The most advanced performance data center platform from Intel was recently launched with x86 processors featuring built-in AI technology. These processors are expected to provide up to 46% better performance for server solutions while accelerating deployment across HPC, networking, edge applications, cloud, AI, enterprise, and security.
Intel recently announced they have launched a more advanced and higher performing data center platform ready to handle a broad range of workloads including cloud hosting, intelligent edge, and network. This new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor, which has been nicknamed Ice Lake, offers a way for hosting providers delivering server solutions to leverage the power of AI and might allow some to take advantage of new business opportunities.
These new processors are expected to provide a larger increase in performance up to 46% when it comes to the most popular server workloads. The new 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors may provide better built-in security with the Intel SGX and Intel Crypto Acceleration. Adding this new processor to the broad range of options from Intel may offer customers a way to accelerate their deployments across HPC, networking, edge applications, cloud, AI, enterprise, and security.
Built-in AI Acceleration
Offering AI performance, simplicity, and productivity, the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors are expected to provide more value for customers. As the only x86 server processor offering built-in AI acceleration, the Intel Xeon offers a turnkey solution making it easier to infuse AI into every application.
Intel believes the latest software and hardware optimizations will speed up the AI performance compared to older generations and provide better performance compared to other options on the market.
Built-in Crypto Acceleration
The Intel Crypto Acceleration is built into this processor, which might offer better performance across cryptographic algorithms. For those companies using encryption-intensive workloads with a large number of customer transactions every day, this technology may be used to provide better cybersecurity for customer data.
Along with the Crypto Acceleration, Intel made this new processor with built-in Intel SGX to help protect sensitive data. The 2-socket Xeon Scalable processors offer this security feature, which can isolate up to 1 terabyte of data and code to help support mainstream workloads. Along with the Intel SGX, this new processor also offers Total Memory Encryption and Platform Firmware Resilience from Intel.
Flexible Performance Across Multiple Market Segments
The 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processors provide a potential solution for those seeking flexible performance for their server solutions across the cloud, intelligent edge, and networking. These processors can benefit several market segments and offer a potential solution for the cloud, the network, and the intelligent edge.
The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors come optimized for cloud workloads and can support many service environments. More than 800 cloud service providers use Intel Xeon Scalable processors and many will be offering services using the 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (opens PDF).
These processors from Intel are also optimized for the network and designed to support many network environments and workloads. They can also deliver the necessary performance and security for the intelligent edge for complex video or image analytics and consolidated workloads.
