Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) came up with a new generation Xeon Phi Processor that has been released this week. The technical details have now been disclosed to a small group of analyst-journalist at Hillsboro. They briefed about the chip known as “Knights Landing,” which will help in strengthening the basics and facilitating the new features required in the latest one. This definitely helps in accepting broader technicalities like databases, applications, learning, interaction design, power and etc.
Recently, the Marketing Director of Intel’s Technical Hugo Saleh, gave an interactive Q & A along with a demo explaining working of the Knights Landing on Intel System.
Why the Advancements?
Phi Processor incorporates x86 cores and works with the co processor. This make the system to run, compile all the code on its own, along with the booting process. This has totally taken start process to better and advanced level. This does not require recompilation at all. A standard system comes with things like CPU (Central Processing Unit), Memory and a Server Board. That is all you require to run the Knight Landing because the new tech will directly boot and operate on the standard system.
This has been made possible due to designing, vector concepts, cache memory and mesh communication concepts. The processor is higher in speed and works fast; matching all the input output speeds and data communication.
What Intel did not specify?
Even though the Next-Gen Xeon Phi processor proves to be a stringent challenge for NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA)’s GPUs, but it still fails to disclose a few vital issues during the unveiling of new tech. Intel is indeed providing the device-level details of this new technology, but the specifics regarding issues like the users Next-Gen Xeon Phi processor targets, applications as well as business problems have not been released as of now.
