Recently, Intel has lagged behind and has been criticized, both in terms of production processes and PCIe 4. Intel, which lags behind its rival, is about to take an important step in this regard.
LGA4677 is coming
According to the information obtained from different presentations, the company rolled out its sleeves to present PCIe 5 and DDR5 technologies to the world of technology. By 2021, we will be able to see these two technologies, at least on the server side.
The new socket, which is expected to be LGA4677 , bears the code name Sapphire Rapids . PCIe 5 and 8-channel DDR5 technology with a socket that allows servers to transfer data much faster and more efficient. The socket will be quite large with 4677 pins.
In addition, the server-side Willow Cove architecture is specified to be transitioned. Intel's second-generation 10nm architecture will be included in the Sunny Cove architecture servers will use the more powerful Willow Cove architecture.
Intel wants to use PCIe 5 and DDR5 technologies in servers in the first place because of high costs. Already these two technologies to the end user for 2020-2021 periods were predicted. In this respect, it is possible to say that Intel caught the trend early.
