Intel Xeon W-3175X: 28 cores for home
Continues processor shows from Intel. In this post we will talk about the most powerful non-server processor Intel. Yes, indeed, despite belonging to the Xeon class, the W-3175X is designed for workstations - the origins of the W family are drawn to the time of the Xeon Scalable output . Only this station will be more powerful than another server, and it will not yield to consumption: 28 cores are not a joke, and TDP is 255 watts too.
The Intel Xeon W-3175X processor is based on the Skylake / Cascade Lake micro-architecture and has a new form factor LGA3647. The base frequency of the processor is 3.1 GHz, the maximum for one core is 4.3 GHz, but the bus multiplier is unlocked, so that the final frequency is limited only by the skill of the overclocker and the electric bill. At Computex this summer, Intel demonstrated a system where 28 W-3175X cores ran at 5 GHz (shown in CDRV), breaking the absolute record in the Cinebench R15 benchmark. It is clear that this is not the limit, but it sounds beautiful and looks too. It is recommended to use water cooling for the W-3175X, however, the network already has a photo and an air cooler with two large fans and a huge radiator.
Once again, the main characteristics.
|Frequency||3.1 / 4.3 GHz|
|Cores / Threads||28/56|
|Memory||Up to 512 GB DDR4 ECC|
|PCIe lines||44 (+24 on the chipset)|
ASUS has already introduced a motherboard for the Intel Xeon W-3175X - ROG Dominus Extreme , whose mass sales will begin with the sales of the processor in December 2018. So we are waiting for new FLOPS and other records from overclockers. And the price of all this is also waiting, yes. Itself is interesting.
