Intel’s 6th Generation Xeon Scalable ‘Granite Rapids’ Poses for the Camera

Renowned hardware leaker YuuKi_AnS has published the first photos of Intel’s 6th Generation Xeon Scalable ‘Granite Rapids-AP’ processor, expected to hit the market in 2024 or 2025. The CPU uses Intel’s LGA7529 packaging and will share a platform with the company’s codenamed Sierra Forest processor.

Engineering samples of Intel’s Xeon Scalable ‘Granite Rapids’ look different than contemporary Xeon Scalable CPUs, which is not particularly surprising as these processors are considerably larger than existing ones. Meanwhile, the fact that these CPUs are already in the wild is not particularly surprising, as the product is less than two years away, so server makers are already testing it.
