The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors

 


Overview

The 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processors are optimized for cloud, enterprise, HPC, network, security, and IoT workloads with 8 to 40 powerful cores plus a wide range of features, frequency, and power levels. It is fast becoming the foundation for secure, agile, hybrid-cloud data centers. With superior hardware-based security and incomparable multi-socket processing performance, these processors are built for mission-critical, real-time analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence, high-performance computing (HPC), and multi-cloud workloads.

The Portfolio 

The recent launch of the 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors exemplifies a balanced architecture with built-in acceleration and advanced security capabilities. The processor features a clear generational boost with 46% of increased performance. In addition, it provides solutions to several key challenges impacting many organizations today. Designed through decades of innovation for the most in-demand workload requirements, the 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon can store more, move faster, and process the most demanding workloads.

With the innovations in multi-cloud computing, the prevalence in IoT adoption, the IT/OT integration, and the increasing usage of 5G, data is progressively spawned everywhere, and by everything. This is how the explosion of data can lead to rapid innovation. Collecting, analyzing, and sharing this data securely and intelligently by enterprising businesses are primed to outperform competitors.

Security & Reliability

A range of alternatives and security protection mechanisms are ably provided to protect data and application code, in particular Intel® Software Guard Extension (Intel® SGX). Intel® SGX provides developers a hardware-based to partition their code and data into CPU hardened trusted execution environments Trusted Execution Environment (TEE). Added to it is the Intel® AES-NI, which is a set of instructions that enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption. AES-NI is valuable for a wide range of cryptographic applications, for example, the applications performing bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation, and authenticated encryption. Moreover, Intel® Trusted Execution Technology which affords safer computing is a versatile set of hardware extensions to Intel® processors and chipsets. This enhances the digital office platform with safety competencies such as calculated launch and protected execution. It enables an environment where applications can run within their own space, protected from all other software on the system.

This is exceptionally important to empower classified computing and privacy-preserving techniques so that organizations can benefit from data sharing without the data ever leaving their secure home, particularly critical in sectors such as healthcare. Data and analytics leaders who share data externally generate 3xmore measurable economic benefits than those who do not, Gartner's research recently found. Expediting collaboration with privacy-preserved computation such as Intel SGX directly supports this opportunity. Additionally, Intel® Crypto Acceleration reduces the performance impact of ubiquitous data encryption and increases the performance of encryption-intensive workloads, including SSL web serving, 5G infrastructure, and VPN/firewalls. What is especially appreciative is not only about the security advances but rather also the enablement of developers, reducing restrictions and supporting time to production and creativity. 

Built-In Workload and Service Acceleration

Intel Deep Learning Boost (Intel DL Boost) acceleration is built-in specifically for the flexibility to run complex AI workloads on the same hardware as your existing workloads.

  • With int8 – available on all 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI) enhance inference workloads by maximizing the use of computing resources, improving cache utilization, and reducing potential bandwidth bottlenecks.
  • With bfloat16 – available on select 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, the industry’s first x86 support of Brain Floating Point 16-bit (blfoat16)5 brings enhanced artificial intelligence inference and training performance with Intel Deep Learning Boost.
