Competitive Performance Per Dollar Summary

The processor is binary-compatible with Intel® Xeon® processors, which allows it to run any x86 workload to optimize asset utilization across the data center. By contrast, special-purpose accelerators, like GPUs, often remain underutilized since applications are not always suitable or optimized for them. Standardizing on Intel® architecture means you can use a single programming model for your code, helping increase efficiency through a shared developer base and code reuse.

  • Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor 7250 exceeds a hosted NVIDIA* GPU solution by up to 9x in performance delivered per dollar – realize compelling value.

Product and Performance Information

1

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, go to www.intel.co.uk/performance.
