Intel to combat Zen with Xeon Gold and Xeon Platinum in media workstation market

Word is going around that the performance of AMD's Zen processor shocked Intel and that the chip giant decided to introduce a new line of Xeon processors for the prosumer market. This will reportedly consist of Skylake server parts with the LGA3647 socket, these will be marketed as Xeon Gold and Xeon Platinum.

TechPowerUp writes these chips will target media workstations like the Apple Mac Pro. Leaked benchmarks suggest the Xeon Gold 6150, which is based on the Skylake-EP chip, has 18 cores, 36 threads, 2.7GHz base clock, and a 3.7GHz Boost.
The Xeon Gold 6150 features 18 CPU cores, with HyperThreading enabling 36 logical CPUs. Intel increased the L2 cache amount per core to 1 MB, from 256 KB found on other implementations of the "Skylake" architecture. The chip features 25,344 KB (24.75 MB) of shared L3 cache. The core clock speed is 2.70 GHz, with a maximum Turbo Boost frequency of 3.70 GHz. The chip features a quad-channel DDR4 memory interface. Going by its specs, the Xeon Gold 6150 will clearly occupy a higher market segment than the Ryzen R7-1800X, but could lure orders from the likes of Apple, for its next-generation MacPro workstations.
