Intel Launches 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable Processors
Intel launched its most advanced, highest-performance data center platform optimized to power the industry’s broadest range of workloads — from the cloud to the network to the intelligent edge.
New 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (code-named “Ice Lake”) are the foundation of Intel’s data center platform, enabling customers to capitalize on some of the most significant business opportunities today by leveraging the power of AI.
New 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors deliver a significant performance increase compared with the prior generation, with an average 46% improvement on popular data center workloads.
The processors also add new and enhanced platform capabilities including Intel SGX for built-in security, and Intel Crypto Acceleration, and Intel DL Boost for AI acceleration. These new capabilities, combined with Intel’s broad portfolio of Intel® Select Solutions and Intel® Market-Ready Solutions, enable customers to accelerate deployments across cloud, AI, enterprise, HPC, networking, security, and edge applications.
“Our 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable platform is the most flexible and performant in our history, designed to handle the diversity of workloads from the cloud to the network to the edge,” said Navin Shenoy, executive vice president and general manager of the Data Platforms Group at Intel. “Intel is uniquely positioned with the architecture, design and manufacturing to deliver the breadth of intelligent silicon and solutions our customers demand.”
