Press Release

Intel introduces powerful Intel Xeon Scalable Processors that’s specially architected towards the evolving data centre and network infrastructure today. The new processors offer higher energy efficiencies and better system-level performance of up to 1.65X performance improvement compared to the previous generation. The new Intel Xeon Scalable Processors are designed to support the existing and future expansions of data centres and network workloads for artificial intelligence, high-performance computing, cloud computing and other related applications.

Watch the introduction video on the Intel Xeon Scalable Processors below.

Intel Xeon Scalable processors offer businesses with the richest suite of platform feature innovations that deliver significant performance increases across key workloads that are defined below:

Artificial Intelligence: Delivers 2.2x higher deep learning training and inference compared to the previous generation, and 113x deep learning performance gains compared to a 3-year-old non-optimized server system when combined with software optimizations speeding delivery of AI-fuelled services.
Networking: Delivers up to 2.5x increased IPSec forwarding rate for key networking applications compared to previous generation when using Intel QuickAssist and DPDK increasing the value derived from network transformation.
Virtualization: Operates up to an estimated 4.2x more virtual machines (VMs) versus a 4-year-old system for rapid service deployment, server utilization, lower energy costs and space efficiency spurring enterprise data centre modernization.
High Performance Computing: Provides up to a 2x FLOPs/clock improvement with Intel AVX-512 as well as integrated Intel Omni-Path Architecture ports, delivering improved compute capability, I/O flexibility and memory bandwidth to accelerate discovery and innovation.
Storage: Processes up to 5x more IOPS while reducing latency by up to 70% versus out-of-the-box NVMe SSDs when combined with Intel Optane SSDs and Storage Performance Development Kit (SPDK), making data more accessible for advanced analytics.
