Intel shows Xeon E5 in supercomputer tech first

Intel chose the SC11 conference for an unusual preview of its next-generation mid-range workstation and server chip, the Xeon E5. The pre-release chip is now running ten of the supercomputers in the Top500 list and is estimated to be about 2.1 times more pure performance, and 70 percent in high demand workloads, than the Xeon 5600 it replaces. It will also be the first Xeon to support PCI Express 3.0, which doubles the bandwidth and is useful for very high bandwidth connections to the Internet, cluster computers, and high-demand local peripherals like video cards.

Components to be built using 22nm process

Intel has disclosed additional details surrounding its upcoming Knights Corner processor, a 50-core chip first previewed early last year. The CPU will be the first to be produced using the company's Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture, which takes advantage of x86-based Xeon cores and 22nm construction. The technology is claimed to offer a significant jump in performance scalability compared to current offerings.

Intel Knights Corner targets highly parallel PCs

Intel held a surprise in store today as it unveiled its first plans for a production many-core processor. Codenamed Knights Corner, the 22 nanometer chip would use a new, x86-based Many Integrated Core (MIC) architecture that would allow for many small processors working together on very parallel tasks. Over 50 cores should fit on a single chip once the technology is advanced, Intel said.
