Intel® Stratix® 10 MX FPGA is the essential multi-function accelerator for high-performance computing (HPC), data center, virtual networking functions (NFV), and broadcast applications. These devices combine the programmability and flexibility of Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGAs and SoCs with 3D stacked high-bandwidth memory 2 (HBM2). The Intel® Hyperflex™ FPGA Architecture enables high-performance core fabric that can efficiently utilize the bandwidth from the in-package memory tile. The DRAM memory tile is physically connected to the FPGA using Intel’s Embedded Multi-Die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) technology.
Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices offer 10X more bandwidth versus current discrete memory solutions such as DDR4 SDRAM. Traditional DDR4 DIMMs provide ~21 GBps bandwidth while 1 HBM2 tile provides up to 256 GBps.
Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices integrate up to two HBM2 devices in a single package, enabling a maximum memory bandwidth of up to 512 GBps.
Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices integrate HBM2 memory next to the core fabric. The interconnect between the core fabric and memory is significantly shorter, which reduces the amount of power traditionally spent driving long PCB traces. The traces are unterminated and there is reduced capacitive loading, which results in lower I/O current consumption. The net result is lower system power and optimum performance per watt.
Because the Intel® Stratix® 10 MX package contains integrated memory components, the PCB design has reduced routing complexity. This implementation enables a smaller form factor and a simple usage model. The net result is a highly flexible, scalable solution that is easy to use.
Intel® Stratix® 10 MX devices offer fast path, low-latency on-chip memory through embedded SRAM (eSRAM). eSRAM supplements already existing block RAM. eSRAM features include:
Tests measure performance of components on a particular test, in specific systems. Differences in hardware, software, or configuration will affect actual performance.
