Jeni Panhorst, vice president and general manager of the Networking and Edge Computing Group at Intel, said:
Driven by labor demands, supply chain constraints, and changing consumer behavior, as the digitization of business processes continues to accelerate, the demand for data created at the edge and processed locally for analytics has exploded.
The digital transformation of IoT edge computing, in particular, requires improved local information processing and AI inference performance to meet the demands of future AI workloads.
The Intel 12th-generation Core SoC processor for IoT Edge can meet the performance requirements in this area while expanding the configurability of related project implementation and the flexibility of the overall solution.
For Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs), this means faster integration and delivery of solutions for a variety of unique vertical markets and specific use cases such as edge computing.
In addition, the SoC’s top-down manageability features (covering options such as vPro/vPro) provide best-in-class remote control and manageability, which is critical for IoT Edge system management and service deployment.
Compared to the 12W/65W SKUs in Intel’s 10th Gen Core desktop processor family, the 12th Gen Core SoCs for IoT Edge also include support for the Intel Thread Director hardware thread scheduler.
It delivers up to 4x faster graphics processing and up to 6.6x faster GPU image classification inference performance, intelligently directing the operating system to allocate the appropriate workload to each CPU core.
In addition, the 12th generation Intel Core SoC has up to 14C / 20T, single thread up to 1.32 times, multi-threading up to 1.27 times – providing powerful support for high-performance AI applications such as inference and machine vision.
Graphics units up to 96 EU are also highly parallelizable in AI workloads, with built-in Intel DL Boost machine learning accelerators for additional performance gains, and full support for Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit optimizations and cross-architecture inference.
Panhorst added: “By combining a CPU with high-performance in-core graphics, enhanced visual computing and AI into a compact processor configuration, the 12th-generation Core SoC for the IoT Edge market makes it easier for customers to understand from custom designs There are more opportunities to improve applications such as precise imaging and pattern recognition for medical diagnostics.”
Finally, retail banks, hotels andeducateCustomers in other fields will be able to expand the remote control and management capabilities of edge systems, drive sales value and respond quickly to changing demands.
Industrial manufacturing customers can better leverage industrial PCs, edge servers, advanced controllers, machine vision systems and virtualized control platforms.
Healthcare customers will also be able to offer enhanced ultrasound imaging, medical carts, endoscopy, and other clinical equipment at the edge.
