Sapphire Rapids is a codename for Intel's next generation Xeon server processors based on the 3rd refinement of the 10 nanometer process (named 10 nm Enhanced SuperFin or 10ESF). Sapphire Rapids CPUs are designed for data centers; the roughly contemporary Alder Lake is intended for the wider public.
Sapphire Rapids will be used as part of the Eagle Stream server platform in 2021. In addition, it will be powering one of the first exascale supercomputers in the United States, Aurora, at Argonne National Laboratory.
