No Longer Just A CPU Company
Intel made its strongest case yet on Tuesday that the chipmaker isn’t a one-trick pony in the data center market by showcasing a massive and sprawling portfolio of products for compute, network and storage.
With AMD trying to chip away at Intel’s dominant server market share for general-purpose processors, Intel is not resting on its laurels. The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company is betting on a wider range of offerings that interact with each other and target specific workloads. These products range from the new second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors to Intel Optane DC persistent memory.

What follows are the five biggest announcements the company made at its Intel Data-Centric Innovation Day event in San Francisco, which includes processors with new artificial intelligence capabilities, new memory technology and OEMs offering their support.
