Comet Lake for Workstations, W480

Apart from Comet Lake vPro being introduced at present, Intel can be lifting the lid on a brand new collection of processors: W-1200. This line of components are analogous to Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake client {hardware}, however with help for twin channel ECC DDR4-2933 reminiscence, as much as 128 GB. These new components won’t work within the Z490 motherboards simply launched onto the market, they may require new W480 motherboards – we all know that many of the motherboard distributors are planning to help the platform. These CPUs are additionally a part of the vPro line when paired with W480, supporting Intel {Hardware} Defend, however in any other case have comparable specs to the patron components.

The highest of the road W-1290P provides the identical specs because the Core i9-10900Ok, albeit with out overclocking. Every of the W-1200 collection have built-in GPUs. A number of the fashions are labelled ‘P’, which on this case means ‘Efficiency’ – these are the 125 W TDP processors.

Intel didn’t present any element in regards to the W480 motherboards, or which companions may have them. Not one of the motherboard producers reached out to announce their W480 merchandise, and thus we count on there to be extra disclosure about this later within the month.

One massive query that arose about these new Xeon W-1200 processors is what occurs to the Xeon E collection. Historically this area, for ‘enterprise’ CPUs that mimic the patron platform, is the goal of the Xeon E processors. Intel launched E-2200, based mostly on Intel Core 9th Gen, within the second half of final yr, however we’ve discovered via emails that Xeon E is now morphing into Xeon W. It’s unclear if the Xeon E model will proceed.

Intel didn’t present pricing for the Xeon W-1200 collection, nor any indication of which fashions will probably be offered at retail, nor when they are going to be obtainable, or by what companions. Any associate that offered E-2200 programs are seemingly to supply W-1200 variants.
