Intel has decided to surprise everyone with its new 48-core chip.
Perhaps this is part of such a theatrical diva, in which each brand plays some kind of its assigned role. One theme is addictive, the other catches it and in the end it turns out that it turns out. Architecture from Intel has improved markedly recently, although in some aspects it still bends before AMD. His new 48-core chip Intel apparently in the first place would like to surprise it AMD. Probably, if these two it monsters would not compete for the right to be the best, the rest of the world would have played on IBM in ancient toys. Competition spurs developers to work more actively and to create different Goodies, which in General and move progress.
I think that the chip with 48 cores on Board is something even for the world of high technology is something beyond. The processor belongs to the family Xeon Scalable and is called in a special way with the prefix Cascade Lake. Such chips are not developed for desktop computers, it is rather a topic for cloud services and some huge computing processors. But most of all, this chip is suitable for analytical systems of artificial intelligence, for building neural networks. AMD is almost ready to release the chip with the technical process 7nn, so it is possible that Intel so far responds to the ambitions of a competitor, but for a long time can not be, and when it is still and Intel will release its processor on the same technical process. As of now, Intel with similar architecture, so all is well and when AMD will release their chip technology 7 , in response, Intel will release two in one chip, that is going to try to squeeze in one housing two chips made by technology 14 . This has happened before, earlier rescued and now apparently bet on the same option. When in 2005, AMD entered the market with a dual-core solution for servers in the form of an Opteron X86 chip, while Intel responded with the Xeon DP "Paxville"chip as a temporary measure. By the way the new chips will be in addition to doubling the cores and have on Board a 12-channel memory controller DDR4. The first published tests showed that the 48-core processor performance steeper AMD Epyc 7601 almost 4 times, even in the test Stream Triad he behind 48 nuclear monster.
The essence of this hybrid concept is clearly seen in the desire of Intel to keep its market segment in 2019, and then it will be seen, perhaps this company will Mature 7nn technology. In open access data on the new chip yet, although it would have been possible to run and advertising, because the beginning of 2019 and not far off the official release. Can chip from Intel and powerful, but still power consumption it at times more of the presented option from AMD, and it is in large volumes of large data centers is very, very important parameter. Tasty showed that Linpack Cascade Lake consumes by 21% relative to AMD Xeon SP-8180M with 28 cores. Here are some interesting news from two monsters of the CPU competition.
