New Geekbench scores have revealed the existence of Intel’s upcoming 32-core Skylake-EP CPU, which is said to be clocked at 2.3GHz and offer support for 6-channel memory. 
 
Previous announcements from Intel have suggested that Intel’s Skylake-EP/Purley platform would max out at 28 cores and 56 threads, though rumours of a 32-core variant have been circulating for some time. 
 
It is also rumoured that Intel’s new Purley platform will support AXV 512 instructions, and a new 100G Omni-Path interconnects, enabling servers with up to 8 CPU sockets.
