Intel's next-gen Xeon 'Granite Rapids' CPU leaks: up to 128 cores

Anthony Garreffa | Oct 18, 2022 1:31 AM CDT

Intel's next-gen Xeon "Granite Rapids" CPUs have been detailed in some new leaks from Moore's Law is Dead, where we're now expecting up to 128 cores from Granite Rapids... and that's a big deal.

Intel's next-gen Xeon 'Granite Rapids' CPU leaks: up to 128 cores 06

If we see next-gen Intel Xeon "Granite Rapids" processors with 128 cores, this will be the biggest jump in Intel enterprise technology in over 10 years, using the new Redwood Cove+ CPU architecture. The updated Redwood Cove+ architecture isn't a huge jump over Redwood, made on the new Intel 3 process node, and should drop sometime in 2024.

MLID says that the new Xeon "Granite Rapids" and its new Redwood+ architecture should have a "bigger uplift" over Redwood Cove than Raptor Cove was over Golden Cove. Intel's new Redwood+ is a bigger architectural shift than Raptor Lake is bringing over Alder Lake, adds MLID.

Anthony Garreffa | Sep 27, 2022 8:43 PM CDT

Intel kicked off its Innovation event today, unveiling everything we need to know about the 13th Gen Core "Rocket Lake" CPUs and the company's first-ever 6.0GHz CPU teased.

Intel Core i9-13900KS Special Edition CPU: launches in 2023 at 6.0GHz+ 05

The company teased a new 13th Gen Core "Raptor Lake" CPU with 6.0GHz out of the box, in limited volumes early next year. We should expect Intel to call it the Core i9-13900KS processor in Special Edition form, with KS-series processors being pre-binned we should expect the best power efficiency and of course: stability at ridiculous high CPU clocks.

Intel didn't detail whether the 6.0GHz clocks will be across all of the cores or just a particular number of them, but if it's anything like the Core i9-12900KS "Alder Lake" CPU which had a 5.5GHz all-core, the Core i9-13900KS with 6.0GHz all-core would be very, very nice to see.

AMD's new Ryzen 9 7950X "Zen 4" processor has been pushed to new limits just days before its official retail launch, with the new Zen 4 flagship CPU being pumped up to an incredible 7.2GHz on a single-core, and 6.5GHz all-core OC.

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X hits 7.2GHz on single core, 6.5GHz all-core on LN2 01

We know to use a high-end 360mm AIO cooler with AMD's new flagship Ryzen 9 7950X processor if you want to hit 5.7GHz but if you wanted to reach 5.8GHz and above on the Ryzen 9 7950X then you need to use some serious cooling. TUM_APISAK posted some CPU-Z validation screenshots of the new Ryzen 9 7950X hitting 7.2GHz and 6.GHz, check them out below.

A single Zen 4 core was overclocked to 7247MHz (7.2GHz) with 1.506V and chilled with LN2 cooling, while 6.5GHz all-core was reached with a little less voltage -- 1.465V -- but the same LN2 cooling. Not too shabby at all... 16 cores and 32 threads of next-gen Zen 4 CPU power at 6.5GHz, but not everyone has LN2 cooling.
