California’s Latest Gold Rush – Google and Intel Dig in to Tap the AI Business Market Seam

Intel’s Data-Centric Innovation Day had no dearth of prominent announcements. So much so that some with the biggest impact might have gotten lost in the media narrative. Kurt Marko thinks one of the major announcements was Intel integrating AI-optimizations into their new Scalable Xeons with DL Boost. This allows Intel to use their x86 data center dominance into AI inferencing engines. For a deeper dive into this, be sure to check out the full video from our Tech Field Day Exclusive at the event.

Intel – Putting Substance Behind Its Strategy Slideware

Intel’s recent swath of announcements from its Data Centric Innovation Day marked a bit of a culmination in messaging for Kurt Marko. This sees Intel no longer concerned about talking to the general public, and the event showed them talking directly to cloud builders and enterprise IT. The announcement of 2nd generation Scalable Xeon processors and Optane DC both highlight that servers are the core of Intel’s business, with further announcements aiming to make them core to many existing and emerging datacenter categories. You can find more detail in the presentation from Tech Field Day Exclusive At Intel Data-Centric Innovation Day.
