As one of the leading high performance cluster and workstation providers for government, we are excited to report that sales of HPC tech with Intel® 2nd Generation Xeon® Scalable Processors (Cascade Lake/CLX) are incredibly strong!
We have been integrating these CLX processors into HPC clusters and workstations since the products were introduced about six months ago. Our public and private sector clients can confirm that there is a significant performance boost over Intel’s previous generation Skylake processors.
In fact, there really is no comparison. These processors deliver higher performance, improved memory bandwidth, Intel Optane™ DC persistent memory and introduce Intel Deep Learning Boost featuring Vector Neural Network Instructions (VNNI). Performance enhancing features include:
- Intel Deep Learning Boost: This accelerates AI/deep learning/vision workloads up to 14X the inference throughput performance over previous generation processors.
- Intel Optane DC Persistent Memory: Speed workloads and time-to-insight for affordable, persistent and large memory.
- Intel QuickAssist Technology (Intel QAT) Integration: Data compression and cryptography acceleration frees the host processor and enhances data transport and protection across server, storage, network and VM migration. Intel QAT is integrated into the chipset.
- Intel Resource Director Technology for Determinism: Extend Quality of Service (QoS) with memory bandwidth allocation.
Our clients are using them successfully for applications such as AI and quantum-level computing. To find out more, visit our CLX page: Powerful HPC Technology with Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors or call us at: 888-LOVE-KOI (888) 568-3564.
