Intel’s Sapphire Rapids to be released in Q2 2022

Intel’s Sapphire Rapids to be released in Q2 2022

While Sapphire Rapids was scheduled for a late 2021 release, the launch has just been pushed back again to Q2 2022.

Intel has just given new information about their next generation of server processors, Sapphire Rapids, which will replace the current Ice Lake range.

First of all, the company has officially announced the arrival of an HBM version for the next Xeon, which had already been leaked in the past. This last one allowed to significantly increase the memory bandwidth and thus to offer better performances. The processors equipped with HBM can be coupled with DDR5, or not to use it.

Unfortunately, the brand also took the opportunity to announce a new delay in the launch of Sapphire Rapids. First planned for a release at the end of 2021, to respect their contract for the Aurora supercomputer, Intel now hopes for a production start in 2022 and thus an availability from the second quarter. The HBM versions should be available later in 2022 or early 2023 because of the delay.

The return of the HEDT range?

In addition, the site videocardz has just shared a new slide, indicating the arrival of Sapphire Rapids on the market of HEDT processors. Sapphire Rapids HEDT

According to this roadmap,Intel would finally give a replacement for their range of processors Cascade-Lake-X which, still based on skylake architecture struggles to compete with AMD Threadripper with a reduced number of cores to 18 against 64 for the reds.

This range would arrive in the second quarter of 2022 on a chipset named W790, so for the Workstation and not on a platform X790 for example. All this is still very vague, especially since the information could begin to date the fact that Intel as previously said, has shifted the release of this generation to the second quarter of 2022. It is unlikely that Intel will launch their Sapphire Rapids for servers and home users at the same time.
