During their “Fall Desktop Launch Event”, Intel unvealed their XEON W-3175X processor, an unlocked 28-core processor which offers support for 6-channel DDR4 memory and clock speeds of up to 4.3GHz out of the box. 

Unlike other Xeon processors, Intel plans to make their W-3175X processor with support for overclocking, while also offering support ECC memory and other Xeon-grade features. Intel has confirmed that this CPU offers a base clock speed of 3.1GHz and a dual-core boost clock speed of 4.3GHz. The TDP of this processor is 255W.

To house these processors, Intel’s 28-core Xeon requires motherboards that are both server-grade and overclocking-ready. On this front, Intel has partnered with both ASUS and Gigabyte to offer mainboards that are capable of running these new processors at higher clock speeds to deliver industry-leading performance.

Intel plans to release their new Xeon W-3175X this December alongside supported motherboards from ASUS and Gigabyte. At this time Intel has not revealed any pricing numbers, but the Xeon name alone should say a lot about the cost of the product.
