Intel is ahead of normal client. They are only behind in servers, which Sapphire Rapids is a early 2021 product w/ WillowcoveX(Server-core). Intel is feint producing a lot of fake products, Cannonlake/Icelake, etc. Now you see it, now you don't: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us...nnon-lake.html. The only volume cores are Willowcove/Goldencove(Tock-tick) and the VISC-Future(xPU ISA)-NextGenCore(tock-refresh-refresh-refresh-etc).
Client isn't where the money is so being behind in servers is a big problem for their bottom line. Especially when you take into account all of the exploits in the core architecture that they seem unablet o fix.
