In the latest tech news, Intel has developed a 32-core/64-thread monster CPU, which is known as the Skylake ‘Purley’ flagship.
Details of the said chip were leaked through an unknown online performance benchmark. Now, it is most likely to be the Intel Xeon E5 2699 v5.
The 32-core monster CPU from Intel is able to have some impressive numbers during the benchmark. It has a multi-core score of 49,647, getting 3,526 in terms of single-core performance. A lot of experts believe that Intel’s upcoming CPU undoubtedly the most powerful CPU out there in the market.
This is because the record that the said CPU was able to hit is the highest benchmark that was ever achieved by any existing CPU. As for as what the leak has disclosed, the chip is intended for an upgraded LGA 3647 socket and will be operating with a base clock of 2.1GHz.
This is despite the benchmark details showing it to be capable of running at 2.3GHz. Intel has also promised an improved power efficiency, as well as supporting 6-channel DDR4, which is way up from 4-channel.
The 32-core monster CPU was supposed to just be maxed out at up to 28-cores only. However, Intel is said to have changed their minds and opted towards improving the ante in order to match and compete with AMD’s very own Naples processors. Apparently, AMD’s CPU currently offers up to 32-cores as well.
AMD had officially unveiled its Naples CPU just a couple of weeks prior to the leak of Intel’s 32-core counter. This also offers some very impressive performance levels when it is paired up and compared to the present Xeon E5-2699A v4, which only runs at 22-cores only. These two up and coming chips are both aimed at making a big splash in the processor market.
It is also good to note that pricing also play a key role in the competition between these two beefy and very powerful processors. The leak has also game warning that the Intel 32-core monster CPU will be carrying a hefty price tag. Despite it not being a 32-core processor, the Surface Pro 4 is really radical.
Has Microsoft at last crafted a tablet that can reasonably, without considerable compromise, replace your laptop? Short of going back to the drawing board on the battery, this looks as close as it’s going to get.
