On Jan. 10, 2023, Intel officially launched its 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors (code-named Sapphire Rapids) for data center customers around the globe. Fueled by years of hard work and focus, Intel delivered its highest quality Xeon product ever, and is already seeing a rapid ramp and the greatest-ever level of customer and partner support.
Launch day brought to market a new Intel leadership product bolstered by significant advancements in performance with industry-leading accelerators, increased core count and improved performance per watt. With a strong new product in the market, customer adoption of these new technologies has been swift. In just eight weeks since launch, Intel has executed the most ever design wins for any Xeon family and the most ever platforms available and shipping in this short time-to-market window.
All major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and original design manufacturers (ODMs) are shipping systems today and the top 10 cloud service providers (CSPs) are deploying cloud instances now and throughout 2023. Underpinning and supporting all this customer success is a healthy supply of Xeon product for all of 2023 to meet customer demand across a broad range of critical use cases and real-world workloads.
“Launching 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors was the first of many moments you’ll see from Intel this year that will showcase our roadmap confidence and define our market readiness,” said Lisa Spelman, corporate vice president and general manager of Intel Xeon Products. “We’re showing the industry that we are executing with consistency and delivering on our commitments to customers.”
