Intel Unleashes Starfield Powerhouse: No External RAM Required
Intel has introduced its powerhouse processor, the Intel Xeon CPU Max 9480, which stands as one of the company’s fastest and most expensive CPUs to date. This CPU boasts a staggering 56 cores and a unique feature – 64GB of HBM2e RAM, the same type of RAM commonly found in GPUs and AI accelerators.
What sets the Intel Xeon CPU Max 9480 apart is not just its core count but also its memory configuration. Unlike the more typical DDR4 or DDR5 RAM, it incorporates 64GB of HBM2e RAM. This HBM2e RAM is nestled alongside four 14-core CPU tiles, each equipped with a 16GB HBM2e package and two DDR5 channels. This combination provides a powerful foundation for various computing tasks.
