Intel said its next-generation Xeon Scalable CPUs will launch in January of next year, shortly after a new report out of Taiwan stated that mass production of the server chips were delayed to 2023.

The semiconductor giant announced a January 10 launch date next year for the oft-delayed processors, code-named Sapphire Rapids, on Tuesday. The company said mass-production Sapphire Rapids units now meet product release qualifications, and it has begun ramping up production. This echoes statements made by Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger during the company's earnings call last week.

"We are ramping the product as we speak... We expect this will be our fastest-ever Xeon to a million units. And we're going to push that quite aggressively, and the factories are ramping up as we speak," he said.

While Intel has announced a launch event for Sapphire Rapids, it is still not known when next year the processors will be commercially available for the broader IT market. Increasingly in the past few years, there have been gaps between launch events for products and general availability.

Intel, late on Tuesday, officially confirmed that its Sapphire Rapids processors are coming to workstations in a teaser video published on Twitter. This is the first official confirmation that the company intends to address this market with its upcoming Sapphire Rapids CPUs. However, Intel is still tight-lipped about the specifications of these upcoming products.

"This thing is ridiculous, it used to take whole room full of computers to do what this is doing on its own, there go my 30-minute rendering coffee breaks," says a lady in the video. "I was on a meeting the other day and our final test runs are coming back really good, so I'd say pretty soon. You should probably take that coffee break while you still can.
