Performance and Configurations

Here we see that the performance of these crazy CPUs is roughly the same or better than a single Xeon Platinum 8180.

Here we see a two-socket AMD EPYC 7601 system (64C/128T) thrown at a two-socket Intel Xeon Platinum 9242 system (96C/192T ). We can see the Xeon offering pretty solid performance, although these are self-generated results, so we will wait to see how things will turn out.

Intel mentioned they will be selling the S9200WK series with the motherboard, as in they will solder the CPUs to the motherboard and then sell them as a solution. The 1U solution looks absolutely insane, that's 112cores and 224 threads in a small sled, which obviously has to be watercooled. A 2U solution is a bit taller and allows for either air or liquid cooling.

In the 1U solution, the M.2 cards can sit in a riser cards, and PCI-E cards get a tool-less attachment mechanism.
