The new Xeon W-3175X workstation-oriented processor sports no less than 28 cores and 56 threads, runs at 3.1 GHz (4.3 GHz turbo boost), has a TDP of 255 W, and supports up to 512 GB of hexa-channel DDR4 ECC memory. Announced back in October, now it is finally available for purchase at a price of US$2,999.

Advertised by Intel as "a 28-core workstation powerhouse built for select, highly-threaded and computing-intensive applications such as architectural and industrial design and professional content creation," the Xeon W-3175X processor is now finally available for purchase. Announced back on October 8, 2018, the new chip comes with the most cores, threads, CPU PCIe lanes, and memory capacity of any Intel desktop processor.

Without further ado, here are the highlights of the Intel Xeon W-3175X processor:

  • 3.1 GHz base frequency and up to 4.3 GHz thanks to Turbo Boost 2.0
  • 28 cores and 56 threads
  • 6-channel, up to 512 GB 2,666 MHz ECC DDR4 support
  • up to 68 platform PCIe lanes
  • 255 W TDP
  • 38.5 MB Intel Smart Cache
  • Intel Extreme Tuning Utility and Extreme Memory Profile support
  • Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 support
  • Asetek 690LX-PN all-in-one liquid cooler (sold separately for US$399) 

According to Intel, the W-3175X is up to 1.52 times faster than the Core i9-9980XE when tested using the high-end "Infiltrator Demo" in Unreal Engine 4.

Priced at US$2,999 a piece (tray version), the Intel Xeon W-3175X is available from system integrators that develop purpose-built desktop workstations.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
