Intel Xeon Scalable processors - new names and new models
Intel Xeon processors are
officially introduced with new names - Platinum
. Information about the upcoming "rebranding" appeared on the pages of information resources from the beginning of the year, and now the official announcement of the whole family - Intel Xeon Scalable
. Moreover, the family is very large - almost 60 models of all classes.
Xeon Scalable is notable for supporting some of the most advanced Intel technologies: Intel AVX-512
, Intel Mesh
, Intel QuickAssist
, Intel Optane SSD
, Intel Omni-Path Fabric
, which together gives a solid performance boost for almost all applications. Particularly significant progress has been made in the tasks of virtualization, high-performance computing and data storage. Another record is broken - the maximum cost of an Intel Xeon processor. Now it is $ 13,000 (for the Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M).
Under the cut - a comparative plate of the characteristics of the top models of different classes.
