We at Advanced Clustering are pleased to announce that we are developing solutions based on the next generation of Intel® Xeon® Processor called Skylake in our ACTserv servers and MicroHPC workstations. The new processors are expected to be available in mid-2017.
Skylake features Intel® Advanced Vector Extension 512 (AVX-512), integrated Intel® Omni-Path Architecture (Intel® OPA), integrated Intel® QuickAssist Technology (Intel® QAT), and Intel® Resource Directory Technology (Intel® RDT).
Intel® AVX-512 extensions can deliver up to 2x flops per clock-cycle peak performance capability increase (over AVX2), which is especially important for HPC, data analytics and security/cryptography workloads.
