According to SkyJuice60 (Angstronomics) and YuuKi_AnS photos, the new socket called 7529 not only will offer 61% more pins than current LGA-4677 platform for Sapphire/Emerald Rapids, but it will also be significantly larger. The package die area is estimated to be 105×70.5 mm, which means an increase of 70% compared to current Xeon series.


According to the rumors, Granite Rapids may offer 128 cores (Redwood+ Cove), while Sierra Forest at least 334 smaller cores (core name was not confirmed yet). Intel is reportedly developing even more powerful variants, however information on such designs is still very limited.

Just think of the R&D that went into making that blanket static free...



Interesting stuff, hopefully I can get my hands on some of it someday!
