The H3C XG310 graphics card is a single-slot, full-height, three-quarter-length PCIe Gen3 x16 form factor. This discrete server graphics card is powered by four Intel® Server GPUs. It includes 32 GB of low-power DDR4 memory at a TDP of 150W and is passively cooled, allowing airflow in both directions for flexible server chassis design.

Features

Based on Intel Xe Architecture

The Intel® Server GPU is the first discrete graphics processing unit for data centers based on the new Intel Xe architecture, which is designed to scale exponentially.

 

High-Density Streaming

Supports an estimated 20 Android games per Intel® Server GPU. The H3C XG310 PCIe card that integrates four Intel Server GPUs can support greater than 100 simultaneous users in a typical 2 card system and up to 160 simultaneous users.2 See the performance page for more information.

Standard Industry Frameworks

The Intel® Server GPU supports accelerated AVC, HEVC, MPEG2, VP9 encode/decode, and AV1 decode.

High Performance Per Watt

This server GPU is based on a 23W discrete system-on-chip (SoC) design with a 128-bit wide pipeline and 8 GB of dedicated low-power DDR4 memory.

Open Software Stack

Open-source software includes drivers, APIs, and developer tools such as the Intel® Media SDK, an FFmpeg plugin, and the Mesa 3D Graphics Library.

Optimized Android Cloud Gaming Software

Intel licenses software to support high-server game-stream density, game performance, and breadth of gaming title accessibility.

"Intel is an important collaborator on our Android Cloud Gaming solution. Intel Xeon Scalable Processors and Intel Server GPUs offer a high-density, low-latency, low-power, low TCO solution. We are able to generate over 100 game instances per 2 card server for our most popular games, King of Glory and Arena of Valor.”

Allen Fang, vice general manager of Tencent XianYou Cloud Gaming Platform
