Intel has been exporting 3D Xpoint for almost a year now, in the form of solid state drives (SSDs) labeled as Optane. This Optane serve as speedier storage for a device in comparison to a rotating magnetic disk drive. The commitment, claimed by Micron and Intel back in 2015, was always for Xpoint to turn into a faster storage medium someday. In addition, the promise but also indicated that Xpoint will become a form of “main memory” for devices, maybe even substituting DRAM processors.
That objective is still very much the aim at Intel. The company’s aim is the next phase of these things, where the Xpoint processors will link to the device not via the PCIe socket, where SSDs and disks typically link, but via the “memory bus.” This is the same way as to how DRAM links to the microchips.
On a similar note, Intel is all set to assist India attain high-performance computing maintained by the requirements from industries such as banking, e-commerce, government, telecom, and other enterprises to scale and store up Big Data.
As per General Manager and Vice President for Data Center Marketing and Intel Xeon Processors at Intel, Lisa Spelman, the scale and sheer size of the country has always attracted her. The firm with its new-generation processor series is bullish on its prospect in the nation when it comes to controlling huge sets of information.
“The government has done an extraordinary amount of talks in the region of high-performance computing. There is a community of skilled developers in the country. Intel is geared up to assist the nation gain its high-computing aims when it comes to managing Big Data all over the spectrum,” Spelman claimed to the media.
Intel posted a record income of $14.8 Billion. The growth was seen in data-centric businesses (that was increased by 16%) and client computing (that was increased by 12%).
