Key Advantages of 4th Gen Intel Xeon Processors
Let’s take a closer look at some key features of the new 4th Gen Intel Xeon processors and the advantages they offer.
Leading AI Performance
Unleash the full potential of the data center to support your increasing AI workloads. 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors feature built-in Intel® Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX) to accelerate inference and training. You get up to 10x higher PyTorch real-time inference and training performance with built-in Intel AMX (BF16) vs. the prior generation (FP32).
Speed Data Flow
With Intel QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT), 4th Gen Xeon processors are the highest-performance CPU that can compress and encrypt in a single data flow.
- Up to 47% fewer cores to achieve the same connections/second using integrated Intel QAT vs. the prior generation on NGINX key handshake.
- Up to 95% fewer cores and 2x higher level 1 compression throughput using integrated Intel QAT vs. the prior generation.
Help Protect Data
Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) is the most researched, updated, and deployed confidential computing technology in data centers on the market today, with the smallest trust boundary.
Get Better Performance from Software
Many of the software applications that the business world cares most about are optimized to take advantage of the performance features available with 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors. Intel’s software engineers work with developers at leading software vendors and cloud service providers to optimize popular applications, like SAP HANA, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, VMware Cloud Foundation, and Red Hat OpenShift. Plus, Intel is a top contributor to the open-source community, especially when it comes to AI.
Improve compute performance by overcoming data bottlenecks with higher memory bandwidth. DDR5 offers up to 1.5x bandwidth improvement over DDR4, enabling opportunities to improve performance, capacity, power efficiency, and cost. 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors offer up to 4800 MT/s (1 DPC) or 4400 MT/s (2 DPC) with new DDR5.
PCI Express Gen 5 (PCIe 5.0)
Unlock new I/O speeds with opportunities to enable the highest possible throughput between the CPU and devices. 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors have up to 80 lanes of PCIe 5.0 – ideal for fast networking, high-bandwidth accelerators, and high-performance storage devices. PCIe 5.0 doubles the I/O bandwidth from PCIe 4.0, maintains backward compatibility, and provides foundational slots for Compute Express Link (CXL).
4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors are Intel’s most sustainable data center processors ever and have a range of features for managing power and performance.
