Gordon Moore, the co-founder of Intel Corporation, predicted the future of computer processing power (CPU) by stating that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit would double every other year. That has certainly held true, and today, the industry is transitioning from the 3rd to the 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processor, which system integrators such as UNICOM Engineering are putting to use.
What are some features of the newest processor, and how is UNICOM Engineering leveraging the latest release?
On our newest episode of UNICOM Engineering’s Flawless Execution, Host Daniel Litwin speaks with Austin Hipes, Chief Technologist and VP Engineering at UNICOM Engineering, to discuss how this update will impact solution providers in the industry.
Among the highlights of the architecture, Litwin and Hipes also discuss:
- What differentiates the 3rd and 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors in terms of the memory architecture and express lanes?
- Where does UNICOM Engineering continue to elevate standards in conjunction with their clients using the 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable?
- How will the move from the PCI Express Gen 4 to 5 impact longevity and life cycles, and how does it connect to Intel Xeon’s scalable architecture?
Hipes goes on to detail the best use cases for the 4th Gen Intel Xeon processor. “Anything to do with networks and security. Those are huge focuses and features that will get into some of the acceleration available on the CPUs. Those are things that traditionally have chewed up a lot of CPU cores when you try to use them for general-purpose. So, a lot of effort has been put into accelerating those workloads without having to tax those general-purpose cores as much.”
Hipes has worked as a Field Application Engineer at Arrow Electronics and Wyle Electronics. He attended The University of Texas at Dallas and holds an Associate from Dell EMC in Information Storage and Management Version 3.0. Hipes has various specialties, including ATCA, Carrier Grade Rackmount Servers, Networking Technologies (wireless and wireline), and Intel Architecture platforms.
