Intel debuts the new Intel Xeon W-3400 and Intel Xeon W-2400 desktop workstation processors (code-named Sapphire Rapids), led by the Intel Xeon w9-3495X, Intel’s desktop workstation processor. The Xeon processors provide performance for engineering and data science professionals. With a new compute architecture, faster cores and new embedded multi-die interconnect bridge (EMIB) packaging, the Xeon W-3400 and Xeon W-2400 series of processors enable scalability for increased performance, the company notes.
“Our new Intel Xeon desktop workstation platform is uniquely designed to unleash the innovation and creativity of professional creators, artists, engineers, designers, data scientists and power users—built to tackle both today’s most demanding workloads as well as the professional workloads of the future,” says Roger Chandler, Intel vice president and general manager, Creator and Workstation Solutions, Client Computing Group.
Support for DDR5 RDIMM memory, PCIe Gen 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6E gives professionals the platform technologies they require for compute workloads. Additionally, support for Intel vPro enterprise technology, alongside error-correcting code memory; and reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) technologies, ensures workstation uptime is maximized, Intel says.
Available with up to 56 cores in a single socket, the Intel Xeon w9-3495X processor features a redesigned memory controller and larger L3 cache, delivering single-thread and multithread performance improvements. Operational frequencies up to 4.8 gigahertz with Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 provide professional users with compute performance in daily workloads.
Xeon W-3400 and W-2400 workstation processors are available now from industry partners, with system availability beginning in March. The recommended customer price for the Intel Xeon W Processor family starts at $359 (Xeon w3-2423) and scales up to $5,889 (Xeon w9-3495X).
