Intel has officially announced its 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable family codenamed Cooper Lake-SP. Based on the 14nm architecture, the Cooper Lake-SP family expands upon the Cascade Lake family by offering higher clock speeds, more advanced AI technologies, and scalability all the way up to 8S configurations on the Cedar Island platform.
Intel’s 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable CPU Family Codenamed Cooper Lake-SP Officially Launched – Xeon Platinum 8380HL Leads The Pack With Its 28 Cores, 4.3 GHz Peak Clocks & 250W TDP
During the press briefing on the 3rd Gen Xeon family, Intel termed them as the most advanced CPU for AI-specific workloads. We will look at what’s new and what kind of performance advantages the Cooper Lake-SP family brings but first of all, let’s talk about the platform itself. The Cooper Lake-SP CPUs will be supported by the Cedar Island platform that makes use of the LGA 4189 socket (socket P+).
This is by far the largest LGA socket that Intel has made and will be featured on two platforms, the Cedar Island which I just mentioned above and the Whitley platform for Ice Lake-SP processors that Intel says will also be launching later this year with first shipments being made in mid of 2020. The Cedar Island platform supports 4-way and 8-way CPU support which will be interconnected with a UPI (Ultra Path Interconnect). The CPUs will be connected to the Intel C620A chipset through DMI & the chipset itself will feature up to 20 PCIe Gen 3 lanes, 10 USB 3.0 ports, and 14 SATA Gen 3 ports.
