Great if you can afford them

Intel has launched its new Xeon workstation processors, starting with the Intel Xeon W-3400 and Intel Xeon W-2400 families.

They include the Xeon W9-3495X chip, which the company has already named “Intel’s most powerful desktop workstation processor ever designed.”

Using the Sapphire Rapids silicon design, the processor has 56 cores inside, running on 105 megabytes of L3 cache. Its average clock speed is 1.9 GHz, but it can achieve up to 4.8 GHz with Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0.

They are costly -- $5,889 for the flagship. The cheapest chip in this lineup, the Xeon W3-2423, is priced at $359.

The new chips support up to 12 CPU PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes for the Xeon W-3400 processors and up to 64 CPU PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes with the Xeon W-2400 chips.

The new Xeons support a high degree of overclocking, thanks partly to DDR5 XMP 3.0 RDIMM memory overclocking options.

The new chips are available to pre-order and will be included in workstation PCs from March.
