Intel Launches Data Center GPU Flex Series for AI, Gaming, and Video

Intel officially announced its Data Center GPU Flex series on Wednesday, but started shipping its Arctic Sound-M discrete processing units for data centers about a month ago. The new graphics boards are based on the company’s Arc Alchemist graphics processors, target a variety of data center applications, and will be available from various Intel partners once the products reach the required maturity.

Intel’s Data Center GPU Flex graphics card family includes two base products. The single-chip Flex Series 170 is based on one ACM-G10 GPU with up to 32 Xe cores (equivalent to up to 4,096 stream processors) and 16 GB of memory for workloads that demand maximum performance. Intended for loading. The dual-chip Flex Series 140 card features two ACM-G11 GPUs with 16 Xe cores and 12GB of memory and is targeted at high-density machines.

Both the card and GPU are powered by Intel’s Xe-HPG architecture. It is primarily designed with games in mind, but also artificial intelligence, Android and Windows cloud gaming, video transcoding (HEVC, AV1, AVC, and VP9 codecs), and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) applications. For now, Intel is positioning these boards for Android cloud gaming and media transcoding workloads. AI, VDI, and Windows cloud gaming will only be supported “when the product reaches full maturity.”
