Faster Silicon Design with Intel® Xeon® Processor 7500 SeriesIT Brief: 64-Bit ComputingSilicon design requires significant computing resources. The largest, most compute-intensive design jobs require four-socket servers, which offer greater processing power and memory capacity to help ensure these long-running jobs are completed to meet critical design timelines. Accordingly, large-memory four-socket servers are an essential component of the Intel IT high-performance computing (HPC) silicon design environment.To assess the potential benefits of four-socket servers based on Intel® Xeon® processor 7500 series for silicon design, we recently conducted tests using large multi-threaded and distributed electronic design automation (EDA) applications operating on current Intel® silicon design datasets. Servers based on Intel Xeon processor 7500 series include up to 8 cores per processor, 4x the memory capacity of previous generations, and an integrated memory controller providing greater memory bandwidth.By utilizing all the available cores, the server completed complex silicon design workloads 1.65x to 2.68x faster than a server based on Intel® Xeon® processor 7400 series, and up to 5.76x faster than a server based on Intel® Xeon® processor 7100 series, as shown in Figure 1.Based on our results, Intel Xeon processor 7500 series offers significant throughput improvements compared to prior generations; these improvements can help accelerate long-running silicon design jobs, thereby helping to reduce the time required to bring new silicon designs to market.Read the full Faster Silicon Design Brief.
