Intel introduced a new line of microprocessor chips for enterprise servers and cloud infrastructures on Tuesday. The new family of scalable Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors accelerates performance, increases security and efficiency.
Intel announced that its new Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors (code name Skylake) are 1.65 times faster than their previous generations in common server tasks. This huge jump includes software enhancements specifically designed to accelerate tasks with Intel chips and will be confirmed by external experts. Generally, however, was expected a modest increase in performance, so this huge increase was a big surprise. “This represents the best of our 20-year history of data center innovation,” Lisa Spelman, vice president of Intel’s data center group, ahead of Tuesday’s presentation. “That’s huge. That’s a lot to continue to deliver on the performance beat rate to our customers.”
