Intel Announces Cascade Lake Xeon, Optane DC Persistent, Ethernet 800, and More at Data Centric Innovation Day

Jeffrey Powers was one of the delegates at Intel Data-Centric Innovation Day. In this post, he looks at all the Intel announcements at the event. The 2nd generation Scalable Xeons, now with up to 56 cores, certainly made an impression, but were hardly the only highlight. Intel Optane DC, the 100Gb 800-series Ethernet controller, and more showed that Intel was focusing on faster processing, better control of memory, low latency delivery, and security of your data.
