Intel’s had a hard time ramping up production of 10nm chips, but after delivering two generations of laptop processors manufactured using a 10nm process, the company is finally introducing its first 10nm server chips.

The new 3rd-gen Xeon Scalable processors feature Sunny Cove CPU cores based on the same technology as the 10th-gen “Ice Lake” mobile chips that launched in 2019, but the server-class versions support up to 40 CPU cores, up to a 270 watt TDP, and have big improvements for memory bandwidth, among other things.

Intel is promising a big performance-per-watt improvement over previous-gen Xeon chips… and reviewers seem to agree that the company has delivered on that promise. Whether that’s enough to help Intel compete against the latest AMD and ARM-based server chips is another question.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

  1. Sorry sorta off topic, but what we need, chip shortage notwithstanding… is an ozone generator that can sanitize enclosed spaces, but will let you know when its safe to return. Right now, California bans ozone generation devices on health grounds, but I think the issue is being PRESENT. You’re supposed to leave the premises and wait for finish. Idk how that wait is determined, it’d be nice for a smartphone app to alert you, and of course, by this time, ozone would be minimal. We dont fumigate with people inside, so why ozone device ban? Indiegogo wanna tackle it?

    1. Dumb industrial devices do exist, but thats precisely the issue. No way to know ozone levels real time.

      1. Ozone pumps and Ozone bombs are actually on the market for some time. They’re used in the industrial sector, and one of the biggest reasons are for sterilization and elimination of mould.

        Sourced: used some few weeks ago

    2. Openhab would be great for that. A dedicated fumigation app that unnecessarily siphons user data for extra/all profits would be terrible.
