Today, Intel announced new products and collaborations to help the industry modernize today’s communications networks and build the foundation for 5G.
Penguin Computing today announced with Intel that the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) will install Penguin Computing’s Tundra™ Extreme Scale (ES) series, powered by Intel® Xeon® processors, to bolster computing for the NNSA’s mission of ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the nation’s nuclear stockpile. The systems are being procured under NNSA’s tri-laboratory Commodity Technology Systems program, or CTS-1, as part of the NNSA’s Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASC) program and will serve Los Alamos, Sandia and Lawrence Livermore national laboratories.
Intel today introduced the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 v5 product family for entry-level workstations – a powerful processing and graphics platform for designers, engineers, scientists and animators to develop more quickly their complex product designs and research. Based on Intel’s 14nm Skylake architecture, the product family delivers up to 27 percent higher compute and graphics performance compared to the previous generation Intel Xeon processor E3-1200 v3 product family. The processors feature 4 cores, ranging in frequency from 2.0 GHz to 3.7 GHz, and have an integrated Intel® HD Graphics P530 graphics solution with certification from the leading workstation software vendors.
Today at re:Invent , Amazon Web Services (AWS) announced new Amazon EC2 X1 instances , which will feature up to 2 TB of memory, a full order of magnitude larger than the current generation of AWS high-memory instances. Demonstrating the importance of obtaining the highest performance available, AWS selected the 4 socket Intel® Xeon® Processor E7-8880 v3 (Haswell) to power the new instances.
Today at AzureCon , Microsoft* announced availability of DV2, the next-generation of D-series virtual machines sizes. DV2 instances are powered by customized 2.4 GHz Intel® Xeon® E5 v3 processors , and with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 they can go to 3.2 GHz, making DV2 up to 35 percent faster than the current D-series instances. DV2 and D-series instances are ideal for enterprise-grade applications that demand faster CPUs, better local disk performance or higher memories.
