Mainstream Data-Intensive and I/O-bound Workloads Have Met Their Match
Many modern data center workloads—such as cloud, AI, data analytics, networking/5G, and storage—are more data-intensive. The Intel® Server M50FCP Family’s outstanding compute performance, and high-speed I/O and memory throughput excel at running those demanding workloads.
Featuring 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors—with purpose-designed accelerators built in,1 and platform-wide features that speed data to those processors—the Intel® Server M50FCP Family is an excellent companion platform to our Intel® Server M50CYP Family, meeting all your mainstream needs.
Innovative, hardware-enhanced security features help better protect your data, applications, and platforms. These servers provide two choices for taking advantage of Confidential Computing to protect data in-use —Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) and Intel® Trust Domain Extensions (Intel® TDX).
Intel’s world-class service and support2 help ensure you get the expertise and answers you need—from choosing and purchasing your server, through deployment and operations.

- High memory bandwidth: Up to 4800 MT/s per channel throughput increases CPU utilization. In addition, support for DDR5 memory provides 1.5x memory bandwidth versus DDR4 memory, speeding data (up to 4800 MT/s per channel).3
- High-speed networking and I/O: Accelerate network throughput between nodes with high-speed networking, including support for 400Gbps network cards.
- Silicon-hardened security: Advanced features built into the CPU accelerate encryption, enable Confidential Computing to protect data during active processing, provide continuous protection against advanced threats, and help ensure platforms boot in a known-trusted state.
Unleash the Power of Confidential Computing
For decades, sensitive data was encrypted to protect it when transmitted or stored. But data was still exposed and vulnerable during active processing.
4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors close that gap, offering two Confidential Computing choices to protect data in-use: Intel® SGX and Intel® TDX.
Intel® SGX is the most tested, researched, and battle-tested data center Trusted Execution Environment, with the smallest available attack surface. It enables you to place sensitive data and code in isolated, secure, processor-enforced enclaves to help protect sensitive data even if a system’s software layers become compromised.
Intel® TDX offers easy-to-implement protection for virtualized workloads, enabling rapid deployment at scale for cloud workloads, while keeping cloud service providers outside the trust boundary.
Confidential computing enables organizations to discover insights not possible before when sensitive data was siloed, and to move sensitive workloads to the cloud with confidence.

Reduce Risk of Counterfeit Parts with Intel® Transparent Supply Chain
Counterfeit electronic parts are a growing security concern across all organizations. These concerns have increased as supply chains have become more complex, multi-layered, and global.
Current supply chain practices start with trusting the source, but processes are limited for screening out counterfeit components, particularly for products containing many subsystems.
Intel® Transparent Supply Chain helps partners and customers verify the authenticity and firmware version of servers and their components through a set of tools, policies, and procedures. These verification steps, implemented on the factory floor at server manufacturers, enable enterprises to verify the authenticity and firmware version of systems and their components when systems arrive at their site.
This industry-leading approach helps:
- Provide component-level traceability and visibility
- Detect tampering of components and configuration state between stops
- Deliver fleet-level insights across suppliers
These and other safeguards increase assurance and trust that the Intel® Servers you’re purchasing and deploying are free of counterfeit components that could compromise your business or customers.
