Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), the organizer of Computex, has announced that Pat Gelsinger, chief executive of Intel, will deliver a keynote at Computex 2024 on June 4, 2024. Focusing on the trade show's theme of artificial intelligence, he will showcase Intel's next-generation AI-enhanced products for client and datacenter computers.

According to TAITRA's press release, Pat Gelsinger will discuss how Intel's product lineup, including the AI-accelerated Intel Xeon, Intel Gaudi, and Intel Core Ultra processor families, opens up new opportunities for client PCs, cloud computing, datacenters, and network and edge applications. He will also discuss superior performance-per-watt and lower cost of ownership of Intel's Xeon processors, which enhance server capacity for AI workloads.

The most intriguing part of Intel's Computex keynote will of course be the company's next-generation AI-enhanced products for client and datacenter computers. At this point Intel is prepping numerous products that pose a lot of interest, including the following:

  • Arrow Lake and Lunar Lake processors made on next-generation process technologies for desktop and mobile PCs and featuring all-new microarchitectures;
  • Granite Rapids CPUs for datacenters based on a high-performance microarchitecture;
  • Sierra Forest processors with up to 288 cores for cloud workloads based on codenamed Crestmont energy-efficient cores;
  • Gaudi 3 processors for AI workloads that promise to quadruple BF16 performance compared to Gaudi 2.
  • Battlemage graphics processing units.

All of these products are due to be released in 2024-2025, so Intel could well demonstrate them and showcase their performance advantages, or even formally launch some of them, at Computex. What remains to be seen is whether Intel will also give a glimpse at products that are further away, such as Clearwater Forest and Falcon Shores.

    I agree that AI is independent of the hardware, and the calculations could just as well be done on general-purpose CPUs but at a massively slower rate. What I'm hitting at is that this hardware, accidentally developed because of games, has proved key to other important fields.

    While AI needs much more development, it is scraping the surface of what is going on in the brain. And I wouldn't be surprised that from a "hardware" point of view, the brain implements some sort of biological model that is performing massively-parallel floating-point calculations. With all our pretensions, perhaps in the end we'll learn that we're advanced calculators.

    Or learn that analog and digital are different realms and that's why the "brain as computer" metaphor breaks down.

    They may be different realms on the surface, but fundamentally, are they really so? Digital, at a lower level, is represented by analogue, and there have been analogue computers in the past. The brain is similar to both a computer and a neural network---which was inspired by the brain---and I see it as an advanced, analogue computation device, drastically ahead of today's computers in many ways and behind in others.

    That's a dream for sure.

    Battlemage is not looking too good right now. Rumors are they are behind schedule so badly that laptop makers have ditched the mobile variant. There is not even a rumor of what a finalized Battlemage lineup would look like and it's already March.

    I'm kind of questioning if they can get products to stores in volume by the end of Q4.

    Please fix the typo: “Clearwater Forest” instead of “Clearwater Shores”

    If those 20A CPUs arrive on time (and all indications are that they will) then Intel will regain process superiority over AMD for the first time in many years. It seems likely to me that Zen 5 on TSMC 4nm will not be able to compete. AMD may be on the verge of another Core 2 Duo experience.

    The upside for consumers is that there could be some nice price cuts from AMD in early 2025 as the new reality starts to settle in.
