Nothing like making yourself less popular with a chip subscription service

Chipzilla has officially revealed its Intel On Demand programme that will switch on accelerators and features in the Xeon Scalable Sapphire Rapids processor for a fee.

According to Tom's Hardware*the new pay-as-you-go programme allows Intel to reduce the number of SKUs it ships while still capitalising on the technologies it has to offer. Clients can upgrade their machines without replacing actual hardware or offering additional services to their clients.

Intel's upcoming Intel's 4th Generation Xeon Scalable Sapphire Rapids processors are equipped with various special-purpose accelerators and security technologies that all customers do not need at all times. Software Defined Silicon (SDSi) technology means Chipzilla can sell fewer CPU models.
