Match Every Application to Its Optimal Architecture with XPU

Applications are changing how we live and work. Ideally, every application’s performance, latency, and power needs are matched to the optimal hardware architecture (CPU, GPU, FPGA, ASIC), but this creates complexity. To help, Intel not only offers the widest array of hardware architectures in the industry, but a unified programming model to reduce the complexity.

Today’s Applications Demand an XPU Strategy

The “X” in “XPU” stands for any compute architecture that best fits the need of your application. Whether the application is for a PC, a car, or a robotic arm, you want a seamless experience.

Today’s applications require a mix of hardware architectures, with new languages, libraries, and tools to learn. Intel is the first to introduce an XPU strategy, offering the widest array of hardware architectures in the industry and a unified programming model to reduce the complexity.

With XPU, Intel is helping turn the promise of anywhere, anytime service delivery into a reality.
