What was once a rumor has now been confirmed: Intel will be adopting HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) and will be deploying it with its next-gen Sapphire Rapids CPU.

Intel's upcoming Sapphire Rapids CPUs will be deployed in two variants: one without HBM, and other variants with HBM. The new HBM-powered Sapphire Rapids CPUs are codenamed SPR-HBM, and will not be launching at the same time as the Sapphire Rapids CPUs without HBM.

Intel confirmed the news to AnandTech, where the company said: "Intel has stated to AnandTech that they are committed to making HBM-enabled Sapphire Rapids available to all enterprise customers and server vendors as well. These versions will come out after the main Sapphire Rapids launch, and entertain some interesting configurations. We understand that this means SPR-HBM will be available in a socketed configuration".

Intel will have its SPR-HBM variant out in late 2022, which was confirmed at International Supercomputing 2021 (ISC). We don't know how much HBM that Intel's next-gen Sapphire Rapids CPUs will have, but the previous leaks did tease up to 64GB of HBM2e memory, so if that's anything to go by we're in for a treat in late 202.
