More punch for Intel's new 22-core server processor

22 Nov, 2016 09:00 am

Intel says its Xeon E5-2699A v4 chip architecture offers more computing power for servers as the chipmaker seeks to keep its majority market share in the processor market.

Intel says the 22-core processor offers a 5% clock speed increase, which translates into a 20% improvement in computing performance with servers with four processors.

Intel and its rivals are also looking ahead to offer high-performance CPUs for extra computationally intensive applications. These include Intel's 72-core Xeon Phi CPU, code-named Knights Landing, that it is developing for artificial intelligence applications.

Meanwhile, the world's fastest super computer developed in China uses Chinese-sourced CPUs from government-funded research institutions. Fujitsu is designing what it says will at least be one of the world's fastest supercomputers with ARM processors.
