Press Release

Intel announces today its next-generation of Intel Xeon Scalable processor family that will be offered with up to 56 cores to be made available in the first half of 2020. The next-generation Xeon Scalable processors codenamed “Cooper Lake” will have built-in AI training acceleration in a standard. The breakthrough platform performance delivered within the high-core-count Cooper Lake processors will leverage the capabilities built into the Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 series, which today is gaining momentum among the world’s most demanding HPC customers, including HLRN, Advania, 4Paradigm, and others.

“The Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 series that we introduced as part of our 2nd Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor family generated a lot of excitement among our customers who are deploying the technology to run their high-performance computing (HPC), advanced analytics, artificial intelligence and high-density infrastructure. Extended 56-core processor offerings into our mainline Intel Xeon Scalable platforms enables us to serve a much broader range of customers who hunger for more processor performance and memory bandwidth.”
–Lisa Spelman, vice president and general manager of Data Center Marketing, Intel Corporation

Intel Cooper Lake Xeon Scalable Processors

The next-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors will deliver twice the processor core count of up to 56 cores compared to the current generation along with support for higher memory bandwidth, higher AI interference and higher training performance compared to the Intel Xeon Scalable 8200 processors. The 56-core Cooper Lake processor is also expected to have a lower power envelope compared to the current Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors. Cooper Lake will be the first x86 processor to deliver built-in high-performance AI training acceleration capabilities through new bfloat16 support added to Intel Deep Learning Boost. Cooper Lake will have platform compatibility with the upcoming 10nm Ice Lake processor.

The Next-generation “Cooper Lake” Intel Xeon Scalable processors will build off Intel’s uninterrupted server processor track record by delivering leadership performance for customers’ real-world workloads and business application needs. At the moment, Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors are available for purchase today as part of pre-configured systems from select OEMs.
