Intel announces its latest lineup of Intel Xeon W and X-series processors, which puts new classes of computing performance and AI acceleration into the hands of professional creators and PC enthusiasts, the company says.
The Intel Xeon W-2200 and X-series processors are targeted to be available starting November, along with a new pricing structure that represents an easier step up for creators and enthusiasts from Intel Core S-series mainstream products, Intel says.
Professional creator capabilities
Xeon W-2200 platforms are targeted towards professional creators, with “expanded platform capabilities for data science, visual effects, 3D rendering, complex 3D CAD, AI development and edge deployments.”
“They can be used in configurable form-factors – from small desktop to towers – as well as include built-in platform security features and reliability, such as ECC support and Intel vPro, which creative professionals demand. For example, the 3D architectural rendering process on Autodesk Revit with V-Ray accelerates up to 10 percent faster compared with the previous generation and up to 2 times faster compared with a 3-year-old workstation.” — Intel
New Xeon W prices range from $294 to $1,333.

Freelancers, prosumers, & enthusiasts
For freelancers, prosumers and desktop enthusiasts who may not need advanced features, Intel Core X-series processors provide the performance with the added flexibility of overclocking capabilities.
“These four new processors (i9-10980XE, i9-10940X, i9-10920X and i9-10900X) are especially suited for advanced workflows that vary in need for photo/video editing, game development and 3D animation. Additionally, they deliver enthusiast-ready enhanced features, like Intel Performance Maximizer that makes it easy to dynamically and reliably custom-tune the unlocked processors based on the X-series’ individual performance DNA.” — Intel
New X-series prices range from $590 to $979.
