Intel, it seems, will be able to finally catch up or even surpass AMD in the number of cores in processors in the server segment in the near future. Even though the latter
Intel will release a generation of Xeon processors called Sierra Forest in the future, according to the source. They will receive the LGA 7529 version, that is, the number of contacts will increase significantly.
And one of the reasons will be the increased number of cores. More precisely, these CPUs are credited with more than 128 cores in top models! True, these cores will be energy efficient. According to the source, these will be improved small cores of Alder Lake processors, but it is unclear whether this is exactly the same Gracemont architecture with some changes, or in general the same level of cores, but on a new architecture. In any case, all 128 or more cores will be relatively small.
Based on the available data, AMD will have a similar approach. The 96-core Genoa processors are coming first, followed by the 128-core Bergamo processors, and both lines will rely on Zen 4C cores – specially adapted for cloud computing and simplified by the relatively large Zen 4 cores.
At the same time, both AMD Bergamo and Intel Sierra Forest are expected in 2023. It is in this year that Intel may be able to bypass AMD in the number of cores in server processors.
