While the consumer CPU world is tangled up in AMD’s upcoming ThreadRipper that comes with up to 16C/32T, Intel is wrapping up their next-gen Xeon Platinum line with the flagship Xeon Platinum 8176 processor that rocks 28C/56T of processing power.
Better yet, Intel’s upcoming Xeon Platinum 8176 can be used in dual CPU socket configurations, and with each CPU featuring 28C/56T, you’d be looking at 56C/112T of CPU performance. Intel’s new Xeon Platinum 8176 comes with a stock 2.1GHz CPU clock, while a single core can ramp up to 3.8GHz, the all cores enabled Turbo clock hits 2.8GHz. It’s a beast.
But what good are the specs of this 28C/56T processor without benchmarks? Intel’s new Xeon Platinum 8176 scored 6525 points in Cinebench R15 (which supports more than 16 threads), blasting past the 44C/88T dual-CPU socket Intel Xeon E5-2696 v4 processor… amazing stuff.
