Top Performance and Sustainable Benefits with a Fully Integrated Accelerator
Currently, there are more than 100 million Xeon processors in use on the market: from servers with on-premises software running IT services, including new as-a-service business models, to network equipment that manages internet traffic, to wireless base station computers at the edge, to cloud services.
Built on decades of innovation and leadership in the data center, networking, and intelligent edge, 4th generation Xeon processors deliver class-leading performance with integrated accelerators. The perfect match for any CPU in the world to solve your most important business problems in AI, analytics, networking, security, storage, and HPC.
With the full integration of accelerators into 4th Gen Xeon, Intel can provide platform-level power savings, reduce the need for additional discrete accelerators, and help businesses achieve the goals of sustainable development.
Additionally, Power Optimized Mode can save 20% power consumption with a performance impact of less than 5% on specified applications. Improvements in gas and liquid cooling also significantly reduce data center energy consumption. During the production of 4th generation Xeon, new Intel processors are born with 90% or more renewable electricity at Intel factories with state-of-the-art water reclamation facilities.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
In terms of AI and compared to the previous generation, 4th Gen Xeon processors achieve up to 10x faster real-time training and inference performance on the PyTorch framework thanks to Intel® Advanced Matrix Extension (Intel) accelerators ® AMX) is built-in. Intel’s 4th generation Xeon unlocks new possibilities in training and inference performance across a wide range of AI applications.
The Xeon Max CPU family expands on these capabilities for natural language processing with up to 20x acceleration on large language models.
With Intel providing the AI software suite, programmers can choose to use the AI toolkit, while increasing productivity and shortening AI development time. This toolkit is portable from the workstation, so it can be extended in the cloud and all the way to the edge. And this toolkit has been validated with more than 400 machine learning and deep learning AI models in the most common AI use cases across every business segment.
With 4th Gen Xeon, Intel delivers a range of processors specifically optimized for high performance, low-latency connectivity, and cloud edge applications. These processors are an important part of the platform that drives the future of software-defined solutions-using industries, from telecommunications and retail to manufacturing and smart cities.
For applications that require 5G, built-in accelerators support increased throughput and reduced latency. At the same time, improvements in power management enhance both the responsiveness and efficiency of the platform. When compared to previous generations, Xeon Generation 4 provides twice the capacity of virtualized radio network (vRAN) access without increasing power consumption. This enables communications service providers to double their performance per watt to meet critical needs for performance, scalability, and energy efficiency.
High performance computing
A balanced and scalable architecture, 4th Gen Xeon and Intel Max series integrate CPUs and GPUs with oneAPI’s open software ecosystem to handle compute-intensive applications in HPC and AI , as well as solving some of the most challenging problems in the world today.
The Xeon Max CPU family is the first and only x86 processor with high memory bandwidth, accelerating many HPC applications without code changes. The Intel Data Center Max GPU family is Intel’s highest-density processor yet and will be available in a variety of configurations to address unique business needs.
The Xeon Max CPU family offers 64 GB of high-bandwidth memory (HBM2e) to dramatically increase data throughput for HPC and AI applications. Compared to the latest 3rd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, the Xeon Max CPU family delivers 3.7x more performance in real-world applications such as modeling of power systems and the earth.
In addition, the Data Center Max GPU family features more than 100 billion transistors packed in 47-tiles, taking data throughput to a new level to handle heavy-duty applications such as physics, financial services, and more. major and life sciences. Combined with the Xeon Max CPU family, the system achieves 12.8x better performance than the previous generation when running the LAMMPS molecular dynamics simulator.
The Most Featured and Secure Xeon Platform
Symbolizing Intel’s biggest platform innovation to date, Gen 4 Xeon not only delivers a feat of acceleration, but it is a feat in the manufacturing industry that combines the four tiles of the process. Intel 7 programming in a single chip and incorporates Intel EMIB (embedded multi-die interconnect bridge) packaging technology and offers new features such as increased memory bandwidth with DDR5 , increase I/O bandwidth with PCIe5.0 and Compute Express Link (CXL) 1.1 connectivity.
Above all, the core foundation of Xeon Generation 4 is security. Through the new chip model, Intel delivers the most comprehensive portfolio of secure computing available today of any data center processor vendor in the industry with enhanced data security, regulatory compliance , and data sovereignty.
Intel is the only processor vendor to offer application isolation for data center servers through Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX), thereby limiting small attack surface vulnerabilities. best for secure computing in private, public, and cloud-to-edge environments. Furthermore, Intel’s new virtual-machine (VM) isolation technology – Intel® Trust Domain Extensions (Intel® TDX) – is ideal for migrating existing applications to a secure environment. The technology will be available on Microsoft Azure, Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud and IBM Cloud.
Finally, with the modular architecture on Xeon 4th Generation, Intel can offer a wide range of processors with nearly 50 different products to meet the unique needs of customers or for applications, from from general-purpose products, to those for cloud, database and analytics, networking, storage, and single-socket edge use cases ( single socket). The 4th generation Xeon processor family can meet demand with many variations in cores, clocks, combinations of accelerators, average power, and memory capacity to suit your needs. application and design to meet actual customer conditions.
