Intel has introduced an unmatched portfolio of AI products to enable customers’ AI solutions everywhere, across the data center, cloud, network, edge and PC.
“AI innovation is poised to raise the digital economy’s impact up to as much as one-third of global gross domestic product,” Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger said. “Intel is developing the technologies and solutions that empower customers to seamlessly integrate and effectively run AI in all their applications – in the cloud and, increasingly, locally at the PC and edge, where data is generated and used.”
Intel’s expansive AI footprint
At its AI Everywhere launch in New York, Gelsinger showcased Intel’s expansive AI footprint, spanning cloud and enterprise servers to networks, volume clients and ubiquitous edge environments. He also reinforced that Intel is on track to deliver five new process technology nodes in four years.
“Intel is on a mission to bring AI everywhere through exceptionally engineered platforms, secure solutions and support for open ecosystems,” Gelsinger said. “Our AI portfolio gets even stronger with today’s launch of Intel Core Ultra ushering in the age of the AI PC and AI-accelerated 5th Gen Xeon for the enterprise.”
Intel Core Ultra represents the company’s largest architectural shift in 40 years and launches the AI PC generation with innovation on all fronts: CPU compute, graphics, power, battery life and profound new AI features. Representing the largest transformation of the PC experience in 20 years, Intel Core Ultra features Intel’s first client on-chip AI accelerator – the neural processing unit, or NPU – to enable a new level of power-efficient AI acceleration with 2.5x better power efficiency than the previous generation.
Intel is partnering with more than 100 software vendors to bring several hundred AI-boosted applications to the PC market. For consumer and commercial customers, this means a larger and more extensive set of AI-enhanced applications will run great on Intel Core Ultra, particularly compared to competing platforms.
New Xeon brings more powerful AI to the data centre, cloud, network and edge
Intel’s 5th Gen Xeon processor family, also introduced at the company’s AI Everywhere event, brings a significant leap in performance and efficiency: Compared with the previous generation of Xeon, these processors deliver 21% average performance gain for general compute performance and enable 36% higher average performance per watt across a range of customer workloads.
Xeon is the only mainstream data centre processor with built-in AI acceleration, with the new 5th Gen Xeon delivering up to 42% higher inference and fine-tuning on models as large as 20 billion parameters. It’s also the only CPU with a consistent and ever-improving set of MLPerf training and inference benchmark results.
Xeon’s built-in AI accelerators, together with optimized software and enhanced telemetry capabilities, enable more manageable and efficient deployments of demanding network and edge workloads for communication service providers, content delivery networks and broad vertical markets, including retail, healthcare and manufacturing.
As part of the event, IBM announced that 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors achieved up to 2.7x better query throughput on its watsonx.data platform compared to previous-generation Xeon processors during testing 10. Google Cloud, which will deploy 5th Gen Xeon next year, noted that Palo Alto Networks experienced a 2x performance boost in its threat detection deep learning models by using built-in acceleration in 4th Gen Xeon through Google Cloud.
This kind of performance unlocks new possibilities for advanced AI – not only in the data center and cloud, but across the world’s networks and edge applications.
