Intel announced today its fastest server processors yet, the Xeon Cascade Lake Advanced Performance series with up to 48 cores. That’s right, the Xeon Scalable Processors are designed for servers, and boast up to 48 cores and 96 threads on a single package utilizing a Multi-Chip Package (MCP). Up to two chips could be installed on a multi-processor motherboard for a total of 96 cores. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
“The performance numbers were taken from a 2 socket server, featuring two 48 core chips which mean a total of 96 cores and 192 threads. The 12 channel memory will give a total of 24 DIMM slots and considering you can fill that up with some really dense ECC memory, we will be looking at up to 3 TB of memory support. In addition to ECC memory, the new Xeons will also support the Optane DC Persistent memory, featuring capacities of up to 512 GB. 24 of these in the 2S server would give a mind-boggling 12 Terabytes of system memory,” according to WCCF Tech.
