32-Core Ice Lake Faster Than 64-Core AMD EPYC – Intel Reveals 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable Ice Lake-SP Processor Performance



At Supercomputing 2020, Intel has revealed some additional details about its upcoming 3rd generation Xeon Scalable Ice Lake-SP processors, due to be officially released in Q1 2020. Intel shared some preliminary performance numbers and said the server-running two 32-core Ice Lake processors are faster than a machine powered by two 64-core AMD EPYC processors.

In addition to revealing some of the performance metrics for Ice Lake-SP processors, Intel has also confirmed that it is conducting a wide selection of its next-generation processors, codenamed Sapphire Rapids, which are manufactured using the 10nm Enhanced SuperFin process.

The upcoming 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor will have up to 32 cores and eight memory channels that will support up to 6TB DDR4-3200 / Intel Optane persistent memory. In addition, the new processor will support PCIe 4.0 connectivity as well as a range of new security technologies, including crypto accelerators.

lntel states that the new Sunny Cove microarchitecture, combined with specialized accelerators and expanded memory support, will allow the new processors to be significantly faster than their predecessors based on the rather outdated Skylake microarchitecture. The new processors are manufactured using Intel’s second generation 10nm process technology, which is also used in Ice Lake client products.

Intel has yet to officially unveil its 3rd generation Xeon Scalable Ice Lake processors, but a number of its customers, including the Korea Meteorological Administration, The Max Planck Computing and Data Facility, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), University of Tokyo, Osaka University and Oracle have already announced plans to deploy new processors to meet high performance computing needs.
