Intel: Could Launch Its Eagle Stream Platform for Data Centers in 2021
It is leaked by ASPEED that Intel in 2021 could launch its new Eagle Stream platform developed specifically for Data Centers.
It seems that Intel has given up this year for lost and is focusing its efforts already in 2020 and onwards. It has just been leaked that the ASPEED company plans to release the AST2600s within a maximum period of two years. This platform would be based on Intel Eagle Stream, which would also arrive in early 2021 and will be the replacement for Ice Lake-SP. The new architecture will arrive in mid-2020 due to problems that have delayed it.
According to the Roadmap leaked by the company itself on Twitter, you can see Intel's Eagle Stream platform. Obviously, absolutely nothing has been leaked and everything is based on non-specific information. Although the slide puts it in early 2021.
Intel Eagle Stream could arrive in early 2021
Eagle Stream is a specially created platform for data centers that will replace Whitley next year. Whitley will be based in Cooper Lake-SP and is expected in the first half of 2020. During the second half of 2020, Whitley will arrive with Ice Lake-SP.
The Eagle Stream platform will be a platform that will allow the assembly of two processors. The first would be a Sapphire Rapids @ 10nm ++ and the second a Granite Rapids @ 7nm. Although there is no official confirmation of any of this, they could arrive between 2021 and 2022. In addition, these processors will support DDR5, PCIe Gen 5 and CXL.
Although Ice Lake-SP has been delayed to the second half of 2020, the rest of the launches have barely moved. Intel also expects to increase its data center cadence by offering new platforms every 4 to 5 quarters of a year, which is a year and a half more or less. These plans will be launched with the launch of Ice Lake-SP.
We will see if this time Intel manages to comply with its own Roadmap. The company in recent years has had serious problems to achieve it, especially with 10nm.
