As Intel’s Xeon Scalable ‘Ice Lake-SP’ processors are getting nearer to formal launch, extra details about their specs seems to have leaked. This time round, well-known leaker @momomo_us revealed an inventory of Ice Lake-SP CPUs with basic specs together with their costs in Southern Europe.
Because it seems, one among Intel’s companions from Portugal or Spain has both began to take orders on Intel’s upcoming Third-Era Xeon Scalable processors codenamed Ice Lake-SP, or simply included them in its worth listing.
For the reason that CPUs haven’t been introduced by Intel, it’s unattainable to confirm accuracy of their specs, however a minimum of their mannequin numbers in addition to basic specs corroborate with these revealed by Hewlett Packard Enterprise a few weeks in the past.
The leaked listing of Intel’s Ice Lake-SP processors for servers consists of 18 Xeon Platinum and Xeon Gold processors with 16, 18, 28, 32, 36, 38 or 40 cores. As reported, the Xeon Platinum 8380 will characteristic 40 cores clocked at 2.30 GHz and can, be geared up with 60 MB of LLC (1.5 MB per core). The mannequin 8380 will probably be amongst Intel’s highest-performing chips for datacenters and will probably be priced accordingly: chip is projected to price €8,411 ($9,875) with out VAT (21%).
In the meantime there may also be quite a few Xeon Platinum fashions with 38 and 36 cores that may sit beneath the upper finish mannequin, however will function at larger clocks and can price considerably lower than the 40-core SKU.
Usually, Intel’s households of server CPUs are a lot broader, so count on the Ice Lake-SP lineup to include extra merchandise aimed toward machines that want lower than 28 cores per socket or assist extra reminiscence per socket.
