Intel confirms adoption of Sapphire Rapids Gold Cove architecture
Text: KK Wong / News Center
Since AMD released the 7nm Sen2 architecture in 2018, the highest cores and threads built into the processor are still a long way from Intel, although Intel brought the new 10nm process to the next generation of Zion scalable processors in March. Most rose from 28 cores to 40 cores. However, some netizens disassembled the next-generation Sapphire Rapid processor and found that 4 chiplets had 20 cores, a maximum of 80 cores and 160 threads. Linux engineer Andy Klein recently revealed more information about the Sapphire Rapids processor.
Intel has again reported that the number of cores in the next-generation Zion Series Sapphire Rapids processors will increase from 40 cores in the third-generation Zion Scalable Ice Lake-SP to 56, and PCI Gen 5, CXL 1.1 (Express Link Calculate), DDR5 / HBM2M
even though,Foreign media tomshardware The next-generation Zion Series Sapphire Rapids processors are expected to provide more than 56 cores, and a more in-depth analysis of the Sapphire Rapids processor breaks down the video exposing a key player, Uyuki_NS. A single tile can contain up to 20 cores, and 4 tiles can form a core of up to 80 cores. Processors, of course, may block some cores to increase Intel CPU output output.In this case, Sapphire Rapids may provide 72-80 cores.
Recently, there was Intel engineer Andy Klein Linux kernelAn update has been submitted ( Koilakanth found the dream ) Revealed more information about the Sapphire Rapids processor. Andy Klein pointed out that “Sapphire uses the Rapids Golden Cove, not the willow cove” and confirmed that the previously rumored willow will be replaced by the Sapphire Rapids Golden Cove architecture core.The core of the cove architecture.
The news confirmed that the same Golden Cove processor architecture of the Alder Lake-S, the twelfth generation core series, will use sapphire, and will be based on the new 10nm enhanced superfin process. In addition, some motherboard manufacturers have revealed that they are developing new Core X Series products based on Sapphire Rapid. Therefore, Intel may have new products in the field of desktop processors that can be used in the AMD Raison Thread Tripper series.
