Intel said the company’s ecosystem support and customer adoption is expected to make the 2nd-Generation Intel Xeon Scalable the company’s fastest Intel Xeon processor ramp.

Intel’s data center solutions target server, network, storage, internet of things (IoT) applications and workstations. “Today’s announcements reflect Intel’s new data-centric strategy,” said Navin Shenoy, Intel executive vice president and general manager of the Data Center Group.

Intel’s new portfolio of data-centric solutions consists of 2nd-Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Intel Optane DC memory and storage solutions, and software and platform technologies.

Intel’s latest data center solutions target a wide range of use cases within cloud computing, network infrastructure and intelligent edge applications, and support high-growth workloads, including AI and 5G.
Intel brings new Xeon processors
Intel Optane DC persistent memory delivers up-to 36TB of system-level memory capacity when combined with traditional DRAM in an eight-socket system. This represents a 3-times increase in system memory capacity compared with the previous-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processor.

Intel launched the 56-core, 12 memory channel Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processor in order to deliver leadership socket-level performance and unprecedented DDR memory bandwidth in a wide variety of high-performance computing (HPC) workloads, AI applications and high-density infrastructure.

Intel also introduced new network-optimized Intel Xeon Scalable processors built in pact with communications service providers to deliver more subscriber capacity and reduce bottlenecks in network function virtualized (NFV) infrastructure.

Intel Xeon Scalable processors are enabling high-performance, efficient, scalable and agile 5G-ready networks.

Intel unveiled the Intel Xeon D-1600processor SoC designed for dense environments where power and space are limited, but per-core performance is essential. The next-generation SoC helps advance customers down the path to 5G and extend Intel’s solutions to the intelligent edge.

Intel introduced its 10nm FPGAs to enable transformative applications in edge computing, networking (5G/NFV) and data centers. The Intel Agilex FPGA family will offer customers application-specific optimization and customization to bring new levels of flexibility and agility to data-intensive infrastructure.

The 2nd-Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, the Intel Xeon D-1600 processor, Intel Optane DC persistent memory and Intel SSD D5-P4326 are all in general availability today.

The Intel Ethernet 800 Series adapter is sampling today, with production scheduled for 2019’s third quarter. The new Intel Agilex FPGA family of 10nm FPGAs will start sampling in the second half of 2019.

Intel expects systems with Intel Xeon Platinum 9200 processors to start shipping in the first half of 2019 and ramping in the second half of the year. Availability of the Intel Optane DC SSD D4800X will be disclosed at a later date.
