Most of the crazy new CPU headlines have been going to AMD over their new Ryzen family of processors, led by the new flagship Ryzen 7 1800X - but we've been hearing about 12C/24T chips, and even 16C/32T processors. But the 32C/64T goodness coming later this year from AMD with Naples is going to be huge for the prosumer/workstation/datacenter markets.

Now we have a tease of what looks like Intel's next-gen Xeon, based on a 32C/64T design, thanks to benchmarks spotted in Geekbench. The new Skylake-EP platform is teased, with the 32C/64T processor running at 2.3GHz, with 46MB of L3 cache, AVX-512 instruction set support, UPI, and the next-gen Stoem Lake OmniPath architecture - making the new Xeon a tasty mix of CPU architecture goodness.

Until now, Intel has only mentioned a 28C/56T processor coming in the Xeon line - but it looks like Intel is responding to AMD's threat of Naples coming in 32C/64T with its own Xeon CPU with 32C/64T of performance. The datacenter/server market is huge, so it only makes sense for chipzilla to get involved in the multi-threaded fight.
