Officially announced at Intel’s AI Everywhere event in New York City in December, Intel’s 5th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors code-named Emerald Rapids are the second Xeon family upgrade in less than a year. The data center processors are built for AI including advancements in AI and overall performance, sustainability and advanced security features:
Compared with the previous generation of Xeon, these processors deliver 21% average performance gain for general compute performance and enable 36% higher average performance per watt across a range of customer workloads. Customers following a typical five-year refresh cycle and upgrading from even older generations can reduce their TCO by up to 77%.
The 5th Gen Xeon processors increase performance per watt and lower total cost of ownership across critical workloads for areas such as artificial intelligence, high performance computing, networking, storage, database and security for Intel customers and partners:
5th Gen Xeon processors support up to 64 cores per CPU and nearly 3x the maximum last-level cache from the previous generation. They offer eight channels of DDR5 per CPU, support DDR5 at up to 5,600 megatransfers per second (MT/s), and increase inter-socket bandwidth with Intel UPI 2.0, offering up to 20 gigatransfers per second (GT/s). Select 5th Gen Xeon processor-based instances will support CXL Type 3 workflows through leading cloud service providers (CSPs).
