing new here. For example, Skylake-X (and the later 14nm++++++++++++ LGA2066 ones) has 6/8/10/12/14/16/18-core SKUs.

It's not weird given that these days they can disable any number of cores. But 40 core max that is the limit of their scaling. It doesn't matter anyways though as the 38 core still falls behind the alternatives 32 cores. There's a reason they don't want to be matched up core for core regardless.

Ya those numbers dont look great for intel... spend more to get less isn't a great marketing campaign.

Promoting wifi for a server/workstation chip is fun.

I disagree. The "Xeon" nomenclature is just fine.

yeah. it's a well established brand name and easy for people to reference "ah. xeon. server." - so why change it :)

Its funny how Intel has to explicitily mention ECC memory support while TR Pro supports RDIMMs.

Well, I explained, I mean do you feel its ok to have the name Pentium still lingering? because I dont.
Xeon has been nothing but embarrasing for the last years, to make a new splash and show the world that they can deliver I would think a new name is in order, like AMD did with Epyc, they could have still called it Opteron but did not.

Eh, I agree with the others. The Xeon name is fine.

No, what's embarrassing is how wrong your comment is.

Hi,
AMD is handing Intel/ Xeon's their ass last I've seen.

In core count, yes AMD has overtaken Intel. In IPC, no. Intel is still competitive. And the benchmarks bare that out.
