Intel presented its new HPC roadmap at the international supercomputer conference in Hamburg. The highlights are the successors to Ponte Veccio in the form of the Rialto Bridge, the Sapphire Rapids and the Falcon Shores XPUs. Read more about this below.

Intel presented its plans for the enterprise segment at the international supercomputer conference in Hamburg. According to the latest roadmap, the company wants to achieve computing power in the zettabyte range by 2027. The next generation of graphics cards for data centers after the not yet released Ponte Vecchio models in the form of Rialto Bridge was also presented in more detail. Here, the company wants to use a newer manufacturing process and use a heavily revised architecture in which up to 160 CUs are to be installed.

The cards should be available in different expansion stages and be allowed to absorb up to 800 watts. They are said to offer up to 30% more power than Ponte Veccio and sampling is expected in mid-2023. The manufacturer has also released new information about the Falcon Shores XPUs. These compute tiles are designed to enable x86 cores, GPU cores, and memory in a variety of different configurations. This fusion of CPUs and GPUs should be available for purchase for the first time as early as 2024.

Intel has also published the first benchmarks for the upcoming Sapphire Rapid server chips. These are said to be the declared opponents of AMD’s Milan X processors and, above all, can score points with their built-in HBM 2 memory of up to 64 GiB. This should theoretically achieve three times the performance in memory-intensive applications compared to the in-house Ice Lake Xeon processors. In reality, however, the company admits that it is more like double the real performance.
