It's interesting that we haven't heard much from Intel about future Xeon D processors. The original Xeon D was said to be a custom job for Facebook that was later offered more broadly -- perhaps future Xeon D-like chips will be custom-only and we don't hear about them publicly?
I suspect that we won't see a replacement until 10nm. SKX cores don't add much for that sort of workload, I would guess.

I wonder if the SKL client cores may be a better fit for these SoCs?

It look's like it wasn't an Unicorn after all...

UK Antes Up £20 Million for Six New Supercomputer Centers

Quote:
Great Western 4 (GW4) HPC Centre for Advanced Architectures

This center will house Isambard, an ARM-based supercomputer. As we reported in January, Isambard will be a Cray cluster based on the CS400 platform. We have since learned that the machine will be equipped with Broadcom’s Vulcan processor, whose IP is now owned by Cavium. Isambard will be the UK’s (and the world’s) first decent-sized production HPC system powered by ARM processors. The effort is being led by Simon McIntosh-Smith at the University of Bristol, and the initial outlay will be £3 million.
