Intel Xeon Processors Introduced

4th Gen CPUs And GPUs

With the release of its 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors (code-named Sapphire Rapids), Intel Xeon CPU Max Series (code-named Sapphire Rapids HBM) and Intel Data Center GPU Max Series (code-named Ponte Vecchio), Intel made one of its most significant product launches in company history. These products will give the existing Intel customers a boost in data centre performance, efficiency, security and new capabilities for artificial intelligence, the cloud and the most powerful supercomputers in the world.


The Innovation

The introduction of the Max Series product family and the 4th Gen Xeon Scalable CPUs marks a crucial turning point in Intel’s comeback. Customers may get the leadership performance and dependability they need in a secure environment for their practical needs thanks to Intel’s 4th Gen Xeon and the Max Series product line, which also accelerates time to value and accelerates innovation, being much more versatile than the previous versions of Intel’s Xeon range. The 4th Gen Xeon series significantly improves on Intel’s purpose-built, workload-first strategy and approach, unlike any other data centre processor currently on the market or in customers’ hands.


New 4th Gen Xeon processors deliver industry-leading performance with the most built-in accelerators of any CPU in the world to address customers’ most important computing challenges across AI, analytics, networking, security, storage, and HPC. When using built-in accelerators, 4th Gen Intel Xeon customers can anticipate an increase in performance per watt efficiency of 2.9x for specified workloads, up to 70-watt power savings per CPU in optimal power mode with minimum performance loss and a reduction in power consumption of 52% to 66%.


Because the built-in accelerators in the 4th Gen Xeon are so extensive, Intel is able to save power at the platform level, reducing the demand for extra discrete acceleration and assisting our customers in achieving their sustainability objectives. Additionally, for specific workloads, the new Optimized Power Mode can provide up to 20% socket power savings with less than a 5% performance effect. In addition, the 4th Gen Xeon was constructed at Intel sites with cutting-edge water reclamation facilities using 90% or more renewable electricity, which substantially reduces the overall energy usage of data centres.

In Accordance With Artificial Intelligence

With integrated Intel Advanced Matrix Extension accelerators, 4th Gen Xeon processors deliver PyTorch real-time inference and training performance that is up to 10x greater. New levels of performance for inference and training across a broad range of AI tasks are unlocked by Intel’s 4th Gen Xeon. With up to a 20x speedup on big language models, the Xeon CPU Max Series extends these strengths for natural language processing. Developers can use their preferred AI tool while working more productively and developing AI faster, thanks to Intel’s AI software package.

Networking And Computing

For high-performance, low-latency network and edge tasks, the 4th Gen Xeon series of CPUs are designed specifically. These processors are a crucial component of the architecture, enabling a future that is more software-defined across a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, retail, telecommunications and smart cities. Built-in accelerators allow 5G core applications to achieve higher throughput and lower latency, and improvements in power management improve the platform’s responsiveness and economy.

The Xeon CPU Max Series is the first and only x86-based processor with high bandwidth, enabling it to accelerate numerous HPC tasks without requiring code modifications. The highest-density Intel CPU, the Data Center GPU Max Series, will be offered in a variety of form factors to suit various customer requirements. High bandwidth memory (HBM2e) of 64 gigabytes is available on the Xeon CPU Max Series package, greatly enhancing data throughput for HPC and AI workloads. The Xeon CPU Max Series offers up to 3.7 times greater performance on a variety of real-world applications, including energy and earth system modelling, when compared to the top-end 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs.

Why Is It Needed?

With the help of the 4th Gen Xeon processors, Intel is bringing unique systems and solutions at scale to its customers’ and partners’ toughest computing problems. Due to Intel’s distinctive strategy of offering acceleration specifically designed to accelerate particular workloads and highly optimised software geared for particular workloads, the business is able to give the ideal performance at the ideal power for the best possible total cost of ownership.
