At the recent ISC International Supercomputing Conference,IntelFurther details of the Xe GPU for accelerated computing were revealed. Ahmad Ali, a user from Weibo, exposed Intel's PPT at ISC19, and introduced the unique features of the Xe accelerator card.
The first is the 7nm process. Intel announced last month that it will introduce the 7nm process in 2021. The first is the Xe high-performance GPU chip instead of the CPU chip.
Secondly, Xe acceleration chips will also use 2D EMIB and 3D Foveros packaging technology, both of which are Intel's most advanced packaging technologies, allowing small chips of different processes and different architectures to be packaged into one processor, which also means The chips in the Xe GPU are not all 7nm process, there may be 14nm or 10nm process, and now we can't determine the architecture inside.
Finally, Intel’s reason for Xe to accelerate the GPU chip’s 7nm process is because of the 2021 Aurora supercomputer, which is one of the billions of super-calculations planned by the US Department of Energy. Intel is also responsible for providing CPU and GPU acceleration chip.
Of course, all of the above are Xe for the high-performance computing market. The consumer-grade Xe graphics card was released in 2020. It is impossible to use the 7nm process. The officially said 10nm process, but so far this will not happen. It is a fixed number, and it may even be that Intel is looking for a foundry at another fab.
For the 7nm process after 10nm and later, Intel will continue to optimize each new generation process like the current 14nm. In the next year, 10nm+, 10nm++ will appear in succession; 7nm will appear in 2021, and in 2022 and 2023, 7nm+ will be continuously introduced. , 7nm++.
