The Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor is a true evolution in design and architecture that delivers the performance of an accelerator with the benefits of a server-class processor for your most demanding tasks. Unlock deeper insights to solve your complex data challenges faster.
Designed from the ground up to eliminate bottlenecks, the Intel Xeon Phi processor is the Intel’s first bootable host processor specifically designed for highly parallel workloads, and the first to integrate both memory and fabric technologies.
Featuring up to 72 powerful and efficient cores with ultra-wide vector capabilities (Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions or AVX-512), the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor raises the bar for highly parallel computing. With no dependency on the PCIe* bus, the versatile processor is capable of handling a wide variety of workloads and configurations that are not supported by accelerators.
Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor 7250 outperforms a hosted NVIDIA* GPU solution by up to 5x in performance—get to results faster.
The higher degree of parallelism in the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor results in greater compute per unit of energy consumed for highly-parallel applications. Integration of 16 GB of high-bandwidth memory delivers up to 490 GB/s of sustained memory bandwidth for memory-bound workloads, and the available dual-port Intel® Omni-Path Fabric further reduces solution cost, power and space utilization.
Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor 7250 outdoes a hosted NVIDIA* GPU solution by up to 8x in performance delivered per watt – lower energy costs.
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.
Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.
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.

Intel® technologies’ features and benefits depend on system configuration and may require enabled hardware, software, or service activation. No computer system can be absolutely secure. Learn more at Intel.com or from the OEM or retailer.
Intel® processors of the same SKU may vary in frequency or power as a result of natural variability in the production process.
Cost reduction scenarios described are intended as examples of how a given Intel®-based product, in the specified circumstances and configurations, may affect future costs and provide cost savings. Circumstances will vary. Intel does not guarantee any costs or cost reduction.
Intel does not control or audit the design or implementation of third party benchmarks or websites referenced in this document. Intel encourages all of its customers to visit the referenced websites or others where similar performance benchmarks are reported and confirm whether the referenced benchmarks are accurate and reflect performance of systems available for purchase.
Features and benefits may require an enabled system and third party hardware, software or services. Performance varies depending up your specific configuration. Consult your system provider.
