Intel revealed another product line at the GigaOm Structure Conference, that integrates Xeon chips with adjustable field-programmable data array chips, in efforts to address the needs of cloud service providers and carriers improved performance.

The announcement was made by Diane Bryant, Intel data center group senior VP, at the GigaOm Structure gathering.

Bryant said that the product has been being developed for a year, and that the organization has collaborated with a few organizations on the project

We are engaged with many of the large cloud service providers as well as the telecommunications service providers, the carriers,” said Bryant, who declined to identify Intel’s partner companies for the project development part.

The Xeon 5 processors of Intel will be modified with FPGA, making it workable for the chips to change quickly in compliance to the application needs. Organizations that utilize a wide number of applications that are spread out over distinctive servers will profit incredibly from such adjustable processors.

The FPGA chip won’t be set close to the Xeon processor, a common method for utilizing accelerating chips, but instead will be connected to the Xeon to increase performance as the FPGA will likewise share available memory to the CPU.

By utilizing the new products, organizations may have the capacity to bring down their expense of operations. Performance could be increased by 10 times, and even up to 20 times.

“With these FPGA solutions, it’s truly dynamic,” Bryant said. “You can reprogram for a different program or a different algorithm on the fly.”

Bryant stated that Intel’s development of this product is persuaded by the competition that the organization is facing for its chips as server vendors that utilize low-power ARM chips.

“We will always have competition; we’re not naive to that,” said Bryant. “We are extremely paranoid about competition. We have invested heavily in adding product lines to make sure compute, storage and networking workloads run well on Intel.”

This new product offering will help Intel set itself as a vendor that can cater all the processor needs of large corporations. Microsoft has already been experimenting by utilizing Intel’s programmable chips to help power Bing web search engine.
