Intel’s Raja Koduri shares photos from Xe labs in Folsom (USA).

Intel Arctic Sound GPU teased

Koduri showcased what appears to be a family of Xe products from Intel’s Folsom labs. The photographs show three different Xe-based products, but also methods to cool down the processors.

The first product (on the left side) was already teased by Raja not that long time ago – it is a Xe-HP based data center accelerator. The new products on the right side include smaller silicon in the top right corner and a massive GPU in the bottom right corner.

The top right product could be Intel’s DG1 (or DG2), whereas the big one should be the Arctic Sound prototype. Devices are likely to use a multichip approach (tiles). According to rumors, we should expect three tile-configurations 1, 2 and 4 tile-based products. This photograph would be a confirmation of this leak.

The new big Xe product in the bottom right is referred to by Raja as BFP – Big Fabulous Package. This device is likely a Xe-HPC-based data center accelerator. Everything we know so far about Intel Xe devices points towards Arctic Sound with 4 tiles. In fact, one of the photos has engraved “ATS-4T” label, which would confirm just that. This product was also listed with a 48V power requirement (as seen below), which can only be supported by the server environment.
