Intel unveils its latest lineup of Intel Xeon W, Core X-series, and enthusiast Core S-series processors

(Tech) The 14-nanometer processors will put new classes of computing performance and AI acceleration into the hands of professional creators and PC enthusiasts, said Frank Soqui, Intel vice president and general manager of desktop, workstation, and channel group.



The Xeon W-2200 and X-series processors will be available in November, along with a new pricing structure that represents an easier step up from Intel Core S-series’ mainstream products.

The new Xeon W-2200 and X-series processors target professional creators and enthusiasts who want high-end desktop PC and mainstream workstations. The chips feature AI acceleration with the integration of Intel Deep Learning Boost, or new instructions that enable 2.2 times faster AI inference processing than the previous generation.

The Intel Xeon W-2200 platform includes eight new processors (W-2295, W-2275, W-2265, W-2255, W-2245, W-2235, W-2225, and W-2223). They are targeted at data science, visual effects, 3D rendering, complex 3D CAD, AI development, and edge deployments.

The chips can be used in configurable form factors and can include built-in platform security features and reliability, such as ECC support and Intel vPro. For example, the 3D architectural rendering process on Autodesk Revit with V-Ray accelerates up to 10% faster compared to the previous generation and up to 2 times faster compared to a three-year-old workstation.

Intel Core X-series processors provide performance with the added flexibility of overclocking for enthusiasts. These four new processors (i9-10980XE, i9-10940X, i9-10920X, and i9-10900X) are especially suited for advanced workflows that vary in need for photo/video editing, game development, and 3D animation.

New X-series prices range from $590 to $979. With the creator segment’s need for more computing-intensive and specified workloads, the new pricing enables X-series offerings to be more accessible to those looking for even more compute-intensive workloads than Intel’s mainstream desktop processors.

In addition to the Intel Xeon W and X-series, Intel is also introducing new pricing to its Intel Core S-series processors without integrated graphics. The company is committing to these processors in its long-term roadmap, which has given it the opportunity to reset its portfolio and pricing.
