Intel 'Cannon Lake' potrjen s funkcijo AVX-512 Navodila


Intel updated the ARK information page for its stealthily launched 10 nm production chip, the Core i3-8121U 'Cannon Lake,' to confirm that the chip supports the new AVX-512 instruction-set. This is the first 'mainstream' client-segment processor by the company to feature the extremely advanced instruction-set that, if implemented properly on the software side, can double performance/Watt compared to tasks that can take advantage of AVX2.

Nabor navodil se je prvič predstavil s procesorjem HPC Xeon Phi 'Knights Landing' in svoj klientski prvenec predstavil s procesorji HEDT Core X 'Skylake X'. Še naprej je treba ugotoviti, ali je implementacija AVX-512 na „Cannon Lake“ končana ali če so nekatera navodila, najdena v HPC-jevih procesorjih, kot je Xeon Phi, izpuščena zaradi nepomembnosti za odjemalsko platformo.
