Intel Intros Xeon Scalable Processors

E-mail Print PDF

Intel launches Xeon Scalable-- a range of over 50 server processors (as spread in Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum ranges) and 7 chipsets based on the new Skylake SP core.

Intel Xeon Scalable Chipzilla claims the Scalable range provides a 1.65x performance boost over the previous Xeon generation, with the boost growing to 2.2x when used in deep learning and artificial intelligence applications. Such performance gains are the result of new cores and the new Intel Mesh Architecture, and are described by the company as the greatest in a decade.

For the interested, Mesh Architecture arranges cores, memory controllers and I/O interfaces in a 2D grid (such as 4x4, 4x6 or 6x6, according to core count). Such a design, Intel says, maximises performance and enables consistent, low latencies.

Gartner IT Spending

"Digital business is having a profound effect on the way business is done and how it is supported," Gartner remarks. "The impact of digital business is giving rise to new categories; for example, the convergence of "software plus services plus intellectual property." These next-generation offerings are fueled by business and technology platforms that will be the driver for new categories of spending. Industry-specific disruptive technologies include the Internet of Things (IoT) in manufacturing, blockchain in financial services (and other industries), and smart machines in retail. The focus is on how technology is disrupting and enabling business."

An AutoFramer to Automatically Frame People

E-mail Print PDF

1 Beyond announces the AutoFramer-- a PTZ camera able to detect the number and location of people in a room, before automatically framing them.

AutoframerDesigned for small or medium-sized rooms, the camera adjusts as the group size or location changes. It widens the frame with more people, and zooms in tightly with fewer. If someone gets up to write on the board, the camera pans, tilts and zooms accordingly to include the new position.

The AutoFramer also eliminates the empty space in the frame, improving the viewer experience. Meeting or event attendees do not need to manually adjust the camera or rely on presets, creating better video conferences, event recordings or virtual trainings.
