December 15, 2023 – At today’s “AI Everywhere” event, Intel officially unveiled its brand-new Core Ultra Mobile Processor and the fifth-generation Xeon Scalable Processor.
In addition to these announcements, Intel’s CEO Pat Gelsinger also showcased the Intel Gaudi3 series AI accelerators designed for deep learning and large-scale artificial intelligence models. These accelerators are expected to hit the market next year.
Intel believes that the Intel Gaudi3 will capture a larger share of the market in 2024 due to its continually growing and verified performance advantages, as well as its highly competitive total cost of ownership and pricing advantages in the AI accelerator space.
Pat Gelsinger emphasized that AI represents the dawn of a new era, bringing tremendous opportunities. He noted that having more abundant, powerful, and cost-effective processing capabilities is a key component of future economic growth. He stated, “In the next 5 years, the number of connected devices will quadruple, and in the next 10 years, it will increase fifteenfold.”
Previously leaked information suggests that the Intel Gaudi 3 will utilize a 5nm manufacturing process, offering 1.5 times the bandwidth of its predecessor, the Gaudi 2 (which used a 7nm process). Its BF16 power will be four times greater, and its network compute power will be twice as potent as the Gaudi 2.
The Intel Gaudi 3 is expected to come equipped with up to 128GB of HBM3e memory, significantly boosting AI learning and training performance, putting it in direct competition with Nvidia’s H200 accelerator card.
