Intel To Release Low-power Server Chips


Intel on Monday said it is planning to launch a low-power version of its server processors, hoping to expand into the data center with energy efficient-chips.

Intel will will be offering a low-power version of its Xeon processor with built-in features including connectivity and memory These System-On Chips (SoCs) will be positioned to compete with the offerings by AMD, Applied Micro Circuits and other smaller rivals - chips based on low-power smartphone technology licensed from ARM Holdings.

Diane Bryant, senior vice president and general manager of the datacenter and connected systems group at Intel, said the new component, based on the upcoming 14-nanometer Broadwell version of Intel's Xeon high-performance chips, will launch next year.

The future products also includes the next generation of Intel Atom processor SoCs (codenamed "Denverton") that will enable even higher density deployments for datacenter operators. Intel also disclosed an addition to its future roadmap - a new SoC designed from the ground up for the datacenter based on Intel's next-generation Broadwell microarchitecture that follows today's Haswell microarchitecture. This SoC will offer higher levels of performance in high density, extreme energy efficient systems that datacenter operators will expect in this increasingly services-oriented, mobile world.



Bryant also highlighted Intel?s Rack Scale Architecture (RSA), an advanced design that promises to dramatically increase the utilization and flexibility of the datacenter to deliver new services. Rackspace Hosting, an open cloud company, today announced the deployment of new server racks that is a step toward reaching Intel?s RSA vision, powered by Intel Xeon processors and Intel Ethernet controllers with storage accelerated by Intel Solid State Drives. The Rackspace design is the first commercial rack scale implementation.

Jason Waxman, vice president and generation manager of the cloud platforms group at Intel, outlined how this will affect Intel's approach for supporting cloud infrastructures, which he said boils down to three key elements: workload-optimized, application-driven, and software-defined infrastructures.

Waxman unveiled Intel's next-generation rack architecture plan. Running on Atom and Xeon silicon, Intel's new rack scale scheme is based on an open network platform comprised of photonics and switch fabrics along with storage-PCIe-SSD support and caching.

Waxman also talked about the Atom Processor C2000 product family, codenamed "Avoton" and "Rangeley." he reiterated these second generation architectures are scalable up to eight cores with seven times higher performance and up to four times higher performance per watt.

This second generation of Intel's 64-bit SoCs is expected to become available later this year and will be based on the company's 22nm process technology and the Silvermont microarchitecture. It will feature up to eight cores with integrated Ethernet and support for up to 64GB of memory.

The new products are expected to deliver up to four times the energy efficiency and up to seven times more performance than the first generation Intel Atom processor-based server SoCs introduced in December last year.

The benefits are supposed to be up to 1.5 times density improvements, up to 2.5 times better network uplinks, up to six times better power provisioning, up to 25 times better network downlinks, and up to three times cable reduction.

Intel has been sampling the new Intel Atom processor server product family to its customers since April and says it has already more than doubled the number of system designs compared to the previous generation.



Data centers that combine many low-power chips instead of just a few powerful processors may provide more computing power for less money and use less electricity.
