The Intel® Xeon® Gold 6338 Processor is a server-grade CPU manufactured by Intel Corporation. Here are some key details about this processor:
Architecture: The Xeon Gold 6338 is based on the Intel x86-64 microarchitecture, specifically the Ice Lake-SP architecture.
Core Count: It features 40 processor cores. Each core can handle two simultaneous threads using Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology, resulting in a total of 80 threads.
Clock Speed: The base clock speed of the Xeon Gold 6338 is 2.3 GHz. It also supports Intel Turbo Boost technology, which dynamically adjusts the clock speed based on workload and thermal conditions to provide increased performance when needed.
Cache: It has a total of 57.5 MB of cache memory, which is divided into L1, L2, and L3 caches. The L1 cache consists of separate instruction and data caches for each core, while the L2 cache is shared among the cores. The L3 cache is a larger, shared cache that provides additional data storage closer to the cores.
Memory Support: The processor supports DDR4 memory technology and can also support Intel Optane Persistent Memory modules for increased memory capacity and performance.
TDP (Thermal Design Power): The Xeon Gold 6338 has a TDP of 240 watts. This value represents the maximum amount of heat generated by the processor under typical operating conditions and helps determine the cooling requirements for the server system.
Socket and Platform Compatibility: The Xeon Gold 6338 uses the LGA 4189 socket. It is designed for server platforms and is not compatible with consumer desktop motherboards.
Features: The Xeon Gold 6338 supports various server-oriented features such as ECC (Error-Correcting Code) memory, virtualization technologies (Intel VT-x and VT-d), and advanced reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) features. It also includes Intel Deep Learning Boost (DL Boost) technology for enhanced AI inference performance.
