The Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor is a true evolution in design and architecture that delivers the performance of an accelerator with the benefits of a server-class processor for your most demanding tasks. Unlock deeper insights to solve your complex data challenges faster.
Designed from the ground up to eliminate bottlenecks, the Intel Xeon Phi processor is the Intel’s first bootable host processor specifically designed for highly parallel workloads, and the first to integrate both memory and fabric technologies.
Featuring up to 72 powerful and efficient cores with ultra-wide vector capabilities (Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions or AVX-512), the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor raises the bar for highly parallel computing. With no dependency on the PCIe* bus, the versatile processor is capable of handling a wide variety of workloads and configurations that are not supported by accelerators.
Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor 7250 outperforms a hosted NVIDIA* GPU solution by up to 5x in performance—get to results faster.
The higher degree of parallelism in the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor results in greater compute per unit of energy consumed for highly-parallel applications. Integration of 16 GB of high-bandwidth memory delivers up to 490 GB/s of sustained memory bandwidth for memory-bound workloads, and the available dual-port Intel® Omni-Path Fabric further reduces solution cost, power and space utilization.
Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor 7250 outdoes a hosted NVIDIA* GPU solution by up to 8x in performance delivered per watt – lower energy costs.
The processor is binary-compatible with Intel® Xeon® processors, which allows it to run any x86 workload to optimize asset utilization across the data center. By contrast, special-purpose accelerators, like GPUs, often remain underutilized since applications are not always suitable or optimized for them. Standardizing on Intel® architecture means you can use a single programming model for your code, helping increase efficiency through a shared developer base and code reuse.
Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor 7250 exceeds a hosted NVIDIA* GPU solution by up to 9x in performance delivered per dollar – realize compelling value.
