Now we know when these updated chips will hit market, and Intel has pulled the dates in from even the October launches we expected earlier this summer.
We discussed some of the performance differences between the new Xeon design and older CPUs in an article last month ; we’ll be revisiting comparisons in consumer markets in the very near future.
Unlike the Skylake-X chips Intel has launched to-date, these new cores are based on the company’s HCC Xeon silicon.
Intel internally subdivides its Xeon processor families into three groups depending on which silicon they are based on.
With the launch of its 12-core part, Intel is bringing HCC silicon to its LGA 2066 HEDT platform and (hopefully) a return to soldered die.
