    Intel officially launch their new Intel Xeon Scalable processors from the Skylake-PS family with the flagship being Intel Xeon Scalable Platinum 8180 with 28 cpu cores / 56 cpu threads @2.50Ghz with Turbo @3.7Ghz. Yes Intel Xeon Platinum 81xx series supports a maximum of 8 cpu sockets for a total of 8x 28C/56T = 224 cpu cores and 448 cpu threads :D
    From Intel Xeon Scalable Processor Family SKUs and Value Analysis. Strangely doesn't list Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 which STH folks benchmarked at Quad Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 Initial Benchmarks

    DigitalOcean seems to one of the first to use the Intel Xeon Platinum 8168 cpu in their new High CPU Droplet KVM VPSes.

    yes Quad Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 = 4x 28C/56T = 112 CPU Cores and 224 CPU Threads !

    Compare that will lower Intel Xeon E3 v6 etc Intel Xeon E3-1225 V6 Linux Benchmarks and Review, the Quad Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 manages almost 50 Linux Kernel compiles/hr versus AMD Ryzen 7 1800X at almost 7 Linux Kernel compiles/hr !

    Intel Xeon Platinum 8176 Skylake-SP cpu's turbo frequency steps Intel Xeon Platinum 8176 Scalable Processor Review

    upload_2017-7-12_11-34-7.png

    so at Intel Xeon Platinum 8176 is reported by media at it's non-AVX Base 2.1Ghz frequency and at all cpu cores (28) boosts to 2.8Ghz, 1-2 cpus @3.8Ghz, 5-8 cpus @3.5Ghz and 13-16 cpus @3.4Ghz. So even at 17-20 cpus @3.1Ghz - that is fast for that many cpu cores !

    • Intel Xeon Platinum 8180 Skylake-SP 2.5Ghz base and 3.8Ghz Turbo
    • Intel Xeon Platinum 8176 Skylake-SP 2.1Ghz base and 3.8Ghz Turbo
    non-AV clocks look the same up to 12 cpu cores at least

    Anandtech's Ian Cutress notes that there is an Intel Xeon Gold 6154 part which boosts to 3.7Ghz for all 18 cpu cores Ian Cutress on Twitter !

    One thing overlooked or not focused on much is certain Intel Xeon Scalable processors will have native Intel Quick Assist Technology (QAT) to accelerate OpenSSL performance (in OpenSSL 1.1 branch). Here's Intel Quick Assist Technology benchmarks for the addon PCIE cards done at STH a while back Intel QuickAssist Technology and OpenSSL - Benchmarks and Setup Tips

    Intel QAT allowed Nginx HTTPS to have slightly better performance but with dramatic reduction in cpu utilisation for test Wordpress Nginx HTTPS benchmarks
