Intel Sapphire Rapids ‘4th Gen Xeon’ CPU Delidded By Der8auer,…

An Intel Sapphire Rapids ‘4th Gen’ Xeon CPU sample has been delidded by Der8auer, the renowned German overclocker and enthusiast.

Intel’s Substantial Sapphire Rapids-SP ‘4th Gen’ Xeon CPU Offer Delidded, Unveils 56 Main Excessive Main Count Die

This just isn’t the 1st time we are hunting at a delidded Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP Xeon CPU. In point, there have been multiple leaks in the earlier and we even acquired to see some high-res chip pictures straight out of Intel’s Arizona fabs where the upcoming-gen server chips are staying manufactured.

There are several of these chip samples circulating in the online marketplaces (eBay in this case) and this specific variant was the ‘Xeon vPRO XCC QWP3‘. We are not able to convey to what the specific requirements are for this chip but under the hood, it will come with an Intense Core Rely (XCC) die that attributes 4 tiles, each tile with 14 cores and a complete of 56 cores on the major-finish SKU.

Intriguing items that you will see for the duration of the delidding process for the Intel Sapphire Rapids Xeon CPU, as revealed in the video clip, is that the chip capabilities a soldered structure and utilizes higher-finish liquid-metallic TIM with gold plated IHS. The caps on the interposer are also silicone secured to be certain the finest thermal efficiency achievable for the Xeon CPUs. Der8auer used his very own kit for delidding and it was a very simple pop the lid procedure to expose the die (or dies in this case) under the large IHS.

With all four chiplets uncovered, we can see that beneath them is a 4×4 (one IMC tile) core configuration which suggests every die is made up of up to 15 cores. It should be sixteen main but one of the main place is taken up by the IMC that’s why we are only still left with fifteen of the overall cores out of which 1 will be disabled for better yields. This means that each and every die will in actuality characteristic 14 cores for a whole of fifty six cores for every CPU.

This is Every thing We Know About The 4th Gen Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP Xeon Relatives

In accordance to Intel, the Sapphire Rapids-SP will appear in two deal variants, a standard, and an HBM configuration. The normal variant will characteristic a chiplet style and design composed of 4 XCC dies that will function a die dimensions of all-around 400mm2. This is the die size for a singular XCC die and there will be four in full on the top Sapphire Rapids-SP Xeon chip. Each die will be interconnected by using EMIB which has a pitch measurement of 55u and a core pitch of 100u.

The conventional Sapphire Rapids-SP Xeon chip will characteristic 10 EMIB interconnects and the overall package deal will evaluate at a mighty 4446mm2. Going above to the HBM variant, we are obtaining an elevated range of interconnects which sit at 14 and are required to interconnect the HBM2E memory to the cores.

The four HBM2E memory packages will aspect 8-Hi stacks so Intel is likely for at least 16 GB of HBM2E memory for each stack for a total of sixty four GB across the Sapphire Rapids-SP deal. Talking about the deal, the HBM variant will evaluate at an crazy 5700mm2 or 28% bigger than the normal variant. In contrast to the recently leaked EPYC Genoa numbers, the HBM2E bundle for Sapphire Rapids-SP would close up five% larger sized when the conventional package will be 22% more compact.

  • Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP Xeon (Standard Offer) – 4446mm2
  • Intel Sapphire Rapids-SP Xeon (HBM2E Deal) – 5700mm2
  • AMD EPYC Genoa (12 CCD Package) – 5428mm2

Intel also states that the EMIB hyperlink offers twice the bandwidth density improvement and 4 occasions far better electrical power performance compared to normal package models. Apparently, Intel calls the latest Xeon lineup Logically monolithic which means that they are referring to the interconnect that’ll offer you the very same operation as a solitary-die would but technically, there are 4 chiplets that will be interconnected together. You can go through the complete aspects pertaining to the typical 56 main & 112 thread Sapphire Rapids-SP Xeon CPUs listed here.
