Although the effects of the pandemic and the Ukraine-Russia war continue, processor manufacturers continue to develop new technologies. Especially since the end of 2021, we see that Intel, which has lagged behind AMD in recent years, is on the rise again. Now Intel wants to start fresh by renaming the Xeon series.
Intel Xeon processors will now come under the designation W3, W5, W7 and W9!
Intel invests heavily in R&D not only on the CPU but also on the graphics card. In fact, we’re seeing it start to pay off. Because the two new models, called A770M and A730M, managed to outperform the RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3060 models in performance tests.
Of course, the CPU always seems to be a priority. Especially with the introduction of AMD’s Ryzen 3, 5, 7 and Threadripper models, Intel has been lagging behind in terms of performance and price for a while.
But with the arrival of the 12th generation processors, things changed. Of course, the fact that the chip crisis hit AMD harder also played into this. So much so that some 5th generation Ryzen processors gave lower performance than their predecessors. So it wasn’t too hard for Intel to get through.
Of course, the company is believed to have decided it was time to renew, making this a possibility. So much so that Intel plans to change the name of even the Xeon series. It’s confusing that it won’t be platinum, gold, silver and bronze like it was 5 years ago.
Instead, the W3, W5, W7 and W9 models will come, referred to as the i3, i5, i7 and i9. According to the claim, a benchmark page that appeared this week includes a model called the Xeon W5-3433. It is speculated that this will be the successor of the Xeon W-3300 model.
