According to Intel’s previous statement, they will launch two generations of server processors for the first time in 2020, and the upgrade interval will be significantly reduced to 4-5 months, with one in the 14nm process of Cooper Lake and the other with the 10nm process’s Ice Lake-SP.
The claim that Cooper Lake-SP and Ice Lake-SP supportPCIe 4.0 has a long history, and now Supermicro’s X12DPi-N motherboard (server platform code Whitley) caption chart confirms the rumors again.
The CPU interface of the motherboard is LGA4189, illustrated with a two-way system.
The siSoftware run points, which are exposed together, show that the platform processor is 14 cores, 28 threads, main frequency 3GHz, 17.5MB secondary cache, 21MB three-level cache, equipped with 256GB DDR4-3200 Micron memory.
Judging from L2, the 14-core processor should be 10nm Ice Lake-SP, while Cooper Lake-SP’s L2 is 1MB. It seems that the enterprise and consumer side, from 14nm to 10nm when the L2 will be upgraded.
