Intel Sapphire Rapids-X Workstation CPUs Coming Later this Month with up top 56 Cores

Intel will be launching its Sapphire Rapids-based Xeon workstation processors later this month. Formerly known as the Core-X series offerings, these chips are aimed squarely at content creators, professionals and small server farms. Like the recently launched 4th Gen Xeon Scalable processors, we’re looking at a chiplet design with a quad-die layout. Each tile will feature 20 cores with one disabled for a total of 56 cores at the top of the stack.

The Sapphire Rapids-X “Workstation” processors will solely be composed of the Golden Cove “P-cores”. In contrast, Alder and Raptor Lake feature many low-power efficiency cores codenamed Gracemont.

Like the Core lineup, the Xeon Workstation family will be divided into four sections, namely W3, W5, W7 and W9. These will represent the HEDT counterparts of the Core i3, i5, i7, and i9 lineups, respectively. (mercyhealthplex.com) WCCFTech has discovered the launch dates of these chips.
