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).[1][2] Sapphire Rapids CPUs are designed for data centers; the roughly contemporary Alder Lake is intended for the wider public.[3]

Sapphire Rapids will be used as part of the Eagle Stream server platform in 2021.[4] In addition, it will be powering one of the first exascale supercomputers in the United States, Aurora, at Argonne National Laboratory.[5]
