Intel on Monday announced two new members in its Xeon processor portfolio, including the 48-core Cascade Lake advanced performance processor.

The Cascade Lake advanced performance chip is expected to be released in the first half of 2019 and the Intel “Xeon E-2100” processor for entry-level servers is now available, the company said in a statement.

“The new parts represent a substantial upgrade over current Xeon chips, with up to 48 cores and 12 DDR4 memory channels per socket, supporting up to two sockets,” said Intel.

The two products build upon Intel’s foundation of 20 years of Intel “Xeon” platform leadership and give customers even more flexibility to pick the right solution for their needs.

“We remain highly focused on delivering a wide range of workload-optimised solutions that best meet our customers’ system requirements.

“The addition of Cascade Lake advanced performance CPUs and Xeon E-2100 processors to our Intel Xeon processor lineup once again demonstrates our commitment to delivering performance-optimized solutions to a wide range of customers,” said Lisa Spelman, Intel Vice President and General Manager of Intel Xeon products and Data Center Marketing.

Cascade Lake advanced performance chip is designed for the most demanding high-performance computing (HPC), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) workloads.

The Xeon E-2100 processor is targeted at small- and medium-size businesses and cloud service providers.

“The processor supports workloads suitable for entry-level servers, but also has applicability across all computing segments requiring enhanced data protections for the most sensitive workloads,” said Intel. (IANS)

Intel to Train 15,000 people Under It’s ‘AI Developer Education Program’

The company says use of AI in sectors such as autonomous driving and the internet of things will create massive amounts of data.

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.

The company says use of AI in sectors such as autonomous driving and the internet of things will create massive amounts of data, which in turn will have to be analysed. Mallya says a million autonomous cars have the capacity to create half as much data as humanity creates as a whole today. (IANS)
