New Intel Xeon W and X-Series Processors Get Competitive Pricing
October 9, 2019
Latest Workstation and High-End Desktop
Platforms Purpose-Built for Professional
Content Creators and Desktop Enthusiasts
Intel is the only company that delivers a
full portfolio of products precision-tuned
to handle the sustained compute-intensive
workloads used by professional creators and
enthusiasts every day. The new Xeon W-2200
and X-series processors take this to the
next level, as the first high-end desktop PC
and mainstream workstations to feature AI
acceleration with the integration of Intel
Deep Learning Boost. This offers an AI
inference boost of 2.2 times1 more compared
with the prior generation. Additionally,
this new lineup features Intel® Turbo Boost
Max Technology 3.0, which has been further
enhanced to help software, such as for
simulation and modeling, run as fast as
possible by identifying and prioritizing the
fastest available cores.
The Ultimate Professional Creator Platform
For professional creators, the Intel Xeon
W-2200 platform is the ultimate option.
These eight new processors (W-2295, W-2275,
W-2265, W-2255, W-2245, W-2235, W-2225 and
W-2223) deliver outstanding performance and
expanded platform capabilities for data
science, visual effects, 3D rendering,
complex 3D CAD, AI development and edge
deployments. They can be used in
configurable form-factors – from small
desktop to towers – as well as include
built-in platform security features and
reliability, such as ECC support and Intel
vPro™, which creative professionals demand.
For example, the 3D architectural rendering
process on Autodesk Revit with V-Ray
accelerates up to 10 percent faster2
compared with the previous generation and up
to 2 times faster compared with a 3-year-old
Bridging the Enthusiast and the Creator
For freelancers, prosumers and desktop enthusiasts who may not need commercial-grade features, Intel Core X-series processors provide the performance with the added flexibility of overclocking4 capabilities. These four new processors (i9-10980XE, i9-10940X, i9-10920X and i9-10900X) are especially suited for advanced workflows that vary in need for photo/video editing, game development and 3D animation. Additionally, they deliver enthusiast-ready enhanced features, like Intel Performance Maximizer that makes it easy to dynamically and reliably custom-tune the unlocked processors based on the X-series’ individual performance DNA.
New X-series prices range from $590 to $979. With the creator segment’s need for more computing-intensive and specific workloads, the new pricing enables X-series to be more accessible to the creators looking for even more compute-intensive workloads than Intel’s mainstream desktop processors.
Additional Pricing Refinements
In addition to Intel Xeon W and X-series, Intel is also introducing new pricing to its Intel Core S-series processors without integrated graphics. Intel is committing to these processors in its long-term roadmap, which has given Intel the opportunity to reset where it fits in the portfolio and pricing. The new prices are effective starting today, with the 9th Gen Intel Core desktop processors currently in market.
