Intel has confirmed in its latest roadmap that its next-generation 10nm Xeon family codenamed Sapphire Rapids is on track for launch in 2021. The next-generation family will be replacing both, Intel Ice Lake-SP 10nm & Cooper Lake-SP 14nm families with a full top-to-bottom CPU portfolio, making use of a brand new CPU architecture which will be optimized for data center and servers.
Intel Achieves First Silicon Power On For Next-Gen Sapphire Rapids Xeon CPUs, On Track For Launch in 2021
Intel’s 2021 lineup of Xeon Scalable Processors will be all Sapphire Rapids unlike the current 14nm and 10nm segmentation we see with Cooper Lake (4S-8S) and Ice Lake (1S-2S) families. The lineup will consist of various SKUs and will be supported by the Eagle Stream platform. Intel will also bring their latest AMX (Advanced Matrix) instruction for next-gen Deep Learning boost which would offer increased Artificial Intelligence performance on the Sapphire Rapids lineup.
Intel has already achieved its first ‘Power On’ of the Sapphire Rapids silicon and will be going into production in 2021 with the launch in 2H 2020. The Aurora supercomputer will be the first of many HPC centric products that will make use of the Sapphire Rapids Xeon CPUs. The Sapphire Rapids chips will be featured alongside Intel’s first 7nm discrete GPU, the Xe-HPC based Ponte Vecchio, in the Aurora supercomputer.
