Intel officially confirmed late Tuesday that workstations would feature its Sapphire Rapids processors in a teaser video posted on Twitter. This is the first official confirmation that the company intends to address this market with his upcoming Sapphire Rapids CPUs. However, Intel is still tight-lipped about the specifications of these upcoming products.
“This is ridiculous. It took a room full of computers to do what this does on its own. I have a 30-minute rendering coffee break,” says one woman. video“I was at a conference the other day and the final test run is back very good so I just want to say right away I should probably take a coffee break while I still can .

Based on the latest leaks, Intel plans to market its Sapphire Rapids-WS CPUs under the Xeon W 3400 series name (or at least that’s what it’s unofficially called now). These processors use Intel’s all-new W790 platform and offer up to 56 cores, 8 DDR5 memory channels, and 112 PCIe lanes. Additionally, the CPU is set to be based on high-performance Golden Cove-derived cores with AVX-512 and AMX instructions enabled.
Many Sapphire Rapids-WS SKUs, including the flagship Xeon W9-3495X, come with unlocked multipliers, making them overclockable. The 56-core range-topping model will be the industry’s first overclockable CPU for powerful workstations released a few years later. Intel and AMD essentially abandoned this market and focused on traditional workstations that were never overclocked.
Rumor has it that Intel will release Sapphire Rapids-WS processors next spring after first shipping its Xeon scalable ‘Sapphire Rapids’ products for servers. So far, Intel has not confirmed a timeframe for his workstation-grade Xeon W 3400 series products, but at least he clearly states that Sapphire Rapids will be coming to workstations.
