also from the cc ... Oracle already signing up for Ice Lake Server chips. These chips move to 8 ch ddr4, move to PCIE4 io and move to a Sunny Cove core that has demonstrated 18% IPC avg gain in the Ice Lake laptop chips.

"Recently, Oracle announced that they plan to leverage the computing performance of Ice Lake for the next generation of cloud-based, high-performance computing instances within Oracle cloud infrastructure."

"In its Q3 FY2020 conference call, Intel announced that it would have to delay initial shipments of its 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable 'Ice Lake-SP' CPUs to Q1 2021. "

WRONG!!! :(

3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors were already released in Q2'20 ...

Those aren't Ice Lake parts, they only have PCIe 3.0 and 6-channel memory.

Who cares what those parts were as they had a name change upon actual announcement/release to the current name of 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable (Products formerly Cooper Lake). Going to the 10nm process node, means that Intel would be extremely stupid to call those NEW parts 3rd Generation Xeon Scalable (which are currently a 14nm process node and the naming nomenclature has already been used), basic logic suggests that Intel will call these parts ... wait for it ... any minute now ... what is the rush ... ok now ... here we go ... 4th Generation Xeon Scalable (Products formerly Ice Lake). ;)

OK, according to Wikipedia ...
"Ice Lake is Intel's codename for the 10th generation Intel Core mobile processors based on the new Sunny Cove Core microarchitecture. Ice Lake represents an Architecture step in Intel's Process-Architecture-Optimization model.[1][2][3][4] Ice Lake CPUs are sold together with the 14 nm Comet Lake CPUs as Intel's "10th Generation Core" product family.[5][6]"

So, 3rd generation for Ice Lake, or maybe 10th generation, imho if I were Intel then I would want to ditch any association with 14nm given its rather prolonged history, in fact, I'd give it a whole new name. I am sort of assuming that these would be server parts.

Well, Intel isn't using basic logic here. The generation counts are meaningless on the Intel side.

Intel Launches 3rd-Gen Xeon Scalable CPUs: For 4, 8 Sockets Only

"Intel is taking a bifurcated approach with the launch of its new third-generation Xeon Scalable processors, releasing 14-nanometer parts first that only target four- and eight-socket servers and then dropping 10nm SKUs for one- and two-socket servers later this year. "
