Intel has announced Data Center GPU Max GPU Accelerators.Previously known by the codename Ponte Vecchio, they are now officially part of the Intel Max series, which includes the previously announced Xeon Max Xeon Sapphire Rapids server processors with HBM2e chipset memory.Image source: IntelAt the SC22 event focused on server hardware and AI, Intel has shared the performance of its new products.The Intel Data Center GPU Max gas pedal includes 128 Xe cores and 128 RT cores, making it the only server gas pedals with native support for hardware ray tracing acceleration.The company also claims up to 64 Mbytes of L1 cache memory and up to 408 Mbytes of L2 cache memory for them. Intel Data Center GPU Max GPUs combine 100 million transistors comprising 47 chipsets built using different manufacturing processes (Intel 7, TSMC N5 and TSMC N7), which are interconnected via EMIB interfaces and Foveros packaging technology on a single substrate. Intel Data Center GPU Max Server Computing Accelerators will be available in different form factors designed for different tasks.The PCI Express expansion card solutions will come as part of the Max 1100 series and offer 300W TDP, 56 Xe cores, and 48GB of HBM2e memory.Max 1350 will be available as a 450W OAM-module, with a TDP of 112 Xe cores and 96GB of HBM2e memory.They will be equipped with 112 Xe cores and 96 GB of HBM2e memory.The most powerful solutions in the form of Max 1550 OAM-modules will have a TDP of 600 watts and get 128 Xe cores as well as 128 GB of HBM2e memory. The company notes that the Xe-HPC architecture of the new compute gas pedals allows up to eight OAM modules to be combined.Intel provided details on the following configurations:One OAM module: 128GB HBM2e, 128 Xe cores, 600W TDP, 52Tflops performance, 3.2TB/s memory bandwidth;Two OAM modules: 256GB HBM2e, 256 Xe cores, 1200W TDP, 104 Tflops performance, 6.4 Tbytes/s memory bandwidth;Four OAM modules: 512GB HBM2e, 512 Xe cores, 2400W TDP, 208Tflops performance, 12.8TB/s memory bandwidth.The manufacturer claims each OAM module is up to two times faster than a single NVIDIA A100 compute gas pedal in ExaSMR OpenMC and miniBUDE tasks.Performance in ExaSMR NekRS tasks at Data Center GPU Max is 1.5 times faster than the competitor. In Riskfuel, Intel Data Center GPU Max gas pedals provide 2.4 times better performance than the competitor's solution. Intel also reminded that the successor of Ponte Vecchio will be Rialto Bridge computing gas pedals.They got up to 160 Xe cores and a new OAM 2.0 form factor, which allows power consumption at 800W.
Intel announced work on Rialto Bridge, a 160 Xe-core computing gas pedal that will replace the Ponte Vecchio
Intel today unveiled a host of new products for high-performance computing and also lifted the veil on some future developments.In particular, it was announced that computing gas pedals called Rialto Bridge are in the pipeline to replace Intel Ponte Vecchio gas pedals as early as next year.Essentially, Rialto Bridge will be an improved version of Ponte Vecchio - the novelty will offer more Intel Xe graphics cores, more processing power, higher input-output bandwidth, be able to do more gigatransactions per second (GT/s) and offer other improvements.The next-generation gas pedals will also consist of multiple crystals, and some of them will inherit directly from their predecessors.So far, Intel has said that Rialto Bridge will get up to 160 Intel Xe cores, 25% more than the current Ponte Vecchio (128 cores).At the same time, it is not specified what kind of cores will be the same as in the current Intel GPU or new cores.Also, it is not reported what new items will have memory, but most likely a new HBM3.Also, it was said that the new items will be available in the form factor OAM v2.Current Ponte Vecchio gas pedals also use OAM form factor.The new version of the packaging will provide even more power to the chips.The slide also mentions that the new product will be made as part of the IDM 2.0 strategy.
