Intel has announced that the world-record performance of the Intel Xeon Scalable processors is now available for next-generation expert workstations to enable photorealistic design, modelling, artificial intelligence (AI), analytics and virtual-reality (VR) content creation.
Immersive 3D VR media is a big trend today, and professional workstations are a key component to the creation of this content. Rendering immersive media is a time-consuming process that demands the highest performance workstations.
Beyond VR, many organisations are taking advantage of workstations to accelerate creation and innovation. From faster time to market with computer-aided design tools and creating ultrahigh-definition (HD) and 3D content, to improving medical care and driving faster financial trades and AI analytics, workstations give professionals a powerful productivity tool.
Launched in July 2017, Intel Xeon Scalable processors deliver breakthrough dual-socket performance for the most advanced workstation professionals, offering up to 56 cores, up to 112 threads and an Intel Turbo Boost Technology frequency up to 4.2 GHz.
Expert workstations will experience up to a 2.71x boost in performance compared to a four-year-old system and up to 1,65-tiems higher performance compared to the previous generation.
Intel has also unveiled the new Intel Xeon W processors, targeting mainstream workstations.
The Intel Xeon W processor delivers optimised performance1 for traditional workstation professionals by combining mainstream performance, enhanced memory capabilities, and hardware-enhanced security and reliability features.
The single-socket Intel Xeon W processor delivers mainstream performance optimized1 for the needs of traditional workstation professionals. The Intel Xeon W processor features up to 18 cores and up to 36 threads, with an Intel Turbo Boost Technology frequency up to 4.5 GHz.
Mainstream workstations will experience up to a 1.87x boost in performance compared to a four-year-old system and up to 1.38x higher performance compared to the previous generation.
