Today Intel releasted the Intel® Xeon® W-3175X processor. This unlocked 28-core workstation powerhouse is built for select, highly-threaded and computing-intensive applications such as architectural and industrial design and professional content creation.

Built for handling heavily threaded applications and tasks, the Intel Xeon W-3175X processor delivers uncompromising single- and all-core world-class performance for the most advanced professional creators and their demanding workloads.

Why It’s Different?

With the most cores and threads, CPU PCIe lanes, and memory capacity of any Intel desktop processor, the Intel Xeon W-3175X processor has the features that matter for massive mega-tasking projects such as film editing and 3D rendering. Other key features and capabilities:

  • Intel® Mesh Architecture, which delivers low latency and high data bandwidth between CPU cores, cache, memory and I/O while increasing the number of cores per processor
    – a critical need for the demanding, highly-threaded workloads of creators and experts.
  • Intel® Extreme Tuning Utility, a precision toolset that helps experienced overclockers optimise their experience with unlocked processors.
  • Intel® Extreme Memory Profile, which simplifies the overclocking experience by removing the guesswork of memory overclocking.
  • Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) ratio offset and memory controller trim voltage control that allow for optimisation of overclocking frequencies regardless of SSE or AVX workloads and allow maximisation of memory overclocking.
  • Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 that delivers frequencies up to 4.3 GHz.
  • Up to 68 platform PCIe lanes, 38.5 MB Intel Smart Cache, 6-channel DDR4 memory support with up to 512 GB at 2666 MHz, and ECC and standard RAS support power peripherals and high-speed tools.
  • Intel® C621 chipset-based systems designed to support the Intel Xeon W-3175X processor allow professional content creators to achieve a new level of performance.
  • Asetek 690LX-PN all-in-one liquid cooler, a custom created solution sold separately by Asetek, helps ensure the processor runs smoothly at both stock settings and while overclocking.
  • With the Intel Xeon W-3175 processor, build the “Infiltrator Demo” in Unreal Engine up to 1.52x faster compared with the Intel® Core™ i9-9980XE processor.
