Intel’s Xeon Emerald Rapids CPUs Could Wield Up To 64 Cores

{Hardware} leaker (*2*)YuuKi_AnS(*20*) (opens in new tab)(*16*) has supplied a sneak peek of what shall we be expecting from Intel’s next-generation Xeon Emerald Rapids processors. It’s humorous as a result of (*4*)Sapphire Rapids(*20*) (opens in new tab)(*16*) hasn’t landed, however the specs of its successor are already hitting the rumor mill. Even if the leaker claims that the specs got here from a record allegedly dispensed to OEMs lately, we propose you way the tips with an open thoughts.

Like Sapphire Rapids, Emerald Rapids proceed to depend at the Intel 7 (rebranded 10nm Enhanced SuperFin) procedure node. The impending information heart chips will slip into the similar Eagle Circulate platform with the LGA4677 (Socket E) socket as Sapphire Rapids. Intel hasn’t showed which microarchitecture will energy Emerald Rapids, despite the fact that. Sapphire Rapids will include Golden Cove cores; subsequently, Emerald Rapids would most likely wield Raptor Cove cores.

Whilst Sapphire Rapids have seemed to most sensible out at 56 cores, Emerald Rapids may push it as much as 64 cores to compare AMD’s EPYC processors. The issue is that Emerald Rapids could have very tricky festival. AMD’s Genoa rocks as much as 96 cores, while  (*3*)Bergamo(*20*) (opens in new tab)(*16*), which launches in 2023, could have as much as 128 cores. Intel remains to be in the back of AMD on the subject of core counts.

Emerald Rapids’ TDP would possibly range between 150W and 350W with superb scalability. The processor improve 1S, 2S, 4S, 8S, and better configurations by way of xNC improve. 4 UPI 2.0 hyperlinks in step with Emerald Rapids processor at the next width (x24) be offering switch speeds as much as 20 GT/s.


8-channel reminiscence stays a function on Emerald Rapids; then again there may be stepped forward reminiscence pace improve. The processors natively improve DDR5-5600 in a 1DPC setup and DDR5-4800 in a 2DPC configuration. The Eagle Circulate platform will allow as much as 16 DDR5 reminiscence slots in step with socket. The specification sheet mentions improve for 24Gb reminiscence modules. Emerald Rapids additionally embraces Intel’s Crow Go Power Reminiscence (Crystal Ridge 3.0) modules. Even if Intel has canned its Optane reminiscence trade, Crow Go will nonetheless make it to the marketplace. Then again, the chipmaker may not expand any long run Optane merchandise past Crow Go.

In relation to enlargement, Emerald Rapids ship as much as 80 PCIe 5.0 lanes. The platform supplies PCIe bifurcation improve at x16, x8, x4, and x2 by way of PCIe 4.0 speeds. The Emmitsburg chipset, however, provides 20 PCIe 3.0 lanes, 1G Ethernet for Manageability improve, and an x8 DMI connection limited to the PCIe 3.0 usual. AMD hasn’t percentage the collection of PCIe 5.0 lanes for Genoa or Bergamo. For distinction, AMD EPYC chips were providing 128 PCIe lanes for a few generations now.

In contrast to Sapphire Rapids, Intel is assured that Emerald Rapids will meet its 2023 cut-off date.
