While Intel's X299 socket may seem workstation focused in its own right, there's a difference between what Intel considers as a consumer-grade platform and what they consider a proper Workstation environment. 

While 18 cores on X299 may be for productivity-focused consumers, Intel's 10th Generation Cascade Lake-X processors lack many of the features that the world of big business demands. This is where Xeon-W steps in to fill the void, bringing forward ECC memory support, extended levels of serviceability, vPro support and better support for Intel VROC RAID. 

Xeon-W is the step between Cascade Lake-X and server-grade Xeons, using a variant of Intel's X299 CPU socket to deliver the levels of reliability that professional workstations demand, and the promise of extended availability and serviceability.

Intel's latest Xeon-W processors utilise the same Cascade Lake architecture as the company's new 10th Generation X299 processors, offering Intel's "Deep Learning Boost" AI acceleration technology. With this, Intel can deliver a 2.2x performance boost over their last-generation of Xeon-W processors in neural network performance, giving AI-focused customers a clear reason to upgrade. 

When compared to a 3-year-old workstation, a workstation with an Intel Xeon E5-1680 v4 processor, Intel states that their new Xeon W-2295 processor can offer a 16.1x performance boost in AI acceleration performance.

In the slide below, Intel shows us that their latest Xeon W processors deliver performance boosts of up to 10-11% over a range of workloads that extend from video editing to 3D design and game development. Intel also shows that when compared to the workstations of 3 years ago that 2X performance gains are not uncommon.

When looking at the specifications sheet below, we can see that Intel's Xeon-W pricing has seen a significant decrease over their last-generation counterparts, just like the pricing of Intel's 10th Generation Cascade Lake-X processors. 

Intel's Xeon W range all offer up to 72 platform PCIe lanes, quad-channel memory support and the ability to use up to 1TB of DDR4 memory. Core counts also extend from 18 cores to four cores, which will allow Intel's Xeon-W workstations to be designed with specific workloads in mind. 

With their new Xeon W processors, Intel is offering their customers a lot more value for money than they did with their last-generation Xeon lineup. This makes Intel's Xeon W-2200 lineup extremely competitive in today's Workstation market.

"Performance results are based on testing as of the date set forth in the configurations and may not reflect all publicly available security updates"

So this is performance figures only available to Intel. No one in any circumstances in the world outside of intel will be able to hit these advertised increases as the security updates have not been applied to these test products.

the words false advertising come to mind here. Its not as if we can order these without the security updates. Intel, sort yourself out before someone takes you to court for this sort of BS. When we are talking Xeons we are talking big businesses that you are ripping off not jo publicQuote

Well the 1680 v4 is a locked Broadwell processor with an all core turbo of 3.6GHz. FWIW the last gen Haswell 1680 v3 was unlocked and so could run faster.

So if the comparison is between the 8 core v4 and the unlocked 18-core which comes with higher all core turbo out of the box not to mention allowing higher clocked RAM then it would be somewhat surprising if it couldn't manage twice the performance with heavily threaded loads.Quote
