Intel’s server processors got stronger this year with the introduction of the fourth-generation Xeon Scalable chips, code-named Sapphire Rapids. The chips give customers an average of 2.9 times increase in performance and performance-per-watt efficiency compared with the prior generation. They also provide customers with total cost of ownership improvements ranging up to 66 percent, depending on the workload.
The chips have been a staple in the data center market for decades. Intel sells memory and storage capacity for data centers with its Intel Optane portfolio, as well as Ethernet network adapters, controllers and programmable switch products. Intel expects to soon complete a deal it unveiled last year to buy Israeli chipmaker Tower Semiconductor for $5.4 billion.
