Intel Xeon Scalable Processors are ready

This has reference to earlier updates on Intel Xeon processors which was announced last Apr 13, 2017 by Intel on its latest development. Now, they have brought some more updates and its announcement as in below. Please find the latest news from Intel all about Intel Xeon Platinum processor and Scalable Processors readiness.


India, 12 July 2017 – Intel India launched its new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, providing businesses with unparalleled performance to handle compute-hungry tasks including real-time analytics, virtualized infrastructure and high performance computing. 

If you are planning to invest in Data center or B2B or CRM related for huge memory then this is the best time to invest in huge core processors for huge memory, at Intel Xeon. This marks the greatest set of data center and network processor advancements in a decade.

Hope you are aware that Intel already sold more than 500,000 Xeon processor to its reputed customers. Today’s general availability announcement follows Intel’s largest data center Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and they comes with high performance computing, cloud and communication services provider customers. 

In India, leading stock exchange - National Stock Exchange, and cloud service provider NxtGen have been a part of this initiative, and are expected to benefit from a dramatic performance increase of 1.65X on average2 over previous generation technology.

News Highlights

  • Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors are uniquely architected for today’s evolving data center and network infrastructure – offering businesses the industry’s highest core and system-level performance averaging 1.65X higher performance over the prior generation. In growing workloads like AI, Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors deliver 2.2x performance over the prior generation.
  • Designed to support an expanding range of existing and emerging data center and network workloads including cloud computing5G-ready networkshigh-performance computing and artificial intelligence.
Intel’s new portfolio of data centre processors will provide businesses with the richest suite of platform feature innovations that deliver significant performance increases across key workloads. These include:
  • Artificial Intelligence: Delivers 2.2x higher deep learning training and inference3 compared to the previous generation, and 113x deep learning performance3 gains compared to a 3-year-old non-optimized server system when combined with software optimizations speeding delivery of AI-fueled services.
  • Networking: Delivers up to 2.5x increased IPSec forwarding rate22 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 machines13 (VMs) versus a 4-year-old system for rapid service deployment, server utilization, lower energy costs and space efficiency spurring enterprise data center modernization.
  • High Performance ComputingProvides up to a 2x FLOPs/clock improvement1 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 IOPS11 while reducing latency by up to 70 percent11 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.

Other than this, Intel also introduced Intel Select Solutions, a solutions brand aimed at simplifying and speeding the deployment of data center and network infrastructure. This is customized solution for the customers based on the requirement of the business module through Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor configurations to speed return on investment to the customers.

“As India Inc. increases its investment in technology, the country’s data center and network infrastructure will undergo a massive transformation. Emerging use cases in the financial, ITeS, healthcare, and academic sectors will necessitate agile networks that can interpret and implement decisions based on artificial intelligence, HPC, and in the near future, 5G”, said Prakash Mallya, Managing Director – Sales & Marketing Group, Intel India“Intel Xeon Scalable processors will address the increasingly complex and varied needs of the data center, enabling customers to deliver next-generation business and consumer experiences through unparalleled performance, security and agility.”
