In our everyday lives, we rely on technology quite a bit, so it’s shocking when we realize that even with technology advancements happening so regularly, we often hardly notice them. Because of this, it’s even more difficult to keep up with the industry’s best advancements. At PSSC Labs, we find it imperative that we can keep abreast of the ever-changing technology landscape to determine what is really worthwhile and what is just marketing hype.
2021 is going to be an interesting year for the virtualization, HPC, AI and data center server spaces. We’ve outlined a few key technology advancements that will not only provide a step forward in the industry, but can actually deliver business value. This value is so often missed, but we believe it’s critical that companies adopt the best of the best technologies.
The CPU market started really shaping up in 2020. Despite being the year from our nightmares, industry leaders like Intel and AMD are pushing their technologies forward. At HPE Cast 2019, AMD revealed their 3rd Generation Zen 3 based EPYC CPUs codenamed ‘Milan’ and it excited computer nerds like us around the globe. Here we breakdown everything you need to know about these new releases to keep you at the top of your HPC and AI game.
Intel Ice Lake – CPU Family
Intel has been striving to build 10nm architecture processors for many years. In 2019, we saw the launch of the first Ice Lake laptops. But desktop 10nm chips still seemed quite distant, with Intel admitting that it has fallen years behind AMD in the race to ever smaller process technology and was considering skipping 10nm on desktop altogether.
With these technology advancements in mind, we’re beginning to build our new product line and it’s coming soon. We are looking forward to utilizing these new technologies and others as they come to market in an effort to help government, military, higher education and commercial organizations achieve their business and organizational goals. Keep an eye out for our new releases coming soon
