As the industry’s first mainstream server processor with built-in bfloat16 support, Intel’s new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors make AI inference and training more widely deployable on general-purpose CPUs for applications that include image classification, recommendation engines, speech recognition, and language modelling.
“The ability to rapidly deploy AI and data analytics is essential for today’s business. We remain committed to enhancing built-in AI acceleration and software optimisations within the processor that powers the world’s data centre and edge solutions, as well as delivering an unmatched silicon foundation to unleash insight from data,” Lisa Spelman, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of the Xeon and Memory Group.
Why it is important: AI and analytics open new opportunities for customers across a broad range of industries, including finance, healthcare, industrial, telecom, and transportation. IDC predicts that by 2021, 75 per cent of enterprise applications will incorporate AI.. And by 2025, IDC estimates that roughly a quarter of all data generated will be created in real-time, with various Internet of Things (IoT) devices creating 95 per cent of that volume growth.
Unequalled portfolio breadth and ecosystem support for AI and analytics: Intel’s new data platforms, coupled with a thriving ecosystem of partners using Intel AI technologies, are optimised for businesses to monetise their data through the deployment of intelligent AI and analytics services.
The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (codenamed “Cooper Lake”) evolve Intel’s 4- and 8-socket processor offering. The processors are designed for deep learning, virtual machine (VM) density, in-memory database, mission-critical applications, and analytics-intensive workloads. Customers refreshing ageing infrastructure can expect an average estimated gain of 1.9x on popular workloads 3 and up to 2.2-times more VMs4 compared with 5-year-old, 4-socket platform equivalents.
When products are available: The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Optane persistent memory 200 series are shipping to customers today. In May, Facebook announced that 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors are the foundation for its newest Open Compute Platform (OCP) servers, and other leading CSPs, including Alibaba, Baidu, and Tencent, have announced they are adopting the next-generation processors. General OEM systems availability is expected in the second half of 2020. The Intel SSD D7-P5500 and P5600 3D NAND SSDs are available today. And the Intel Stratix 10 NX FPGA is expected to be available in the second half of 2020.
Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) is an industry leader, creating world-changing technology that enables global progress and enriches lives. Inspired by Moore’s Law, we continuously work to advance the design and manufacturing of semiconductors to help address our customers’ greatest challenges. By embedding intelligence in the cloud, network, edge, and every kind of computing device, we unleash the potential of data to transform business and society for the better.
