New pricing was also announced for those processors as well as Core S-series processors without integrated graphics.

Intel reaffirmed that the duo of CPUs are geared towards the High-End Desktop (HEDT) market and feature Intel Deep Learning Boost, which grants the chips an AI inference improvement of 2.2x in relation to the company's existing HEDT CPUs. The 8 new processors: W-2295, W-2275, W-2265, W-2255, W-2245, W-2235, W-2224, W-2223, will be able to be used in multiple form factors, including small desktops and towers. Meanwhile, the previous generation Xeon W-2195 has a recommended pricing of $2,553 for the same number of cores but lower base and boost clock frequencies. They also support Intel Optane SSDs and Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0. That could possibley come later this year or early next year, though no word of a refresh has been relayed yet.

"No matter if you are a data scientist, cinema creator or freelancer, Intel Xeon W and X-series offer power and flexibility of choice, enabling you to work creatively and competitively across even the most intensive workloads", said Frank Soqui, general manager of the desktop, workstation and channel group at Intel. Four new processors in the range, the i9-10980XE, i9-10940X, i9-10920X, and i9-10900X, according to Intel, are specifically suited for video editing, game development, and 3D animation. Deep Learning Boost, on the other hand, allows the new processors to handle 16.1 times more images per second.

These chips weren't created to be a value proposition, but rather to help Intel deal with stock shortages, by making use of chips which would otherwise have been binned (and we mean literally binned) due to having faulty integrated GPUs.

In any case, Intel's chose to make the new processor pricing more "rational", in the words of Frank Soqui, a vice president of the Client Computing Group.

Copeland said he expects Intel's new pricing structure will help drive a new refresh opportunity, especially for those with aging Mac Pros. The prices for the Xeon W-2225 and Xeon W-2223 are unchanged from the previous generation. Intel will flog the Xeon W-2295, starting at $1333.
