Intel debuts 3rd Gen Xeon (Cooper Lake) Processors

Posted on June 18, 2020

Today Intel unveiled its third-generation Scalable Xeon processor (Cooper Lake) family for four- and eight-socket servers. Cooper Lake is designed to handle AI and analytics workloads running in the datacenter.

The company announced 11 new SKUs with between 16-28 cores, up to 3.1 Ghz base clock (up to 4.3 Ghz with Turbo Boost), and support for up to six memory channels.

Cooper Lake reportedly delivers an average 1.92x performance gain on cloud data analytics usage models and up to 1.98x higher database performance versus a standard five-year-old (Haswell) platform.

A number of system makers announced today that they are offering servers optimized for the new Intel processors.

OEM systems are expected to start shipping in the second half of 2020, and Supermicro and Lenovo today announced upgraded servers that leverage the new Xeon processors and Optane 200-series memory modules.
