The plans to create dedicated graphics cores and video cards to be based on do not disappear, but gain momentum - with architecture Growing to fit even the most modest home solutions and the world of servers and information centers
We know the names very well Radeon and also GeForce, Quadro andTesla Which have accompanied us for years in the parallel processing market - and now it is possible to add another name to this list, for the first time in years: Xe.
within Intel's impressive and impressive architecture conference We have received not only information about the general processing core of the new era, but also the official branding of all designated chipsets from the chip manufacturer that will arrive in stores from the beginning of 2020, as part of a new division led by Raja Kodori himself.
Technical details on products have not yet been received, naturally, but according to the slides it seems that Intel Plans the Xe A highly flexible architecture that will also be a substitute for the graphics core built into future processors after the Gen11 generation, which was also presented at the conference, for advanced gaming cards in the home market and for accelerating computing and artificial intelligence applications in the server farm and supercomputers of the future.
The philosophy of Intel In the field is creating a tool Development And unified programming that will meet all of the company's processing components, from general processing units through FPGAs and modules artificial intelligence (Nervana) and ending with GPUs - so that developers will have the opportunity to utilize all the puzzle components in the most efficient way available, which is not necessarily the case today when combining different processing units from different manufacturers based on separate programming languages and tools.
Is there a chance we will get a bigger and more significant detail at the CES show next month? Probably so, although there is no doubt that we have a long way to go before we can start debating between three manufacturers instead of just two when assembling the home system or choosing the new mobile system.
