Intel unveils new Xeon chip with integrated FPGA, touts 20x performance boost

22nm silicon die and wafer (Intel, Knights Ferry)
Late yesterday, Intel quietly announced one of the biggest ever changes to its chip lineup: It will soon offer a new type of Xeon CPU with an integrated FPGA. This new Xeon+FPGA chip will fit in the standard E5 LGA2011 socket, but the integrated FPGA will allow each chip to be customized to specific workloads. This move is almost certainly intended to make Intel-x86 a better all-round platform for a wider variety of workloads, and to dissuade customers from switching to GPGPU accelerators from the likes of Nvidia.
