Intel said Monday its next-generation Xeon W-2200 and X-series processors will be available in November to enable AI acceleration in high end desktop PCs and workstations for use in 3D rendering, visual effects and data science.

New pricing was also announced for those processors as well as Core S-series processors without integrated graphics. The Xeon prices will range from $294 to $1,333 depending on the number of cores; there are eight options. The X-Series prices range from $590 to $979 depending also on the cores; there are four options.
