Intel today announced its future Intel Xeon Scalable processor family (codename Cooper Lake) will offer customers up to 56 processor cores per socket and built-in AI training acceleration in a standard, socketed CPU as part of its mainline Intel Xeon Scalable platforms, with availability in the first half of 2020. The breakthrough platform performance delivered within the high-core-count Cooper Lake processors will leverage the capabilities built into the Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 series, which today is gaining momentum among the world's most demanding HPC customers, including HLRN, Advania, 4Paradigm, and others.

"The Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 series that we introduced as part of our 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor family generated a lot of excitement among our customers who are deploying the technology to run their high-performance computing (HPC), advanced analytics, artificial intelligence and high-density infrastructure. Extended 56-core processor offerings into our mainline Intel Xeon Scalable platforms enables us to serve a much broader range of customers who hunger for more processor performance and memory bandwidth."
-Lisa Spelman, vice president and general manager of Data Center Marketing, Intel Corporation


The future Intel Xeon Scalable processors (codename Cooper Lake) will deliver twice the processor core count (up to 56 cores), higher memory bandwidth, and higher AI inference and training performance compared to the standard Intel Xeon Platinum 8200 processor. The future 56-core Cooper Lake processor is expected to deliver a lower power envelope than the current Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors. Cooper Lake will be the first x86 processor to deliver built-in high-performance AI training acceleration capabilities through new bfloat16 support added to Intel Deep Learning Boost (Intel DL Boost ). Cooper Lake will have platform compatibility with the upcoming 10nm Ice Lake processor.

For more than 20 years, Intel Xeon processors have delivered the platform and performance leadership that gives data center and enterprise customers the flexibility to pick the right solution for their computing needs. Next-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors (Cooper Lake) build off Intel's uninterrupted server processor track record by delivering leadership performance for customers' real-world workloads and business application needs.

Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors are available for purchase today as part of a pre-configured systems from select OEMs, including Atos, HPE, Lenovo, Penguin Computing, Megware and authorized Intel resellers. Learn more information about the Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors.

Go actually talk to the vendors... they say no one wants these... due to the 400w tdp.

There are going to be no mainstream servers with these, just a handful of HPC only boxes that will have to be watercooled...
Penguin computing doesn't even list these (one of the hpc vendors in the list) Cray said they were going to make a box but have not shown it yet, that is why HPE is in the list, they recently acquired Cray, but there will be no HPE Proliants with them in them, only select Apollo servers for Megascale customers for Supercomputers.

This is Damage control before Epyc launch.

tl;dr
Assuming the leak is correct, it does in some tests. Dual socket setup being 2x28 cores vs 64.
Are we really surprised that a single socket 64 core chip beat a dual socket 28 core system in some tests? Also there were tests where a single 28 core chip beat dual socket 64 core chips. So, don't be offended if I wait for reviews by reliable parties (Anandtech, etc) versus anonymous "leaked" benches. And I'm willing to bet that both chips trade benches when that happens.

Give it a day. Intel is in damage control for Rome's imminent launch.

The thing is, Intel did that already in April with the Xeon 9200 series launch. One of the links in your post says (and given the early 2020 ETA it is likely) this current announcement is Cooper Lake. Whether Intel can improve considerably on Cascade Lake-AP when it comes to power consumption, we will have to wait and see. New platform and 8-channel memory should be the main improvement there.

On the other side of the fence, Rome is kind of out there (in supercomputers for practically a year) but still not officially released.

Intel is trying to convince it's customers that huge powerful chips are just around the corner, so they don't go with AMD.
As for those CPUs, probably the AI part could be interenting and something where Intel could differenciate itself from AMD. As for the cores, at 14nm,.... well, HUGE PSU...

This is damage control for imminent public release, STH, anand reviews incoming.
This is about cooperlake because the industry Balked at the paper launch of 9200 bga chips, these are socketed...and "less power" but not 10nm, but will be upgradeable to 10nm icelake.... in a few years.
This is very much a please don't buy epyc, we promise we are not done competing, and I am certain they are not done, but they are certainly in one of the worst positions they have ever been in on the server market.

What they do have is a clock speed advantage because of 14nm, so they will retain competitiveness in certain workloads, however they cannot flex that too strongly or they will have performance degradations with icelake 10nm. as we have seen their 10nm+ having 600-1000mhz clock reductions on the icelake laptop chips erasing the 18% ipc gains.

On tests where memory bandwidth matters, yes I am impressed, it means a dual socket 120 core would wipe the floor with the other brand and do it for less money, with lower TDP. All things that matter to the end user, and the person who has to pay for the server. It shows AMD has done hard work to increase the mask the cache gives them over latency and points us towards a CPU that will have great performance in the long run, not a short life before being replaced with a new and more expensive setup.

I don't think anyone can deny that AMD has made huge progress with their recent designs. I guess my biggest point of contention is the notion that Intel is doomed. There is no doubt their backs are up against a corner, but they have been there before and we all know what the result was. I personally am pulling for both companies (Nvidia too), because customers win when there is strong competition.

No,
We are surprised a $7800 chip beating 2x $10000 chip
And a 225W chip beating 2x 205W chip.
Agreed that is impressive. Just want to point out that the price isn't really that big of deal when you compare it to total cost of ownership. Things like RAM, Software and Service dwarf the cost of the CPUs.

Oh, you are right. Epyc Rome should be released tomorrow. Kind of forgot about that with the constant rumored release dates over this year :)
