Intel’s Xeon Phi can now tackle any multi-processing

72-processors ready for AIChipzilla has announced that its 72-processor Xeon Phi now boots as a stand-alone, rather than as a coprocessor and can carry out multiprocessing tasks. This means it can be used for artificial intelligence (AI) and deep brain learning. Intel claims the bootable Xeon Phi scales to any number of processors using Intel’s scalable-system framework (SSF) with integrated on-chip fabric, Omni-Path fiber and silicon photonics. Speed was bumped to 1.5-GHz for high-performance computing (HPC) orchestration while maintaining its low-power energy budget compared with GPU-based and other competing high-speed multicore arrays tied to PCIe. Intel is flogging the Xeon Phi is the world’s first CPU with integrated fabric in-package. Because it is now bootable by itself, has integrated in-package memory and can run on systems as small as developer workstations…
