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.
