Intel Sapphire Rapids server processors will not come out as planned due to \"side problems\"

Intel Sapphire Rapids server processors will not come out as planned due to \

The transition to mass production of 4th generation Xeon Scalable server processors (Sapphire Rapids) will occur later than expected.
This was announced at the BofA Securities Global Technology Conference by Sandra Rivera, head of the server division.
In fact, it is the second postponement of the release of these chips.
Previously, the company had intended to release the processors in the first quarter of this year.Image source: IntelInternet has previously reported that during the first quarter, it shipped samples of 4th generation Intel Xeon Scalable codename Sapphire Rapids to some customers.
The chips are currently being tested by the company's partners.
According to Rivera, Intel needs more time to develop new platforms for Sapphire Rapids and validate them.
Therefore, mass shipments of the processors, although they will start this year, but later than planned.
\"We need more time to develop and test new platforms, so the mass production release of Sapphire Rapids is expected later than originally expected.
However, we are still seeing strong demand for these chips.
I would also like to add that our Intel 7 processor, on which Sapphire Rapids are built, feels great.
I would like to point out that the same process is used in our Alder Lake consumer chips.
We've ramped up production to 15 million units.
We already mentioned in our Q1 report that it's the fastest ramp-up in consumer processor production in the last ten years.
The process technology is doing very well, and we're projecting a good chip volume picture, but there are some side issues that need to be addressed with our customers,\" commented Sandra Rivera.
It is very important for Intel to make sure that all components of the Sapphire Rapids platform pass the necessary testing, as the successors to the Emerald Rapids codename processors will also be compatible with the platform.
These chips are expected in the second half of 2023 and will also use the Intel 7 (10nm) process technology.
