Intel is ramping up into the release of its next-gen Xeon "Emerald Rapids" CPU family, with some new information teasing the flagship 64-core, 128-thread Xeon 8592+ processor.
The new Intel Xeon 8592+ processor was spotted in its engineering sample form, with a CPU base clock of 1.9GHz and a boost clock of 3.9GHz, but with this being an ES processor, we should expect higher clocks when the processor is in retail form. We have a base TDP of 350W, but it can be adjusted to 420W while peak power will reach 500W. The pre-release sample seems to have a 922W peak power, but I hope we don't see that number in retail form.
Intel's new Emerald Rapids-based Xeon 8592+ processor will have 448MB of combined cache (120MB L2 cache + 320MB of L3 cache), which is a near doubling over the 232MB of cache on the previous-gen flagship Xeon 8490H "Sapphire Rapids" CPU.
At Intel's big Innovation 2023 event, CEO Pat Gelsinger confirmed that the company would adopt a 3D Cache approach for CPUs in the future - though it won't be a part of the upcoming Meteor Lake roadmap. The confirmation came during a Q&A session where someone asked if Intel was considering adopting something similar to AMD's 3D V-Cache processors.
AMD 3D V-Cache powered Ryzen X3D processors have proved to be excellent performers for PC gaming. However, the 3D stacking of cache is a TSMC packaging technology for chips that AMD has taken advantage of - so it's not proprietary.
Intel confirming that it is planning to adopt a similar thing for upcoming CPUs is interesting stuff. Still, Pat Gelsinger added, "We're doing that differently in our composition," with the company looking to stack CPU compute on top of memory. And Intel will leverage its own process technology and foundries to deliver the technology.
Global entry! We have teamed up with Kingston to give away a couple of its awesome products to one very lucky winner.
Kingston KC3000 PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD delivers next-level performance using the latest Gen 4x4 NVMe controller and 3D TLC NAND. Upgrade the storage and reliability of your system to keep up with demanding workloads and experience better performance with software applications such as 3D rendering and 4K+ content creation. With formidable speeds up to 7,000MB/s1 read/write, it ensures improved workflow in high-performance desktop and laptop PCs making it ideal for power users who require the fastest speeds on the market.
Global entry! We have teamed up with Patriot to give away some of its awesome new products this week. In total, there will be three winners who each have the opportunity of taking home one of the below three products.
"The Viper Xtreme 5 is designed to operate at higher speeds with lower voltages without generating as much heat. This lower power consumption is possible due to the integrated high-quality PMIC which creates more room for overclocking without exceeding safe voltages and temperature limits. (Overclocking requires more power, so a high-quality power supply with adequate wattage and stability can help ensure stable and reliable overclocking.)"
"The Viper Venom DDR5 was created with the desire to deliver premier speeds to blow the competition away. Built with Viper's groundbreaking technology, the Viper Venom DDR5 can far surpass the limits of DDR4 modules to deliver twice the speed and bandwidth. With Viper's innovative onboard power and thermal management technology, this module features efficient operation and lower power consumption for longer module lifespans.
Global entry! We have teamed up with Netac to give away two of its awesome Shadow Series RGB DDR5-4800 (16GB x 2) dual-channel memory kits.

Global entry! We have teamed up with Sabrent to give away two of its newest products. The details on each are listed below, and both would make for a great addition to an upcoming gaming PC build.
One winner will take home a 32GB Sabrent Rocket DDR5 16GB 4800MHz dual-channel memory kit (worth $270). We recently reviewed these memory modules and found them to be able to hit a very impressive 6800MHz OC at C40.
It seems like DDR4 has ruled the roost forever. Finally, new motherboards and architectures have allowed memory to grow wings with the advent of DDR5. Improved clock speeds promise up to twice the bandwidth of DDR4, all with lower voltage for better efficiency. To further help with that last bit, DDR5 has on-board power management to reduce motherboard cost and complexity.
