Intel Ice Lake Xeon W to Challenge AMD Threadripper With 38 Cores


Intel recently launched its 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable CPU for data centers, which means that the Xeon W lineup for workstations shouldn’t be far behind. Technology provider CompSource has already listed a couple of Intel’s looming Ice Lake Xeon W 10nm chips on its online store, pointing to an upcoming core-heavy rival to AMD Ryzen Threadripper chips. 

According to an alleged leaked PowerPoint slide, shared via Twitter in April, Intel’s Xeon W-3300 series is expected to sport up to 38 Sunny Cove CPU cores. However, we know that the Ice Lake architecture is capable of up to 40 cores, as seen on the 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable processors. We suspect the chipmaker wants to avoid product cannibalization.
