Intel Launches Xeon W-3175X CPU with 28 Unlocked Cores

Bigger, Faster, Stronger Xeon

Intel is announcing the availability of their new Xeon W-3175X CPU, an unlocked 28-core workstation powerhouse built for select, highly-threaded and computing-intensive applications. That is 28-cores and 56-threads with an adjustable multiplier. So users can tailor the performance depending on the workload.

The W-3175X’ base frequency is 3.1GHz with a 255W TDP, and has a maximum single core turbo frequency of 4.3GHz. It also has a 38.5MB Smart Cache and offers up to 68 PCIe lanes and six channel DDR4. Since it is a Xeon, it supports up to 768GB of both consumer grade memory and registered memory (RDIMMs) with ECC.

Its closest comparison on the AMD side is their EPYC 7601 which has 32-cores/64-threads and has a base frequency of 2.2GHz and turbo frequency of 3.2GHz at a 180W TDP.

While overclocking is possible, 255W TDP at 3.1GHz will draw a lot of power. So pushing this CPU to 4.5GHz will require both proper cooling and a motherboard with a significantly beefy VRM.

On the CPU cooler side, Intel has teamed up with Asetek for the 690LX-PN all-in-one liquid cooler. This is a custom created solution sold separately by Asetek, which Intel approves for overclocking.

How Much is the Intel Xeon W-3175X Processor?

The new Xeon W-3175X has a retail price of $2999 USD and requires an LGA3647 motherboard. In comparison, AMD’s 7601 has a retail price of $4200 USD.

    Seriously, this will be great chip for everybody who can’t afford it anyway. Board(s?) only for SI, CPU which will be so limited in retail channel that you won’t even notice it.

    Intel lost the plot.*

    Intel go find your brain and balls, then release something really inventive for the first time in… oooo 15 years.

    * – perfect buy if electricity where you live cost at most 0.01 USD/kWh.
