At Intel’s Innovation 2022 event, Intel unveiled the Sapphire Rapids’ accelerators in a demo. Already delayed over a year, the Sapphire Rapids silicon is onboarded in Intel’s 4th generation Xeon Processor series. Now promised to be available in the first quarter of 2023, its promotion time for Intel.
