Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger announces that his company is back on track CRN interview. Leave AMD alone Market share rise——Not to mention provided The best gaming CPU with workstation 2021 – or Increased competition From design company Arm-based chip. Gelsinger doesn’t seem to care about any of them.
Why? Part of the reason is that his job is to keep these concerns from showing in such interviews. But also because of the upcoming Alder Lake and Sapphire Rapids processors, he said this will prove Intel’s commitment to dominate the CPU market again, so that no one can question who should wear the crown.
In his own words:
“So during this time people can say,’Hey, [AMD] Leading,’ and it’s over.We came back with a very clear point of view, that is, what is required for leadership in all aspects: leadership products, leadership [chip] Packaging, leadership processes, leadership software, unquestionable leadership in key new workloads such as artificial intelligence, graphics, media, power performance, etc., once again enable the ecosystem. This is how we will take positive actions and plans in the coming years. “
Radical may be an understatement.Intel is not only talking about the performance of upcoming processors-it is also committed to Build a custom x86 CPU Through IDM 2.0, pursue Leading RISC-V chip designer SiFive, and revealed plans to build a large wafer fab in the United States Europe with US As each region hopes Improve their supply chain.
Of course, the quality of Intel processors is also important, especially because AMD’s gains in this area are at least part of the reason for its recent market share growth. But again, Gelsinger doesn’t seem to be worried about Intel’s response to increasing competition, especially since it has already revealed the answer to AMD’s latest efforts.
“We don’t have an 80% share because we cannot satisfy our customers, nor the market, nor our partners,” Gelsinger said. “Yes, AMD has done a great job in the past few years. We will not ignore them because of their excellent work, but Alder Lake and Sapphire Rapids are over.”
Lake Alder officially announced Intel Architecture Day 2021These SoCs will try to pass 9W to 125W TDP and up to 8 efficiency cores and 8 performance cores. In desktop products, a total of 16 cores and 24 threads will try to enter almost all consumer devices.
These specifications may not be fair to Old Lake. Raja Koduri, Intel’s senior vice president and general manager of the accelerated computing systems and graphics business unit, described it as the biggest change in the x86 architecture in more than a decade. The company is responding to AMD and Arm-based chips through the platform.
Sapphire Rapids may not be appropriately named-production of the first Xeon Scalable processor based on this architecture has declined From the end of 2021 arrive First half of 2022-But this should not prevent it from keeping pace with AMD’s latest EPYC products. (Especially with Continued supply crunch Used for server CPU. )
“Intel is back,” Gelsinger told CRN. “These are the best products of its kind. We have the best supply. We have the best software assets. The most respected and respected technology brands in the industry. Yes, this is what your channel readers need Something to provide to their customers.”
