Product and Performance Information


Comparison based on Stratix® V vs. Intel® Stratix® 10 using Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro 16.1 Early Beta. Stratix® V Designs were optimized using 3 step optimization process of Hyper-Retiming, Hyper-Pipelining, and Hyper-Optimization in order to utilize Intel® Stratix® 10 architecture enhancements of distributed registers in core fabric. Designs were analyzed using Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Fast Forward Compile performance exploration tool. For more details, refer to Intel® Hyperflex™ FPGA Architecture Overview White Paper: Actual performance users will achieve varies based on level of design optimization applied. Tests measure performance of components on a particular test, in specific systems. Differences in hardware, software, or configuration will affect actual performance.
