Intel launches 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor for data centers, touts nearly 50 percent jump, built-in AI. Intel adds in her growth under the R & D department by launching its 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor for data centers.
This CPU, which is based on a 10-nanometer process can deliver up to 40 cores per processor, within the words of Intel an average 46 percent jump in performance on popular data center workloads over the last generation. Intel also claims that it is the only data center processor with built-in AI.
Intel aims to designed to power the industry to take the workloads on the broadest range with launching more than 50 unique OEMs over 250 sever based on the new platform alongside.”Our 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable platform is the most flexible performant in our history, designed to handle the diversity of workloads from the cloud to the network to the edge.”
Navin Shenoy is the EVP and GM of Intel’s data platform group. He said in a statement,” Intel is uniquely positioned with architecture, design, and manufacturing to deliver the breadth intelligent silicon and solutions our customers demand.
Intel adding nearly 50 percent in their performance, the new chip also has Intel’s SGX (Software Guard Extension), to “protect sensitive code and data with the smallest potential attack surprise within the system.”
The technology can isolate and process up to 1 terabyte of code and data in private memory areas that Intel calls enclaves. It contains a lot of security features including total memory encryption and platform firmware Resilience that together can “address today’s most pressing data protection concerns.”
The chip also features cryptographic acceleration for businesses that run encryption-intensive workloads.
Lastly, the new chip boasts 74 percent faster AI performance compared with the previous generation making it possible “to infuse AI into every application edge to network to cloud.”
Ice lake supports up to six terabytes of system memory, up to eight channels of DDR4-3200 memory, and up to 64 lanes of PCIe Gen 4 per socket.
