Intel's next-gen Skylake-E processor will arrive in LGA 3647 socket
8 channel ram??
Edit: There are 6 dimm slots on each side. Although I think 3647 pins would have more than needed pins for 6 channel.
There is at least 1 rumor that AMD will use 8 channel ram on their server platform in 2017 as well.
Yeah, it's a 6 channel RAM set up from all the tables and charts that have been released.
On a side note, that socket looks like a G34 stocket to me! Looks funny on an Intel board.
Is there more PCIe lanes then?
48 lanes are expected instead of 40.
Hopefully they have a new chipset....
I would expect a new chipset.
I read somewhere they would launch the socket with no new chipset initially. But probably just a rumor.
Edit - because I see posts afterward which seem to be missing this:
THIS IS NOT A SKYLAKE-E SOCKET
It appears to be incorrect reporting by tweaktown.
Looks like Xeon Phi to me: SuperComputing 15: Intel’s Knights Landing / Xeon Phi Silicon on Display
That socket is huge even in comparison to LGA2011/LGA2011-3. You can even see two distinctive seperate sockets that look like they comprise one single socket. I wonder how many levers and retention mechanisms it would have. The motherboards would also have to have extra PCB layers to accommodate 12 slots for the memory and I can just imagine the cooler and the motherboard weight. This is practically server territory now.
Seeing the Xeon Phi cpus that have the extension im wondering why Skylake E CPUs could have that T right into the PCIE main slots for for GPUs. Is the PCIE slot a limiting factor still?
Are those pin holes instead of contacts? It'd be nice to see Intel CPUs with pins again, but I'd feel sorry for anyone that had to unbend pins on one of those CPUs.
P4s had a tiny pin pitch, those were a nightmare to fix if you knackered the pins. But still, at least you don't have to worry about the motherboard anymore.
Its still a LGA or Land Grid Array.
Unlocked 12-16 core for this platform? Maybe even up to 20? I smell some serious cooling solutions on the horizon given the size of that socket.
Coming next year Intel 12 core I7 XXX. They will even be nice and put some lube in the box and only charge $2000+ for it.
I expect AMD will have $2000+ server/workstation CPUs next year as well on the zen server platform. Although these will support ECC and probably will allow overclocking.
Glad I resisted an X99 build late last year. Looks behemothical, a dual xeon version under water would be interesting to say the least.
With Broadwell-E's performance gains being minimal at best, I'm now setting my eyes on this monster as I'm drooling over the 12 RAM slots bigtime. I wonder whether Intel by then will have noted resistance to the i7-6950X's extremely elevated pricing and end up placing the Skylake-E's top chip under or over the $2K mark. Either way, I'm grabbing this one and plunking at least 96GB RAM in it. I'd like to see Photoshop moan about insufficient memory then!
guys this is false. It is a new xeon socket. Also why would you want this? You would need to get new cpu blocks and everything. If more pins is what you want then maybe look into the xeon phi
Correct. Intel is segregating their 1P and 2P parts moving forward. 2P parts will be based on the 3647 socket and all 1P is on a 2011 successor (I think it's 2063). The 1P market is further segregated into X and W segments...the X is the new HEDT segment and the W is the new workstation side (what was the E5-1600 series). The X and W segments will both be based on the same socket.
Sorry, I guess I just saw the photo and jumped the gun. What I really want is more RAM sockets, so I guess that there is no way of knowing if Skylake-E will be set up with more than the 8 on LGA2011?
If Skylake-E has 6 channel ram I would expect 12 RAM slots on high end boards although cheaper boards may opt for only 6 slots.
I think 6 channel ram is the next logical step. Intel was using dual-channel for a very long time until they introduced triple channel memory with X58 in 2008. Then in 2011 they introduced quad channel with X79 and X99 uses quad channel as well. Now 5-6 years later it looks like they are going for a 6 channel memory configuration. This would also make 6 channel kits very expensive especially if someone wants to use all 12 RAM slots.
It's not the end of the world to not use a RAM kit, but it'll be expensive anyway because that's already a shit ton of RAM. A 6 slot board with 8GB sticks will accommodate 48GB which is plenty for 95% of people. I expect 16GB DIMMs to me more available soon, so that's even more, if you need it. My system has 24GB, and I use and regularly max it out, so I understand the need for a lot of RAM, but 96 or 192GB is insane.
What's a RAM socket?
What has set this expectation?
James Reinders Leaving Intel and What It Means | PC Perspective
Exiting Intel, James Reinders Offers a Brief Personal Retrospective
He was the man behind the Xeon Phi and wrote several books on parallelism. Intel offered him early retirement and he took it. Wonder what that means for Xeon Phi.
It's where an electric pickup truck recharges.
It just means Reinder's second in charge becomes primary on the Phi.

Hmm, AMD SP3 socket. Is that the real name for the upcoming AMD server socket?
