The Xeon W5-3433 with 16 cores appears on the website of SiSoftware, belonging to the Intel Fishhawk Falls series. It has been a while since Intel updated its high-end desktop platform (HEDT).
Intel Fishhawk Falls: Xeon W5-3433 CPU is detected with 16 cores
Recently, the Xeon W5-3433 processor has been listed, which is spotted at Sisoftware Sandra with a 16-core, 32-thread count. This information comes from a leak by @momomo_us, who found the processor in the tool’s database.
The Xeon W5-3433 processor with 16 cores and 32 threads would be the successor to Ice Lake-X, which has its namesake Xeon W-3335. Both have the same number of cores and threads.
This processor would feature about 45 MB of L3 cache and 32 MB of L2 cache. The tool is detecting this part with a low clock speed of 1.99 GHz, so we deduce that this is an engineering sample.
Intel has a series of HEDT processors that it usually calls Core-X, but it is not confirmed if Intel will continue to name them this way or if they will be called Xeon W directly.
A roadmap indicated that Sapphire Rapids HEDT with the W790 chipset would be released in the second quarter of this year. However, that date has not been met and the whole launch would have been delayed. Now that we know that Sapphire Rapids-SP for data centers is going to launch in Q3, we have to think that the HEDT series (workstations) will also launch next year.
