Thanks to the diagnostic tool and the AIDA64 benchmarks, new details about the processors are known Intel Sapphire Rapids-SPspecifically from an engineering sample equipped with 56 cores and 112 processing threads (the high-end configuration) under the architecture golden cove to a manufacturing process Intel 7.
These cores were running at a base/turbo clock of 1.90/3.30GHz (3.70 GHz for a single core) and were accompanied by 112 MB of L3 cache and 105 MB of L3 cache. All this translates into a TDP of 270W and the CPU was tested on a motherboard with LGA4677 socket with Intel C741 chipset with 1TB of 4800MHz DDR5 RAM with CL40-39-38-76 latencies.
Most interesting of all is that it is indicated that this processor will generate a consumption in its final version of 350Wwhich rises to 420W when the Turbo frequencies (PL2) are reached. Of course, the BIOS power limit is in the 764W when using AVX-512 instructions. As indicated, this maximum consumption would only be maintained for a maximum of 32 seconds, while the processor can withstand a maximum temperature of 99ºC.
According to the leaked information, it should be remembered that its high-end CPU will be able to reach 56 cores and 112 threads seasoned with the most modern technologies on the market, such as memory access DDR5 in the form of a configuration Octa(8)-Channel @ 4800MHz and nothing less to offer up to 80x PCI-Express 5.0 lanes per processor. Added to this is the ability to access up to 64 GB of HBM2e memory Promising performance improvements of up to 180% over AMD EPYC MILAN processors in computational fluid dynamics (OpenFOAM) workloads.
