Intel has announced at its keynote at the Computex show that it will release a processor with 28 cores. The cores run at a clock frequency of 5GHz and the CPU will be released before the end of the year.
Intel demonstrated the 28-core processor at its keynote during the Computex. The chip giant turned Cinebench, all 28 cores at 5GHz kept ticking, shows among other AnandTech show. That resulted in a Cinebench score of 7334 points. In comparison, the fastest Skylake X processor on the X299 platform achieves a score of 3342 points with 18 cores.
It is striking that Intel has managed to run all 28 cores at 5GHz. Such a clock frequency is not remarkable for Intel processors, but often thanks to the turbo functionality only one or two cores and not 28 is achieved. Or the CPU can keep that clock speed for a long time, is not clear, because thanks to the 28 cores with 56 threads the benchmark lasted only a few seconds.
The as yet unnamed 28-core processor is not Intel’s first CPU with so many cores. Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 has the same number of cores but has a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.8GHz. The CPU has a tdp of 205 watts and is intended for use in servers, given its 3647-foot socket. Which socket the new 28-core CPU will appear on, Intel has not disclosed, just like the price. In the fourth quarter, the manufacturer will sell the processor.
