Intel Sapphire Rapids-WS Refresh ‘Xeon W3500/W2500’ Series Specifications Leaked

A potential successor to Intel’s Workstation Xeon W3400 and Xeon W2400 series has been in the rumor mill for a while. Initial specifications were leaked by YuuKi_AnS back in November. Today, momomo_us has detailed the entire lineup’s final design plans and specs.

New Workstation CPUs from Intel Inbound: Sapphire Rapids Workstation With Minor Changes

The leap from Sapphire Rapids server to Emerald Rapids was quite substantial on paper. The CPU layout saw a change, alongside the cache count, number of cores, and even the P-Core architecture. The same, sadly, is not the case with the workstation counterpart of Sapphire Rapids-Refresh.

From what we can see, SPR-R WS CPUs pack the same amount of L3 Cache per core as their predecessor. The TDP for some products has increased, though the clock speeds are a mixed bag of both increments and decrements. The memory support is also unaltered, standing at a maximum of DDR5-4800, with an expected 8-channel, 2 DIMMs per channel configuration.

The W-3500 lineup features a total of 7 CPUs, of which the flagship W9-3595X has not been listed. Speaking of the flagship, the 3595X packs 60 cores with a 350W TDP. Apart from that, we have the W9-3575X with 44 cores, a decent improvement over the 3475X which had 36 cores.

Moving over to the W2500 series, the kingpin W7-2595X offers 26 cores in contrast to the w7-2495X’s 24 cores. Matter of fact, all CPUs from the W2500 lineup come with 2 extra cores, which in turn increases the cache count as well. The TDP has also increased, as well as the clock speeds.

The release date of these processors should be extremely close given that the specs are almost finalized. While the differences are nominal at best, SPR-R WS is a drop-in option for the existing Fishhawk Falls platform and will be supported on current W790 series motherboards.
