3RD GEN INTEL XEON SCALABLE PROCESSORS ARE…

Optimized for cloud, enterprise, HPC, network, security, and IoT workloads with 8 to 40 powerful cores and a wide range of frequency, feature, and power levels.

Along with having up to 40 CPU Cores, The Intel 3rd Generation Ice Lake CPUs come with eight (8) memory channels of DDR4-3200MHz memory for improved performance and balanced memory capacity over the 2nd Generation Cascade Lake CPUs.

Also new to the 3rd Generation CPUs is Brain floating-point format (bfloat16) which is a number encoding format occupying 16 bits representing a floating-point number. It is a more efficient numeric format for workloads which have high compute intensity but lower need for precision.

The Ice Lake processors also have a selection of CPUs with Speed Select Technology (SST). While SST was available on Cascade Lake, with Ice Lake, you will be able to dynamically adjust core count and power, as well as configuring the frequency.

ABOUT INTEL® XEON® SCALABLE PROCESSORS

The third generation of Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors delivers built-in AI acceleration capabilities and advanced security capabilities, so you can place workloads securely where they perform best – whether that’s in the cloud or the edge.

Based on decades of innovation and close partnerships with the world’s leading software providers, Intel 3rd Gen Xeon® Scalable processors are designed to handle the most common workloads. With a consistent, open Intel architecture you know and trust for years, 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors are optimized for a wide range of workload types and performance levels.

Performance Made Flexible

From the edge to the cloud, Intel’s Xeon® Scalable processors provide workload-optimized performance with built-in AI acceleration, creating a seamless performance foundation based on the Intel architecture.

Scalable, Flexible, Customizable

With platform innovations and hardware-enhanced virtualization across compute, network and storage, supported by new classes of memory, it makes it possible to deliver cost-efficient, flexible and scalable edge-to-cloud experiences for both enterprise and consumer applications consistently.

Advanced Security Technologies

A design that enhances data protection. The hardware-enhanced security of Intel helps maintain workload integrity and performance while thwarting malicious exploits. To provide trusted data service delivery in transit, at rest, and at rest, encryption should be optimized.

OUTSTANDING GEN-ON-GEN PERFORMANCE

Based on a balanced, efficient architecture, the new 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processors deliver faster core performance, memory, and I/O bandwidth to accelerate diverse workloads from the data center to the intelligent edge.

  • Integrated workload acceleration features include Intel Deep Learning Boost, Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512, and Intel Speed Select.
  • Up to 40 powerful cores are available.

Additional Features

AVAILABLE MULTI-SOCKET SCALE TO PROPEL INSIGHTS

Some of Intel’s new Xeon Scalable processors support four- and eight-socket configurations with up to 28 cores, which can enhance performance, throughput, and CPU frequencies over previous generations.

  • In an eight-socket configuration, Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors offer up to 224 cores per platform based on four-to-eight-socket architecture.
  • With up to six Intel UltraPath Interconnect (Intel UPI) channels, platform scalability is increased and inter-CPU bandwidth increases for I/O-intensive workloads, resulting in improved energy efficiency and throughput.

TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

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 use of compute 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.

SPEED SELECT TECHNOLOGY

Is a powerful collection of capabilities giving you fine-grain control over CPU performance that can help to optimize total cost of ownership. With Intel SST, one server can do more. Lots more.

  • 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors offer enhanced Intel SST capabilities, featuring Intel SST – Base Frequency (Intel SST-BF), Intel SST – Core Power (Intel SST-CP), and Intel SST – Turbo Frequency (Intel SST-TF) capabilities across most Intel® Xeon® Platinum and Gold processors.
  • 3rd Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Y SKUs, support the new Intel SST – Performance Profile 2.0 (Intel SST-PP), with additional core count, frequency, profile, and power configuration opportunities.
