Intel recently introduced the Xeon W-3400 and Intel Xeon W-2400 Desktop Workstation Processors, code-named Sapphire Rapids.

Leading the way is the Intel Xeon w9-3495X, touted as Intel’s most powerful desktop workstation processor ever designed with up to 56 cores in a single socket, operational frequencies up to 4.8 gigahertz with Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, a redesigned memory controller and larger L3 cache, delivering up to 28% single-thread and up to 120% multithread performance improvements over the previous generation.

The new Desktop Workstation Processors are primarily built for professional creators and geared for massive performance for media and entertainment, engineering and data science professionals. Specifically Intel explains how this accomplished:

“With a breakthrough new compute architecture, faster cores and new embedded multi-die interconnect bridge (EMIB) packaging, the Xeon W-3400 and Xeon W-2400 series of processors enable unprecedented scalability for increased performance.”

Other notable Xeon W-3400 and Intel Xeon W-2400 Desktop Workstation Processors achievements include:

*Up to 105 megabytes of L3 cache for increased performance and data management.

*Eight channels of DDR5 RDIMM memory support enables up to 4 terabytes of memory capacity and increased memory bandwidth for large data sets and memory-intensive workloads.

*ECC memory and RAS technologies support improved integrity of critical data and system reliability.

*Up to 112 CPU PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes on Xeon W-3400 processors and up to 64 CPU PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes on Xeon W-2400 processors for multi-GPUs, SSDs and network cards give professionals configuration flexibility to meet their next task.
