Intel announces massive 48-core chip, new processor for entry-level servers.

Intel on Monday announced two new members in its Xeon processor portfolio, including the 48-core Cascade Lake advanced performance processor.

The Cascade Lake advanced performance chip is expected to be released in the first half of 2019 and the Intel “Xeon E-2100” processor for entry-level servers is now available, the company said in a statement.

“The new parts represent a substantial upgrade over current Xeon chips, with up to 48 cores and 12 DDR4 memory channels per socket, supporting up to two sockets,” said Intel.

The two products build upon Intel’s foundation of 20 years of Intel “Xeon” platform leadership and give customers even more flexibility to pick the right solution for their needs.

“We remain highly focused on delivering a wide range of workload-optimised solutions that best meet our customers’ system requirements.

“The addition of Cascade Lake advanced performance CPUs and Xeon E-2100 processors to our Intel Xeon processor lineup once again demonstrates our commitment to delivering performance-optimized solutions to a wide range of customers,” said Lisa Spelman, Intel Vice President and General Manager of Intel Xeon products and Data Center Marketing.

Cascade Lake advanced performance chip is designed for the most demanding high-performance computing (HPC), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) workloads.

Apple which is looking to buy Intel’s modem division since last year is reportedly in “advanced stage” to strike a deal for $1 billion.

It was reported last month that the Cupertino-based iPhone maker is in talks to buy part of Intel’s modem business.

The latest report in Wall Street Journal details that an agreement “could be reached in the next week” if the talks don’t fall apart, reports TechCrunch.

Apple has been working on its own chips for quite some time. Acquiring Intel’s technology could help the iPhone maker accelerate its plans.

Intel on April 16 said it plans to cease working on modems for 5G, the next-generation of wireless technology expected to supercharge mobile connections.

Intel confirmed that the “surprise” settlement between Qualcomm and Apple – once pitted against each other over patent violation issues — pushed it to exit the mobile 5G race.

“In light of the announcement of Apple and Qualcomm, we assessed the prospects for us to make money while delivering this technology for smartphones and concluded at the time that we just did not see a path,” said Bob Swan, Intel CEO.
