Intel To Host 'Intel Unleashed' Webcast Featuring CEO, Pat Gelsinger, on 23rd March

Intel’s CEO, Pat Gelsinger, has announced that his company will be hosting its ‘Intel Unleashed’ webcast on 23rd March. Pat states that exciting things will happen during the webcast & we may already know a thing or two that should be making an appearance during the live event.

Intel CEO Announces ‘Intel Unleashed’ Live Webcast For 23rd March, Exciting Things To Happen Including 3rd Gen Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPU Launch

As tweeted out by Intel’s CEO, the company will host its ‘Intel Unleashed’ event next week. The teaser image shows the picture of a silicon wafer but on a closer inspection & with a higher-quality image posted at Intel’s newsroom, we can confirm that the webcast will primarily focus on the 3rd Gen Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPUs. Following is the tweet and the official PR from Intel:

Intel’s Mystery Clue Cracked: Xe HPG Scavenger Hunt Going Live On 26th March 2021

Join CEO Pat Gelsinger for a business update and webcast address on the new era of innovation and technology leadership.

When: 2-3 p.m. PDT, Tuesday, March 23

Where: Watch live on the Intel Newsroom at http://newsroom.intel.com.

The silicon wafer is composed of 28 core Ice Lake-SP Xeon dies. We know that Intel would offer up to 40 core processors within its 3rd Gen Xeon family this time around to tackle AMD. The Xeon lineup based on the Ice Lake-SP design will be using the 10nm+ process node which shouldn’t be mistaken with the 10nm SuperFin process which only lands on Sapphire Rapids Xeons later this year. The Ice Lake-SP processors will be featuring the Sunny Cove core architecture which was introduced back in 2019 and coming to servers in 2021. It should be noted that Intel has a more modern Willow Cove architecture powering its consumer & commercial processors right now so we aren’t getting that on the server-side.

Intel’s Xeon Ice Lake-SP lineup is split between Platinum, Gold, and Silver SKUs. The top SKU is said to be the Xeon Platinum 8380 which would feature 40 cores, a base clock of 2.30 GHz, and a 270W TDP. Compared to AMD’s flagship, we are looking at lower cores and a lower base clock however, Intel’s architecture and process nodes are tuned for higher clock speeds so that might mark a small win for the blue team.

The company is also placing bets on its AVX-512 instruction set and has shown CPU benchmarks where it handily beats AMD’s existing Rome CPUs but only when running applications that fully leverage AVX-512 instructions. Standard applications would not see the same benefit on Intel CPUs.

The lineup starts with 8 cores and goes all the way up to 40 cores. The lineup is quite confusing if compared to the AMD EPYC parts so you can see the table below to get a sense of what Intel will be offering in its 3rd Gen Xeon Ice Lake-SP stack:

Other than the Xeon announcement, we can also expect Intel to provide us with better information regarding its next-generation Xeon roadmap, an update on external/internal fabs utilization, and a couple of teases on other announcements such as the Xe-HPG parts which have been confirmed for unveiling on 26th March.
