Intel on Friday released new “Xeon E-2100” 6-core processor for entry-level workstations to ensure powerful performance.

Intel “Xeon E” processor is successor to Intel “Xeon E3” processor.

“The release of the Intel ‘Xeon E’ processor is intended to deliver the essential performance and visuals for entry workstations as well as optimising innovative form factors, designs and diverse requirements of our customers,” said Jennifer Huffstetler, Vice President and General Manager, Data Center Product Management, Intel Corp.

The new chip is architected and crafted for the demands of creative professionals.

Compared with its predecessor, the new processor offers higher max turbo frequency, faster DRAM speeds, enhanced I/O, and advanced security and reliability features.

These processors are available with Intel UHD graphics supported by a broad set of workstation applications.

The processor offers Error Correcting Code (ECC) memory — a key feature to maximise data integrity and improve system stability.

Intel is betting on Artificial Intelligence (AI) to drive demand for its electronic chips, for which it is aiming to train 15,000 scientists, developers, engineers and students on AI in India over the next one year.

The company will host 60 courses under its ‘AI Developer Education Program’. These will train people on ways they can adopt AI for better research, testing or even building of products. Intel is looking at India due to the country’s large base of technical talent. The country is the third largest global site for AI companies.

“As India undergoes rapid digital transformation, data centres and the intelligence behind the data collected will enable the government and industry to make effective decisions based on algorithms. This means increasing opportunities for using AI in the country,” said Prakash Mallya, managing director at Intel for South Asia.

The enterprise solutions major has integrated SAP CoPilot with the "SAP S/4HANA" Cloud.

He says adoption of AI in developing countries would be much faster than in developed nations, as the magnitude of change it will bring will be far larger. Intel wishes to involve the government, academia and hospitals, too.

Research on AI and Machine Learning is already on at all Indian Institutes of Technologies (IITs), the Indian Institute of Science and some private universities. The company is keen to partner with these institutions, to drive adoption of its services and to get the next generation of scientists and technologists trained for using its products and services.

“Our research groups are currently working on implementation of evolutionary algorithms in parallel environments, and using Intel based platforms and software tools to deploy, parallelise and optimise systems,” said Pushpak Bhattacharya, Director at IIT, Patna. Intel says by 2020, AI would contribute to the biggest workload in data centres, as analysis of data becomes ever more important for businesses, governments and academia. Its products reflect this change, becoming more capable in handling tasks on machine learning, computer vision and the like.
