Intel pending launch of processors for servers and data centers Sapphire Rapids. As we have learned in a video conference with Lisa Spelman and Ronak Singhal, this delay in this fourth generation of Xeon processors will overlaps with the next generation Intel Emerald Rapids. So we can see how both processors are available for some timegiving customers the option to which generation to jump from their current processors.
Intel customers running an older generation of processors will decide whether to wait for the Emerald Rapids or vice versa. will use Sapphire Rapids which will hit the market soonerit is expected that well into the next 2023. They will first be distributed to most urgent customers that need to make the change, then they will be distributed to some data centers and finally they will be available to the rest of the users. Thus, the Emerald Rapids roadmap will coincide with the Sapphire Rapidswhere they will live together for a while sharing a platform, which will be a advantage for customers.
In these next generations of processors for servers and data centers, the cost of energy is one of the main factors to consider. In addition, Sapphire Rapids will feature AMX accelerators on each core, DSA or Data Flow Accelerator, DLB or Dynamic Load Balancer, and Memory Analysis Analyzer or IMAA, plus now Intel QAT will be part of the SoC.
