Intel shares details on Xeon Phi 7120A coprocessor

US chip maker Intel has shared the first details on the upcoming Xeon Phi 7120A coprocessor. The chip is designed to power ultra high end servers and makes use of the Intel Many Integrated Core architecture that allows x86 cores to be combined with specialized processing cores that increase the efficiency when doing parallel computations. The Xeon Phi 7120A is based on 22 nm technology and comes with Tri-Gate transistors just like the latest Intel desktop processors.

The new chip has 61 cores that operate at 1238 MHz (1333 MHz in Turbo mode), 30.5 MB of L2 cache, 16 GB of GDDR5 memory at 5500 MHz and the capability to process up to 244 threads at once. The performance level of the new processor reaches 1220 GFLOPS and TDP is rated at 300W.

The processor will be cooled by a turbine-type cooler and supports PCI-E x24. The chip will be available next quarter but its pricing is still a secret.
