high core count for future CPU suggestion

Hello Intel community, 

I always have a dream of creating processors, but for now, I will just add my 2 cents here. 

I research and examine the core count for AMD and Intel. It appears there is some improvement for Intel for core count. If Intel can integrate 28 cores, why not integrated double/triple to 84 cores or more by shrinking the process or other technology. Another way is to integrated cores (80) using Foveros - hybrid CPU technologies, perhaps, putting 2 cores stacked or 2 cores by circuit. I see there might be slower frequencies with increasing cores but that is a trade-off with a higher core count. It might need a special turbo level at some stages in the processor. It appears there is a lower core count with high frequencies for high-performance servers processes. That is normal. Hopefully, that helps with Intel.

Hello legolasyiu,


Thank you for joining the community


We appreciate your suggestion and will router appropriately to our research and design team.


Just as a background info there has been Xeon processors designed with higher core counts like the Xeon Phi 7295 series with up to 72 cores running at a frequency of 1.6 GHz.

Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processor 7295 (16GB, 1.5 GHz, 72 Core) Product Specifications


In case you have further comments just let us know.

No, no discussion.  This is a technical support forum.

Hello @legolasyiu

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.


We understand that you are providing suggestions for future CPU developments. Is this correct?

In order to determine the proper channel of support, could you please confirm if this is general feedback referring to processors for "end-users" (e.g.: Intel® Core™/Pentium®/Celeron® Processors) or is this regarding Intel® Server Processors/Server Platforms (e.g.: Intel® Xeon® Processors)?


Best regards,

Hello team,

Thanks for the information. 
Intel Xeon Phil Processor is EOL? it was out at 2017.


If Intel had the expertise to design Xeon Phi 7295. You can use a similar layout for Xeon and increase frequency from 1.6Ghz to a much higher frequency with 7nm/10nm node technology and you can get the cores count and speed needed to compete with others vendors.
