Intel saw how its processor specs were leaked Xeon Sapphire Rapids-WS, the direct rival of AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors. These processors will be able to offer a maximum configuration of 56 cores and 112 threads processing under the architecture Golden Cove@Intel 7 (same architecture as the Alder Lake P-Core), which will allow the creation of platforms up to 112 cores and 224 threads (Dual Socket systems).

More precisely, we will have two Xeon W9 processors with 56-core (112 threads) and 36-core (72 threads) configurations, three Xeon W7 28, 24 and 20 cores (56, 48 and 40 threads), and four Xeon W5 that they are divided into two molds of 16 and 12 cores (32/24 threads), the difference being the frequencies and the TDP.

60-core Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP

CPU Cores / Threads Freq. Base L3 cache PDT
Xeon W9-3495X 56/112 1.90GHz 105 MB 350W
Xeon W9-3475X 36/72 2.20GHz 82.5 MB 300W
Xeon W7-3465X 28/56 2.50GHz 75 MB 300W
Xeon W7-3455 24/48 2.50GHz 67.5 MB 270W
Xeon W7-3445 20/40 2.60GHz 52.5 MB 270W
Xeon W5-3435X 16/32 3.10GHz 45 MB 270W
Xeon W5-3433 16/32 2.00GHz 45 MB 220W
Xeon W5-3425 12/24 3.20GHz 30 MB 270W
Xeon W5-3423 12/24 2.10GHz 30 MB 220W

As you have seen, the top model is the Intel Xeon W9-3495Xwho wears his 56 hearts at a base frequency of 1.90GHz backed by 105MB L3 cache memory. Despite the low frequencies, we are talking about a TDP of 350Wit is therefore obvious that the cores will not be able to go much faster due to severe thermal limitations.

All of these processors would support configurations of 8 channels of DDR5 memory @ 4800 MHz (up to 4 TB), access to a maximum of 112 PCI-Express 5.0 lanesand would arrive with a new platform named “Maverick” with the socket LGA4677 supported by a chipset Intel W790.
