Intel 10nm Server U First Exposure: 118% improvement in multithreaded performance

Intel 10nm Ice Lake has been used on a lightweight platform, where the frequency is innately low and can only be 4 cores, and has to be assisted by the simultaneous sacrifice of the 14nm Comet Lake, while the 14nm Comet Lake has to continue to rely on the gamebook and desktop.

According to the roadmap, Intel on the server platform will launch 14nm Cooper Lake, a 10nm Ice Lake, a deep enhancement version of the current second generation of Scalable and Strong Cascade Lake, and the first 10nm contact with Intel servers. Also based on the new Sunny Cove CPU architecture.

Now, for the first time in the GeekBench test database, a 10nm Ice Lake server processor has emerged, and although there is no clear model identification, the identification string of the Family 6 Model 106 can be confirmed.

This is a two-way platform, sum up 12 core 24 threads, each only 6 core 12 threads, although more than the notebook 4 core 8 threads, but compared to now to do 28 core 56 threads is too few, of course, this should be only a low-end model.

Not only that, the main frequency is very low, the benchmark is only 2.2GHz, the acceleration is up to 2.7GHz, but after all, it is still an early engineering sample, the later will certainly improve, of course, from the current 10nm capacity will not be too high.

Even with such weak chicken sizes, the performance of the new U is still amazing, with a single core of 3427 and a multi-core 27926.

What does that mean? WCCFTech found a strong W 3235 score. It belongs to the Cascade Lake family, with a single 12 core 24 thread, much higher frequency, benchmark 3.3GHz, dynamic acceleration 4.4GHz, and turbo Max 3.0 acceleration up to 4.5GHz.

In a very unfair comparison of nearly 40% of this frequency, Ice Lake’s new single core performance is 29% lower than Cascade Lake’s (equivalent to 41% higher than the latter), but the multi-core performance is 118 percent ahead, more than double!

Later as the frequency normalizes, Ice Lake’s performance becomes more limitless. Although it is not yet possible to find a direct comparison with AMD II Dragon, but this is bound to make AMD in the server field just up the momentum of the blow.

The only question is, 14nm Cooper Lake, 10nm Ice Lake will replace the new interface on the server, and since Ice Lake is so strong, who would want Cooper Lake?
