Intel this week initiated end-of-life plan for 2 of its 2nd Technology Xeon Scalable (Cascade Lake) processors, presumably in a bid to cut back the variety of SKUs within the new household. The CPUs in query are the Xeon Gold 6222 in addition to Xeon Gold 6262 and Intel recommends to make use of totally different variations of those merchandise as a substitute.
Intel’s 20-core Xeon Gold 6222 (1.80/3.60 GHz, 27.5 MB cache) and 24-core Xeon Gold 6262 (1.9/3.6 GHz, 33 MB cache) processors with two UPI hyperlinks weren’t formally part of the Cascade Lake household launched in April and have been in all probability out there to pick out prospects solely. In the meantime, Intel’s lineup did embody the Xeon Gold 6222V and Xeon Gold 6262V merchandise that featured the identical specification when it comes to core rely, frequency, cache measurement, TDP, and different, however had three UPI hyperlinks to allow extra versatile 4P configurations. In reality, in response to Intel’s ARK database, the CPUs even carry the identical tray pricing because the V counterparts.

By EOLing the Xeon Gold 6222 and Xeon Gold 6262 CPUs, Intel reduces strain on its manufacturing community because it now not has to disable a further UPI hyperlink inside these chips and even discover silicon that has a damaged UPI interface. Finally, having fewer SKUs is less complicated to handle.
These Intel prospects who want the Xeon Gold 6222 and Xeon Gold 6262 processors are suggested to position their orders by December 27, 2019. The ultimate CPUs will probably be shipped by November 6, 2020. In the meantime, the Xeon Gold 6222V and Xeon Gold 6262V will proceed to ship onwards.
