Intel Announces 10nm produced on Xeon Phi accelerators




Intel Announces Xeon Phi processors for supercomputers that are manufactured on 10nm. The third generation of Xeon Phi will integrate a new version of the Omni-Path Architecture: a platform for optical interconnects that would be faster than InfiniBand.

During the Supercomputing Conference in the American city of New Orleans is the successor to Intel Xeon Phi the next-generation code-named Knights Landing disclosed . This sequel is called Knight Hill and must be produced in 10nm, while Knights Landing on 14nm produced Silvermont cores equipped.

When Knights Hill to appear is unknown, but it will in any case after Knights Landing, which appears in the second half of 2015. Knights Landing Intel announced earlier this year to . The Xeon Phi processors are accelerators for high performance computing.

Intel also announced that forthcoming Xeon Phi’s get support for Omni-Path Architecture. This is a platform for optical interconnects with speeds of 100Gbit / s and a switch latency 56 percent would be lower than that of the current InfiniBand communication lines.

The Omni-Path Architecture will use a 48poorts switch chip, the maximum at InfiniBand is 36. The use of optical cables to connect the processors and other components to connect supercomputers, leading to speedups and better scalability.
