Fairly a number of benchmarks of Intel’s third Gen Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPU have leaked out which present a 14 core and 28 thread half and its respective outcomes inside varied exams. The Ice Lake-SP Xeon lineup can be launched subsequent 12 months as Intel just lately confirmed and can be primarily based on the brand new Ice Lake 10nm+ ‘Sunny Cove’ core structure.
Intel Ice Lake-SP Xeon Silver 14 Core & 28 Thread CPU Benchmarked – Single-Core Efficiency On Par With Core i9-10900Ok In ES State However Thanks To AVX-512
The CPU proven is an Ice Lake-SP Xeon Silver chip which is in an early engineering state. The chip options 14 cores and 28 threads. There’s 17.5 MB of L2 and 21 MB of L3 cache onboard. Leaker YuuKi_AnS states that the chip has a base clock of two.zero GHz and a lift clock of 4.zero GHz nevertheless the precise enhance working vary is between 1.eight to 2.zero GHz when working all cores.
This may very well be partially as a result of ES nature of this chip. The Xeon Silver Ice Lake-SP CPU comes with a 165W TDP and a most working temperature vary of 105C. The CPU is meant for use on the LGA 4189-5 socket. Based on the leaker, the chip may very well be a part of the Xeon Silver 4300 line which is predicted to launch subsequent 12 months.
Coming to the check outcomes, the Intel Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPU scores 553.1 points in a single-core and 10038.4 points within the multi-core check. The only-core outcomes put the Xeon chip neck-to-neck with a Core i9-10900Ok which is Intel’s quickest gaming chip that reinforces as much as 5.three GHz. That is spectacular for an engineering pattern that is working at vastly decrease clock speeds. In multi-core exams, the Xeon-SP ES CPU is about as quick because the Ryzen 9 3950X which is a 16 core and 32 thread half. This could put the Xeon-SP CPU in the identical ballpark because the Ryzen 9 5900X which is a 12 core and 24 thread half however with a lot greater multi-threaded efficiency over its predecessor because of the Zen three core structure.
Nonetheless, there’s one factor to notice that the newest CPU-z model was used which makes full use of AVX-512 and that could be a main contributor to Intel’s efficiency right here. With out AVX-512 acceleration, the Intel Ice Lake-SP Xeon ES CPU is way slower, scoring simply 371.6 points in single-core and 6363 points in multi-threaded exams. Different benchmarks embody Fritz Chess the place the chip scores 19715 points which is simply barely sooner than a first-generation eight core and 16 thread Ryzen CPU.
The leaker additionally posted some delidded footage of the Intel Ice Lake-SP CPU which appears to be like to characteristic a soldered design with gold solder and high-quality liquid steel thermal compound. The silicon lies on a separate bundle interposer that sits on prime of the principle PCB. One other fascinating element that’s uncovered by this delid which might additionally in any other case stay hidden is the truth that the chip makes use of an HCC (Excessive Core Depend) die and never the XCC (Excessive Core Depend) ones that permit for extra cores.
Among the main upgrades that Intel’s 10nm+ for Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPU will ship embody:
- 2.7x density scaling vs 14nm
- Self-aligned Quad-Patterning
- Contact Over Energetic Gate
- Cobalt Interconnect (M0, M1)
- 1st Gen Foveros 3D Stacking
- 2nd Gen EMIB
The Intel Ice Lake-SP lineup can be instantly competing in opposition to AMD‘s enhanced 7nm primarily based EPYC Milan lineup which is able to characteristic the model new 7nm Zen three core structure which gives an enormous 19 p.c uplift in IPC over the unique Zen core.
