I don't talk a lot about server hardware as DVHARDWARE is primarily focused on the consumer side of things, but every once in a while there's something worth covering. Yesterday, Intel announced it's now manufacturing Xeon "Ice Lake" server processors on its 10nm node. The chip giant says volume ramp will take place this quarter. The first 10nm desktop processors, the Alder Lake-S, is expected in the second half of this year.
Today at CES, Intel highlighted the company's focus on execution of core products and showcased the company's broader portfolio, in addition to sharing more on what's coming in the year ahead.

As part of its disclosures, Intel announced the recent production of its 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors (code-named "Ice Lake") with volume ramp taking place during the first quarter of 2021. Intel's 10nm Xeon Scalable processors feature architectural and platform innovations that boost performance, security and operational efficiency within data centers.

"Today marks a significant milestone for Intel as we continue to accelerate the delivery of our 10nm products and maintain an intense focus on delivering a predictable cadence of leadership products for our customers," said Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Platforms Group at Intel. "Our 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable platform represents a strategic part of our data center strategy and one that we've created alongside some of our biggest customers to enable the data center of tomorrow."

The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors help deliver the computing power customers need to thrive in this new, complex world thanks to significant increases in core count, performance, integrated artificial intelligence (AI) and security.

The latest Intel Xeon Scalable processors will enable cloud, enterprise and networking customers to deploy innovative systems and services, such as next-generation cloud services, that strengthen data privacy, AI video analytics, and microservices at the edge. The new Intel Xeon Scalable processors will be formally announced in the coming months.
