Not all will receive 5 GHz: new information about Intel's mysterious kernel 28 processor

After the demonstration on stage that stunned everyone, the real technical details about the chip maker's superconductor are beginning to trickle down

One of the highlights of the Computex 2018, and perhaps of all these exhibitions in recent years, was undoubtedly the demo provided by Intel 28 CPU Cores (And 56 logical cores overall) New that does not belong to the Xeon family of the server world - on stage vividly, without any prior reporting that prepared us for it, and more with a huge 5 gigahertz per core and core In the array. Is this an illustration of the tremendous surge we expect with the move to 10 nm? the mother Find a way to bend the familiar laws of physics? The answers are slowly becoming clearer now.

Although this was not stated in the demo, it was natural to assume that the processor in question was rushed to reach the formidable frequency it was operating in - and Intel did admit it, making it clear that the system was being used. Water with a large external chiller unit for this purpose. In other words, this is not exactly an array that can be expected to operate regularly in the home environment, so it is reasonable to assume that the vast majority of consumers will have to compromise at a minimum working frequency of at least several hundred MHz.

This is how it looks on stage when announcing - when it can certainly be stated that the numbers sound "too good to be true"

Other interesting data is the discovery that the processor is not based on 10 nanometer lithography but on one of the modern 14 nanometer technologies (14nm +, or 14nm ++), with the company's largest LGA3647 chassis used only by Xeon processors to date. This means that Intel plans to launch a new home front end platform, along with the LGA2066 chassis,-X and-X.

Using a power supply of 1,600 watts in the system indicates that the processor power consumption will be extremely high, especially under And maximum load, with the official power source estimated to be about 265 watts or slightly less - the maximum figure set on the company's current server platform.

The set presented on stage - along with the massive external chiller unit needed to deliver the tremendous rush to 5 GHz

It may be premature to jump to any conclusions, but all the existing clues suggest that this new processor, and possibly other models launched with over 18 processing cores (i.e. based on the company's largest XCC chips today) will not directly replace the processors. Existing luxury Skylake-X - but will serve as the new and highest level reserved for the top users of the home, with prices that are very close (and maybe higher? Hard to know) to the corresponding Xeon Platinum processors, but compatible with operating systems and home-based software, and of course With ability Which does not exist on servers.

The unit on stage was based on a motherboard from home - And now it is known that she and her counterpart Dedicated product keys for the new platform that will offer a discount from the world of home-based consumer servers with a lot of money

You can disagree and dislike the way you chose To showcase its technological achievements on stage, but the bottom line is that this wild arms race that has suddenly awakened in the home market is a boon - in the long run we can see more and more With more cores in all price ranges thanks to it, with more and more applications that will support and utilize this potential properly for this, after years when we dared not even imagine any number over eight cores in the field. Which will be a success for all participants and practitioners.

The processor with the 28 cores and similar ones (if any) is going to be a very strange chicken on the market - but as long as it promotes technological competition between manufacturers - we really won't complain about that

  1. But it was clear from the beginning!
    Anyone who saw this tube could conclude that there was no small Jerican there.

  2. The question is how long we will see the fruits. When will 14nm ++ architecture be launched. And with it maybe 8 cores 16 cores.

  3. Nothing is certain, even after Intel's somewhat delusional announcement.
    But, indeed, the future looks rosy.
    Not sure this is the right path to progress, but hey,
    Who are we to complain about. Especially after the coma that Intel dropped on
    The market.
    And you know alone, who deserves the credit ……

    1. One thing is certain that Intel was caught with the pants down they didn't really have anything to display and they chose to display it.
      It would have been better to show us an octagonal transition to the i7 home market.

  4. As one who does not regularly follow these issues ... It seems to me that Intel just panicked at AMD's new processor and that after they apparently fell asleep on guard, came out announcing a processor that is as if in a new line but it is not.
    But apparently it really boils down to a huge battle later that it's already good.
    Funny video from Intel "Engineer".

  5. So have they taken an existing xeon processor on an existing xeon platform in lithography that has been in use for years and called it a new processor? Simply ashamed that's what they had in computex
