Features and Performance

Powerful Performance Meets Unmatched Value

The integrated architecture of the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor improves performance and lowers your costs by reducing bottlenecks and system complexity. The Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor delivers up to 490 GB/s of sustained memory bandwidth without the need for additional discrete memory cards, and 100 GB/s I/O without the added cost and power needed for two fabric adapters.

Supported by a comprehensive Intel roadmap, the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor is a future-ready solution that maximizes your return on investment by using open standards for code that is flexible, portable, and reusable.

Intel® Xeon® Processors or Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processor?

With Intel® Xeon® processors, workloads with parallel and serial components will achieve leading performance; however, for applications requiring high parallelism and vectorization, the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor is the right tool for the job. Applications that will see the greatest improvement will make extensive use of the 72 cores with ultra-wide vector capabilities Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512). Examples of segments with highly parallel applications include animation, energy, finance, life sciences, manufacturing, medical, public sector, weather, and more.
