Intel Sends Exclusive Invites For Architecture Day, Just Don't Expect Gaming GPUs

intel architecture day

Intel has sent out press invites for its "Intel Architectural Day", which will take place on Tuesday, December 11th. The chip company will hold two primary sessions during the day: one which will pertain to “Intel Architecture Strategy” and a second that will delve into "Advanced Client and Data Centric Architectures and Technologies".

The invite goes on to state, “Join us as we take a look at how Intel's innovation will bring breakthroughs in new products and experiences.”

It should come as no surprise that most of us would be quick to assume that Intel will discuss its upcoming dedicated graphics cards at the event. In fact, when news of the conference began making the rounds this morning, all of the headlines pointed to Intel’s new GPU as being a major topic of discussion. However, an Intel representative told HotHardware that these reports are “inaccurate”.

Intel CPU Wafer

While that may be disappointing news to hear for those that want plenty of early details on a strong competitor to AMD and NVIDIA in the graphics market, we're almost certain to hear about Intel's upcoming 14nm++ Cascade Lake-AP Xeon server processors. Intel is committed to delivering Cascade Lake-SP processors during the first half of 2019, and they will be competing directly against AMD's 7nm Zen 2-based EPYC processors.

Cascade Lake-AP processors will be available with up to 48 physical cores (96 threads), and will support 12-channel DDR4 memory. Late last week, we received some alleged early benchmarks of two 2P systems: one with two 48-core Cascade Lake-AP Xeon processors, and one with two 64-core Zen 2 EPYC processors. Both machines put down some incredible Cinebench R15 scores, and were within a few hundred points of each other.

In addition to further Cascade Lake-AP details, we're also likely to receive an update on Intel's 10nm chip production. Intel's first 10nm processors (consumer market) are expected to ship during the latter half of 2019, while 10nm parts for the server market aren't expected to arrive until 2020.

Of course, this is just speculation on our part, and Intel hasn't confirmed any of this (other than to say that the dedicated GPU stories were wishful thinking). We'll be attending Intel's event next month and will be providing coverage as permitted.
