Early Intel Ice Lake-SP Processor Information

Introduction

Intel’s Ice Lake-SP launch event is happening today at 8AM Pacific time. It is called “How Wonderful Gets Done“, which is kind of a silly name. This post will cover some early Intel Ice Lake-SP Processor Information that has been leaking out ahead of the event.

I am going to update this as the day goes on.

Intel has fifty-seven separate SKUs in this family. Fifteen are actually the older 14nm Cooper Lake-SP processors for four-socket and eight-socket servers. They have “H” and “HL” suffixes. There are forty-two 10nm Ice Lake SKUs.
