Designed for workstation professionals, the Intel Xeon W-3300 series is the company’s latest addition to its CPU portfolio. This new series includes five SKUs, featuring up to 57MB of cache, 38 cores and 76 threads, clock speeds as high as 4.0GHz, and support for up to 4TB of DDR4-3200 ECC memory.
The Intel Xeon W-3300 processors were built for heavily threaded applications with I/O-intensive workloads, including AI, architecture, engineering, construction and media. The Intel Xeon W-3300 series comes with five new SKUs – W-3323, W-3335, W-3345, W-3365 and W-3375. All of them support Intel Deep Learning Boost, AVX-512 instruction set, RAS technologies, Wi-Fi 6E, and up to 4TB of DDR4-3200 ECC memory. Each of these processors also have 64 PCIe 4.0 lanes.
Compared to its predecessor, the Xeon W-3375 CPU is up to 26% faster in previewing rendering in AutoDesk Maya, up to 20% faster in Adobe Premiere Pro workloads, and up to 45% faster on the Cinebench R23 multi-thread benchmark. Now comparing the Xeon W-3365 processor with the AMD Threadripper Pro 3975WX, the former is 27% faster in product development, up to 47% faster in energy, oil, and gas workloads, and up to 10% faster in general workloads.
Intel hasn’t specified the release date, but it has unveiled pricing. The W-3323 goes for $949, the W-3335 for $1,299, the W-3345 for $2,499, the W-3365 for $3,499, and the W-3375 for $4,499.
