Intel just launched the Intel® Stratix® 10 MX FPGA, the industry’s
first field programmable gate array (FPGA) with integrated High
Bandwidth Memory DRAM (HBM2).
By coordinating the FPGA and the HBM2, Intel Stratix 10 MX FPGAs
present to 10 times the memory data transfer capacity when contrasted
and independent DDR memory solutions1. These transmission capacity
abilities make Intel Stratix 10 MX FPGAs the fundamental multi-work
quickening agents for superior registering (HPC), server farms, organize
capacities virtualization (NFV), and communication applications that
require equipment quickening agents to accelerate mass information
developments and stream information pipeline systems.
Relies on HBM2, this industry’s first FPGA can pack and quicken
bigger information developments contrasted and remain solitary FPGAs.
With High-Performance Data Analytics (HPDA) situations, spilling
information pipeline systems like Apache* Kafka and Apache* Spark
Streaming require continuous equipment speeding up. Intel Stratix 10 MX
FPGAs can all the while read/compose information and encode/unscramble
information progressively without troubling the host CPU processor.
Reynette Au, vice president of marketing, Intel Programmable
Solutions Group said, “To efficiently accelerate these workloads, memory
bandwidth needs to keep pace with the explosion in data. We designed
the Intel Stratix 10 MX family to provide a new class of FPGA-based
multi-function data accelerators for HPC and HPDA markets.”
The Intel Stratix 10 MX FPGA family provides a maximum memory
bandwidth of 512 gigabytes per second with the integrated HBM2. HBM2
vertically stacks DRAM layers using silicon via (TSV) technology. These
DRAM layers sit on a base layer that connects to the FPGA using
high-density micro bumps.
The Intel Stratix 10 MX FPGA family uses Intel’s Embedded Multi-Die
Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) that rates correspondence between FPGA
texture and the DRAM. EMIB attempts to proficiently incorporate HBM2
with a superior solid FPGA texture, settling the memory data
transmission bottleneck in a power-effective way.
