On February 15th, Intel announced the upcoming launch of two new families of Xeon processors: the W-2400 and W-3400 series. Both bring new and potentially exciting features to Intel’s workstation processor lineup:
- Xeon W-3400 is a replacement for the existing W-3300 line, but with substantially higher core counts and improved performance. They will feature eight-channel memory controllers, as previous generations have, with up to 56 cores (112 threads with Hyperthreading).
- Xeon W-2400 represents Intel’s re-introduction of a high-end desktop (HEDT) processor, which has been absent since their Core X line faded from the spotlight a few years ago. These will be more affordable than the W-3400 series and will be equipped with quad-channel memory controllers.
One major improvement with this generation is the move from DDR4 to DDR5, while still maintaining the use of ECC Registered memory modules. This change comes with a new socket, meaning new chipsets and motherboards will be required – so these will not be usable as drop-in upgrades to existing workstations.
