Monster: Intel's next flagship processor may include 32 processing cores

Generation E- The new chip developer could offer a huge jump in the number of processing cores available to the server world

While in the home market we are holding our fingers to the transformation of Owners of four, six and eight cores to the new basic standard of the market - it seems that the power-intensive processor world for servers may take an even bigger step forward, as early as the coming year.

Chinese site Has put forward a pre-engineered version of the model chip for the future Skylake-EP family , Which will be part of the Purley platform - the Xeon E5-2699 v5, which includes a huge number of 32 physical processing cores and 64 virtual processing cores (thanks to HyperThreading), for a new resident that is named LGA3647 and stands as the largest it's always been like this.

China is not wasting time - and they are already offering to buy a product that is supposed to be officially released in a few months

This new and monstrous model should only officially launch sometime next year, but when it does - it will be a leap of 10 physical processing cores and 20 logical processing cores compared to today's leading E5 model, the E5-2699 v4. Even the CPU The formidable and advanced E7 in the company's current arsenal includes "only" 24 physical processing cores, and pales in comparison to this new generation on the way.

By all accounts, the jump in the number of processing cores is not Intel's direct initiative - but a way to ensure continued competitiveness in the face of , Which is also preparing a processor for the world of servers that will include 32 processing cores Physical and 64 logical cores (with SMT technology) to be launched somewhere next year, under its new Naples platform.

It should be noted that today it can be accommodated up to four processors E5 dedicated motherboards, and assuming this capability is also maintained in the new generation - no less than 128 will be able to create such advanced physical processing units per unit in standard 1U dimensions

God- E5-2699 v5 will offer a thermal shell of between 135 watts and 165 watts, with the proposed engineering model providing a basic operating frequency of 2.1GHz (probably alongside a turbo frequency of several hundred megawatts, similar to current parallel models) and a required price tag for a translated 3,850 dollars - although the official recommended model price, when launched, is likely to be even higher, moving somewhere between 4,000 and 5,000 dollars per unit.

All this data may sound strange and strange to the average home consumer, but in the end there is an important technological advance that will probably affect all chipmakers' products later - who knows, maybe in two years we will be able to see Extreme Home Processors with 14 or 16 Processing cores? We'll see.

  1. The jump in the number of cores is quite likely considering the number that was on the Grantley and Grantley Refresh platforms, where there were 18 and 24 respectively.

    However, I always wonder who the idiot who buys Engineering Samples is. This is not the final version of the processor that goes through several iterations before it goes on the market. In any case, there is nothing to do with it right now as it does not have a board with a suitable bracket.

    1. The "idiot" is basically any server company that wants to launch a system with the processor as soon as it is officially launched. Most often Intel also gives the motherboard design and thermal solution. It seems to me in this case that they got the processor in the most unfit way.

    3. How do you think the launch day already has matching tablets and memories? Someone has to produce them doesn't it? To produce, you need some examples to make sure it works properly and to do tests. They usually buy them but sometimes Intel distributes them out of mutual interest.

    4. Of course, you said yourself. Intel is partnering with manufacturers and OEMs to provide them with examples to help them get the right hardware and software on the day of launch. Intel's processor was already distributed (and probably leaked), so she wondered - who would buy it?

  2. Basic 2.1GHz Basic Home Frequency (Servers)
    Not worth much.
    How to edit a video?
    How many 4 or 8 memory channels?

    Intel has not been bringing a new generation and significant changes for years
    Last year's 10% without processor language development,
    Spends wanting to buy.

  3. too little. Too late.
    We have been with the same size of server performance for years and just a company that exploits its monopoly in the market.
    Every minor improvement generation of 5-10% is a joke.
    Let's hope AMD with the ZEN will finally compete and we'll see the market move back to innovation.
    Yes, 32 cores are great, but it's something that could have been done two years ago.
    The pace needs to move forward so even home processors will finally have 32 cores
