Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors
Colfax announces broad availability of systems based on the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable
processors, codenamed Skylake SP. This new addition to Colfax’s portfolio of server
and workstation products seamlessly supports recent innovations in storage, networking
and heterogeneous computing.
- Performance improvement: Colfax’s new computing solutions feature
up to 28 Intel cores per socket and come with 2- 4- and 8-socket boards. Connected
with the new Intel UPI and featuring an improved memory organization, new Intel®
Xeon® Scalable processors achieve 45% and 50% greater bandwidth to remote and local
memory, respectively, compared to the previous generation. Memory footprint up tp
1.5 TB/socket is now supported. The Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor cores feature
the new Intel® AVX-512 instruction set, support higher clock frequencies in select
CPU models and contain numerous architectural improvements.
- Storage technology: Colfax’s offerings will be enhanced with performance-boosting
Intel® solid-state drives (SSDs), including the drives with the new Intel® Optane™
- High-performance networking: The new servers offered by Colfax
feature optional integrated Intel® Omni-Path Fabric 100, which offers the same 100
Gbps bandwidth and sub-microsecond latency for high-performance networking as its
discrete card implementation, only at a lower cost, lower power consumption and
without the loss of PCIe lanes.
- Heterogeneous accelerated computing: For applications with the
greatest performance needs, Colfax’s new solution portfolio offers optional integrated,
discrete, or on-chip Intel® QuickAssist technology which accelerates cryptography,
public key and compression/decompression functions, freeing up the CPU for computation.
This technology is particularly useful for secure server multi-tenancy, encrypted
transfers, compressed storage facilitation and data analytics.
