Intel Xeon Clearwater Forest present in the Linux kernel code, we know what cores will go to the CPU


Intel Xeon Clearwater Forest present in the Linux kernel code, we know what cores will go to the CPUThis year, Intel will introduce Xeon processors from the Sierra Forest family to the market, which will use only energy-saving E-core cores. This architecture is to use a maximum of 288 cores and the same number of threads, which are intended to cope primarily with server tasks involving databases and general multithreading. Now, thanks to the update of the Linux kernel to version 6.8, we have learned a little more about the successor of this CPU family.

The identifier for Intel Xeon processors from the Clearwater Forest family appeared in the Linux 6.8 kernel code. The architecture is to use 288 new E-Core Darkmont cores and is expected to appear in 2025.

Linux, because it is an open source system, has been used for years to search for information about upcoming CPU and GPU units. It is no different this time, where in kernel version 6.8 there is a new identifier for Intel Xeon processors from the Clearwater Forest family under the designation: “0xDD”. As we can read from the code below, the new line of server systems will use the new energy-saving E-Core Darkmont cores, just like the yet unannounced consumer CPU series: Phantom Lake.

Intel Clearwater Forest architecture similar to Sierra Forest it is to use only energy-saving E-Core cores and is also to be limited to 288 cores and threads. However, it is worth mentioning that the Crestmont cores used by the Sierra Forest family are made in Intel 4 lithography (7 nm equivalent). However, the Darkmont cores from the Clearwater Forest family are to use the newer Intel 18A technological process along with new redesigned RibbonFET transistors, which you can read more about here.
