Intel launches 3rd Gen Intel Xeon scalable processors, memory, storage and FPGA solutions

What’s the skinny? Earlier today Intel launched its 3rd Gen Intel Xeon scalable processors, a server processor with built-in bfloat16 support and additions to its hardware and software portfolio. Intel states that these new processors are designed for AI inference, image classification, recommendation engines, speech recognition and language modeling.

“The ability to rapidly deploy AI and data analytics is essential for today’s businesses. We remain committed to enhancing built-in AI acceleration and software optimizations within the processor that powers the world’s data center 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, Xeon and Memory Group

Intel says their processors with the addition of bfloat16 support accelerates both AI training and inference performance in the CPU. The processor is designed for deep learning, virtual machine (VM) density, in-memory database, mission-critical applications and analytics-intensive workloads.

Availability

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.
