The first results of a 32-core Intel Xeon processor have surfaced in Geekbench. Presumably this would be Skylake-EP from the pending Purley-platform. Intel earlier on indicated that this platform would get 'only' 28 cores.
The results for the 165 Watt 32-core and 64-threaded processor are roughly 4000 points for a single core and 50000 points for the multi-core score. The base clock frequency per core would be 2.1 GHz, the results however indicate 2.3 GHz.
Purley is the successor to the Nehalem architecture, a platform based on motherboard chipset and thus the processor series. The processor platform will come enable six-channels DDR4, and AVX 512 instruction set and a new 100G OmniPath interconnect. Purley will support for no less than 8 processor sockets and will come with Cannonlake graphics and FPGA integration. The PCH is designed under code-name Lewisburg and it'll ship with new Ethernet controllers, these seem to be 10Gbps.
The Purley platform is tied towards a Socket LGA 3647. This entails twelve DDR4 (384-bit wide) slots (no joke) considering this processor has a six channel memory controller.
