AnandTech reports Intel has largely cancelled the rollout of its 14nm Cooper Lake server processors. General availability will no longer happen, the chip giant will limit availability to priority scale-out customers who have already designed quad-socket and eight-socket platforms around Cooper Lake. This means the company will rely more on the 10nm "Ice Lake" Xeon, which has already faced multi-quarter delays.
There have repeated reports about Intel’s Ice Lake Xeon delays, some as recent as December 2019, saying that the platform has been delayed more and more, putting into doubt as to whether Intel can get general availability for Ice Lake Xeon inside 2020. There are also discussions about core counts, frequencies, power, and whether Intel will have to move to a dual-die strategy for Ice Lake in order to maintain core count pace with other x86 and Arm competition, who are hitting 64 cores per socket.
