Intel has officially disclosed that the world-record performance of the Xeon Scalable Processors will now be made available for the next-gen expert workstations. This would enable photorealistic design, modeling, artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, and virtual-reality (VR) content creation.
Professional workstations are a key component to the creation of the immersive 3D VR media which is trending today. However, rendering such content is a time-consuming process demanding the highest performance workstations.
Companies like Technicolor are using Intel Xeon Scalable processors so as to push the boundaries of immersive media by accelerating the data processing and bringing the ultimate VR creation experience to life. Beyond VR, many organizations are taking advantage of workstations to accelerate creation and innovation.
Workstations give professionals a powerful productivity tool in the form of faster time to market with computer aided design tools and creating ultra-high definition (HD) and 3D content, improving medical care and driving faster financial trades and AI analytics.

Intel Xeon Scalable processors deliver breakthrough dual-socket performance offering up to 56 crores, up to 112 threads and an Intel Turbo Boost Technology frequency up to 4.2 GHz. The expert workstations are going to experience up to a 2.71x boost in performance as compared to a 4-year-old system and up to 1.65 times higher performance as compared to the previous generation.
Intel has also unveiled the Intel Xeon W processors which deliver optimized performance for traditional workstation professionals by combining mainstream performance, enhanced memory capabilities, and hardware-enhanced security and reliability.
The Xeon W processors feature up to 18 cores and up to 36 threads with an Intel Turbo boost Technology frequency up to 4.5 GHz. The mainstream workstations will experience up to a 1.87x boost in the performance as compared to the former versions.
