Intel Destroying Nvidia’s Artificial Intelligence Lead?

Diane Bryant, head of Intel’s (NASDAQ:INTC) datacenter group, said at Computex in Taipei that the company’s Knights Landing (“KNL”) processors could be the perfect fit for AI (artificial intelligence) in terms of running ML (machine learning) or DL (deep learning) workloads. KNL represents Intel’s second generation (x200) Xeon Phi family. According to Bryant, since the latest Xeon Phi coprocessors feature up to 72 cores, and each core has 2 Intel AVX-512 SIMD processing units for delivering improved per-core floating-point performance, these processors are ideal for running ML/DL workloads. However, it remains to be seen if these processors can surpass Nvidia’s (NASDAQ:NVDA) new Tesla P100 GPU accelerators, which are currently considered the best fit for ML/DL.
