Rumors have been circulating for a while about a new high-end desktop platform from Intel’s stables. According to Moore’s Law Dies, the Fishhawk Falls manufacturer plans to launch such a product line before the end of this year that will take advantage of the powerful Golden Cove cores found in Alder Lake desktop processors.

For example, Fishhawk Falls should combine up to 24 cores and 48 threads with an all-core boost clock of 4.4 to 4.6 GHz. A single core should be able to boost to 5-5.2 GHz. To achieve these speeds Team Blue will use a PL1 power limit of 200-300 watts followed by a PL2 TDP of 300 to 400 watts. Other features include lga4677 socket, 64 pcie gen 5.0 lines and quad channel ddr5 memory support. Tom from MLID expects this CPU range to be around the third or fourth quarter of this year.

In addition to the aforementioned main workstation platform, Intel is also reportedly working on a more powerful Expert variant. The same lga4677 processor leg is discussed, but these CPUs contain up to 56 Golden Cove cores. In addition to the number of cores, the number of PCI 5.0 lanes has been increased to 112, in terms of memory eight DDR5 channels will be offered. Moreover, there is talk in the aisles of two-socket motherboards that Intel will use with Zen 4 to compete with the AMD Threadripper (Pro) series.

The YouTuber also learned more about the unannounced Zen 4-based workstation chips. Like Genoa for servers, the new Threadrippers will have up to 96 cores. It is not clear so far whether AMD wants to release only a Pro series, as it did with the 5000 series. Intel will also consider Fishhawk Falls as a workstation product rather than a new hedt variant.
