    Phoronix: Intel Launches 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable "Ice Lake" CPUs With Up To 40 Cores

    Intel today is introducing the 3rd Gen "Ice Lake" Xeon Scalable processors that top out with the Xeon Platinum 8380 offering 40 cores with a 2.3GHz base frequency and 3.0GHz all-core turbo while having a 270 Watt TDP and launching for ~$8099 USD. Here are more details on the Intel Ice Lake Xeon Scalable line-up.

    That's quite a price cut from the $10k the Cascade Lake 8280 sold for. Intel must be feeling some serious pressure from EPYC. Not sure I'd want to be intel's PCIe-4 guinea pig though. The entire server ecosystem of PCIe-4 cards was validated on EPYC. No doubt there will be all kinds of bugs with using these devices on Intel.

      Milan Rouge. AMD is at what, 7% server market share now. I think it'll get interesting over the next year.

      But kudos to Intel for doing a 40 core, rather than 32. IT planning inertia is a big hurdle for any vendor. If Intel can keep swatting the flies away, they should be able to hold their own for a long while yet. In 2-3 years, when their US fabs come online, they'll be able to counter with sheer volume, if not new tech.

      But as it stands stands now, tech for tech, Intel is dog paddling. Even at 10nm.

        From the desk of "Kicking" Pat Gelsinger. Today I am proud to announce Intel is back!! With the release of the WILDLY OXYMORONIC named "Ice Lake" we introduce the WORLD'S MOST EXPENSIVE SPACE HEATER !! Also in order to call it "Scalable" we've added an industry first "Dial" on the CPU itself so you can scale up as much heat as you want or need. Of course, the dial is BIG and BLUE !!

          270 Watt TDP

            So this is 70% more cores and 80% the price of last gen, using a node that was delayed for several years and seems to have poor yields. I imagine Intel's profit margins on these chips will be some of the worst they've seen.

              Intel 8099/40 = $202/core
              AMD 7890/64 = $123/core

              Benchmarks will be interesting.

                Ohhh...it'll hit 320+ Watt TDP easy in real world usage. It'll hit this now with certain benchmarks.

                Also just Google Anadtechs Article on the Ice Lake Scalable CPU ( I said Google it because Phoronix's stupid algorithm flags links to articles as spam half the time ).

                Why?

                Because they test Ice Lake SP with another gen Xeon, a Milan based Epyc and an 80 core Ampere Altra.

                Let's just say that Ice Lake is a joke. At ANY price but PARTICULARLY at $8,100 USD. It loses in BIG to Milan and WORSE to the ARM based Ampere Altra in muti-threaded workloads. It only margiinally wins some and loses other benchmarks in single threaded workloads to Milan. Ice Lake UTTERLY gets DESTROYED in Java benchmarks to Milan.

                But the even CLEARER takeaway is oddly this. The 80 core ARM based Ampere Altra is the winner over both AMD Milan Epyc and BIGLY over Ice Lake SP. Lower average TDP, 50 PERCENT INCREASE in memory bandwidth over Ice Lake SP and 10 PECENT over Milan and HALF THE PRICE of Ice Lake SP.

                The ARM based Ampere Altra even beats both Milan and Ice Lake Muti-threaded benchmarks. And that's with ARM's N1 cores on ARMarch v8. Version 9 is out now aand that will be going into ARMs successor to N1 and the Poseidon cores.

                What the Anandrech article about Ice Lake does is paradoxically show that the ARM based Ampere Altra is the CLEAR WINNER by far for both Power/IPC winner and Cost/IPC winner. And for Muti-threaded workloads it's the winner REGARDLESS cost or TDP.

                The Age of ARM is here. x86 is now legacy.

                  Let's see if this gets flagged for spam.

                    haha you nailed it... the time of intel is over. if someone want X86_64 he buy AMD and if someone don't care about X86_64 then he buy ARM Ampere Altra...

                    in absolutly no case someone should buy inte..
