On November 19, According to foreign reports, Intel will call off the 10th generation Core-X (Cascade Lake-X) series and plan to launch the Sapphire Rapids Xeon workstation series in place of Core X.
News is coming as Intel is dragging the release of high-end performance desktop from Core X. Intel distinctly needs to revamp to something newer, like a chip power boosted with PCIe Gen5 standard and DDR5 memory technology to make the standards of the tag. Howbeit, the new Sapphire Rapids series will comply with the criteria mentioned above.
As per reports from Videocardz, Intel Sapphire Rapid could branch into two platforms; one is to carry up the next Xeon series based on Ice Lake-X, up to 56 cores, eight channels of DDR5 memory, lightweight tracks, and doubling bandwidth, low power consumption DDR5 memory, 350W TDP, and, what comes as the rallying part, up to 112 PCIe Gen5 lanes. In addition, Intel Sapphire will make a debut into rig in Q3 of 2022, and the W790 chipset will also make a way into the tech market at the same time. The third quarter of 2022 will be a great year in the semiconductor industry history as the 13th Gen processors will be battling against AMD’s Zen 4.
The new processor is expected to land with an e-core count bump and clock speed increases. Tech enthusiasts can pause for a while and give your downtime to DDR4, and most importantly, you are asked not to auction the DDR4 kit as Z690 motherboards will receive 13th Gen processors after a BIOS update, and it will pursue with DDR4 memory. Furthermore, the high-performance model of Core-X is i9-10980XE, and it was released in November 2019. It comes with 18 cores and 36 threads and is equipped with 165W TDP, which supports four channels of memory and 32 PCIe 3.0 channels.
