Intel Brings A Big Fork To A Server CPU Knife Fight

With Intel’s foundry still trying to get caught up with the process and packaging offered by archrival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co, Intel’s server CPU product line has to “make do” with what the foundry has and create products that give the right mix of performance and price to compete with CPU rival AMD in the X86 space and the Arm collective that is creating a new CPU tier in the datacenter.

Nvidia’s Enormous Financial Success Becomes . . . Normal

For the past five years, since Nvidia acquired InfiniBand and Ethernet switch and network interface card supplier Mellanox, people have been wondering what the split is between compute and networking in the Nvidia datacenter business that has exploded in growth and now represents most of revenue for each quarter.

To Exascale And (Maybe) Beyond!

The difference between “high performance computing” in the general way that many thousands of organizations run traditional simulation and modeling applications and the kind of exascale computing that is only now becoming a little more commonplace is like the difference between a single, two door coupe that goes 65 miles per hour (most of the time) and a fleet of bullet trains that can each hold over 1,300 people and move at more than 300 miles per hour, connecting a country or a continent.

Greasing The Skids To Move AI From InfiniBand To Ethernet

Just about everybody, including Nvidia, thinks that in the long run, most people running most AI training and inference workloads at any appreciable scale – hundreds to millions of datacenter devices – will want a cheaper alternative for networking AI accelerators than InfiniBand.
