Intel recently launched The third-generation Xeon is scalable The CPU used in the data center means that the Xeon W lineup for workstations should not be too far behind.Technology provider Comparison source Several Intel’s upcoming Ice Lake Xeon W 10nm chips have been put on its online store, indicating that they will soon compete with AMD Ryzen Threadripper chips.
According to alleged Leaked PowerPoint slides, Shared via Twitter in April, Intel’s Xeon W-3300 series is expected to be equipped with as many as 38 Sunny Cove CPU coreHowever, we know that the Ice Lake architecture can support up to 40 cores, as seen in the third-generation Xeon Scalable processors. We suspect that this chip manufacturer wants to avoid product cannibalization.

As discovered by Twitter users momomo_us, CompSource has listed the Xeon W-3300 series of chips, starting from W-3323, the price is 1,071.45 US dollars, the highest is W-3375, the price is 6,196.32 US dollars. Compared with the existing Xeon W-3200 (Cascade Lake) series, we expect the maximum number of cores to increase by 36%, as well as all the advantages of the new Ice Lake micro-architecture. In addition to maximizing the number of cores, Ice Lake also increased the maximum number of L3 caches to 57MB, an increase of 48% compared to the Xeon W-3200 series.
Unfortunately, CompSource did not disclose the full specifications of the Xeon W-3300 components. Given that 57MB L3 Cache On Xeon W-3375, we expect this to be the flagship part, with 38 cores and 76 Thread.
CompSource lists the various Xeon W-3300 processors with the biggest improvements Clock speed 4 GHz, which proves the specifications in the so-called Intel PowerPoint slides.
Xeon W-3300 should be more efficient than Xeon W-3200, because the former uses Intel’s 10nm process node, while the latter uses the 14nm process node. Please note that Intel is using its first-generation 10nm manufacturing process for the Xeon W-3300 processor, which explains the low operating clock.The clock speed should increase with the use of subsequent processors 10nm SuperFin Process node.
There is no news about Ice Lake-X (ICL-X), which means that Intel may abandon this generation of high-end desktop (HEDT) community. Due to the lack of the Ice Lake-X lineup, the Xeon W-3300 series may go hand-in-hand with AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper (Pro) 3000 processors, using Zen 2 cores. Xeon W-3300 provides similar functions, such as 64 PCIe 4.0 Lane opening Ryzen Thread Ripper And eight-channel support Ryzen Thread Ripper Pro.
Of course, the Xeon W-3300 will hardly become Best CPU In some areas, you can choose to be better than Ryzen Threadripper (Pro). The latter provides up to 64 cores and is cheaper. The difference in process nodes (7nm and 10nm) also gives AMD’s chips an advantage in terms of clock speed. The problem is that AMD may soon launch a Ryzen Threadripper 5000 chip with Zen 3 core, which makes the situation with the Xeon W-3300 processor more difficult.
Xeon W-3300 processor will join the new LGA4189 CPU socket And bring many attractive features. First, the core heavy chip will support up to 64 PCIe 4.0 channels. There are also rumors that support up to 8 channels of DDR4-3200 ECC memory, Opening the door to a single system with up to 4TB of memory.
