Subsequent-Gen Intel Granite Rapids-AP Xeon CPU Pictured, Coming To LGA 7529 Servers Subsequent Yr

Intel’s next-generation Granite Rapids-AP Xeon CPU which will probably be coming to LGA 7529 servers subsequent yr has been pictured.

Intel Granite Rapids Xeon CPU Smiles For The Digicam! AP Variant With Up To 60 Cores At 500W

The Intel LGA 7529 socket is designed across the “Birch Stream” platform which can home the sixth Gen Granite Rapids-AP and Sierra Forest CPUs. It will not be the primary time that we’ve got seen the LGA 7529 socket nevertheless it seems like Intel has already began transport its next-gen Granite Rapids chips to its very first clients for analysis and testing functions.

In photos leaked by Yuuki_AnS, we get to put out eyes for the primary time on an early Intel Granite Rapids-AP CPU which contains a large IHS on the entrance and an insane quantity of contact pads overlaying the again. This can be a large chip for an enormous socket that may basically home a complete of six AMD Ryzen CPUs within it.

Throughout an investor webinar on March 29, 2023, Intel introduced that Sierra Forest will embody 144 cores per socket. (Credit score: Intel Company)

Extra particulars supplied by the leaker state that there are three Intel Granite Rapids-AP CPUs which can be circulating in leaks which embody an 18-core variant with 250W TDP, a 35-core variant with 350W TDP, and a 60-core variant with 500W TDP.  Moreover, we additionally get to know the precise CPU Compute and IO die for the Granite Rapids chips. The Granite Rapids-SP chips are anticipated to make use of a minimum of three compute dies and that additionally appears to be true for the Granite Rapids-AP chips. Intel’s Compute die for Granite Rapids CPUs will probably be composed of cores, cache, and reminiscence controllers.

These SKUs are additional divided into two variants, the X1 chips which have only one compute die per bundle and have been powered-on, and the X3 chips which have three compute dies per bundle and will probably be marked as “PRQ” or Manufacturing Launch Qualification chips. Moreover, we additionally get to study concerning the Granite Rapids I/O die which can supply:

  • PCIe 5.0
  • CXL 2.0 (Compute Specific Hyperlink)
  • UPI 2.0 (Extremely Path Interconnect)
  • QAT (QuickAssist)
  • DLB (Dynamic Load Steadiness)
  • DSA (Information Streaming Accelerator)
  • IAA (In-Reminiscence Analytics Accelerator)

The Intel sixth Gen Granite Rapids-SP/AP CPUs and the Sierra Forest CPUs will probably be using vastly totally different chip designs. The Granite Rapids chips will probably be primarily based on the “Intel 3” course of node and reap the benefits of the model new Redwood Cove cores whereas the Sierra Forest chips can even use the identical “Intel 3” course of node however function simply Crestmont E-Cores in as much as 144-core SKUs.

Intel Granite Rapids-AP CPUs are anticipated to function as much as 120 cores with 12-channel DDR5 reminiscence assist and 96 PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes whereas Granite Rapids-SP CPUs are anticipated to function as much as 80 cores with 8-channel DDR5  reminiscence assist and 88 PCIe Gen 5.0 lanes.

Intel already supplied a demo of a Sierra Forest 144-Core CPU operating with 100% well being just a few months in the past however the precise launch is slated for 1H of 2024 whereas Granite Rapids CPUs will probably be launching in 2H 2024 and change the upcoming fifth Gen Emerald Rapids Xeon CPUs.
