Intel announces new Xeon processor that could power future Mac Pro

Apple's long and fruitful partnership with Intel Macs may be coming to an end, but that doesn't mean that a sudden break should happen so quickly, and even so, Ma should still resort to the microchip giant's creations for a while until she makes a transition to her own processors ( if it is to happen, it should be noted).

With that in mind, take a look at this new line of high performance desktop processors introduced today by Intel at because, among them, one can find the way of the future. Mac pro what we all dream about.

O Intel Xeon W-3175X a processor of no less than 28 cores (!) and 56 threads, with 3.1GHz base speed and Turbo boost of 4.3GHz. Its factory unlocked multiplier and chip supports up to 512GB of RAM with a DDR4 memory controller supporting up to 6 channels. The beast also has 68 PCI lines (44 of them on the CPU), in line with the maximum focus Intel wants to give content creators.

Intel has not announced the price of its new creation, but claims that it will be available in December ie in a timing It is appropriate for Apple to make the final adjustments to the supposed new Mac Pro so much promised.

In addition to the new Xeon line chip, the manufacturer also announced the ninth generation of new Core line processors one of them, the Core i9-9900K, described as the best gaming CPU ever produced. However, these new chips are unlikely to find their way into Macs because of their low thermal efficiency; Apple tends to prioritize components on its computers that are not as hot as the fifth-generation processors currently used in iMacs.

Full details of the new processors released can be found in this Intel release.
