After two years of delay, Intel is finally going to release Sapphire Rapids processors in a few weeks. This company plans to release two new series of processors under the W3400 and W2400 series. The specifications of these processors are well published and we know that the Xeon W9 3495X processor is going to be the flagship of this series, a processor that It has also recently been spotted on Geekbench.
Xeon W9-3495X processor on Geekbench
This new entry on the Geekbench database confirms that the Xeon W9 3495X processor is a 56-core processor, which is the highest number of cores among all Xeon Sapphire Rapids processors. This processor has a base frequency of 1.9 GHz and a boost frequency of 4.6 GHz. Also, L2 and L3 cache memories of this processor are 56 and 105 MB, respectively.
Regarding the specifications of the test system, we must say that the test of this processor was done using 128 GB of DDR5-4800 memory and the test platform is the new platform of Intel company, nicknamed Fishhawk Falls. The motherboard used in this test is a Supermicro X13SWA-TF motherboard.
Regarding the technical performance, the Xeon W9 3495X processor managed to get single-core and multi-core scores of 1284 and 36990 in Geekbench. The single-core score of this processor is 15% lower than that of Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5995WX. Comparing multi-core scores is a bit trickier, as Geekbench doesn’t record regular results for Threadripper processors. However, according to the latest tests of the Threadripper Pro 5995WX processor, this processor can easily pass the 40,000 multi-core score.
Intel has confirmed that the Xeon W3400/2400 processors will be officially released on February 15. The fact that these processors are already seen on the databases means that either the reviewers or the motherboard manufacturers are busy testing these processors.
