|Transistors||7 nanometer or 10 nanometer transistors|
|Predecessor||Tiger Lake (Optimization)|
|Successor||Granite Rapids (unknown)|
Sapphire Rapids is the Intel CPU microarchitecture based on either the second refinement of the 10 nanometer process or a new 7 nanometer process. It will be used as part of the Tinsley workstation and server platform after 2020.
Only very limited information on the desktop/mobile version of Sapphire Rapids exists as of January 2018[update]. Difficulties with the 10 nm and 7 nm fabrication processes may result in the release being pushed back to 2021 at the earliest.
