Intel begins shipping Arctic Sound-M Server GPUs

intel informed on the start of shipments of server accelerators based on X architecture graphics processorse Codenamed Arctic Sound-M (ATS-M). These are general-purpose GPUs suitable for cloud gaming platforms, media content processing, virtual workspaces, inference systems, and video analytics.

This spring, Intel announced two versions Arctic Sound-M. Both modifications use the PCIe 4.0 x16 interface and are equipped with GDDR6 memory. One variant has 32 X corese and has a claimed TDP of 150W. The second, more compact version is equipped with 16 X corese and has a TDP of 75W.

The low power consumption made it possible to build both accelerators in a single slot and to do without an active cooling system.

Arctic Sound-M accelerators are distinguished by the presence of a hardware AV1 codec and ray tracing accelerators. A single Arctic Sound-M accelerator can handle over 30 full HD video streams or up to 8 4K live streams and up to 60 VDI sessions in a full desktop environment. For cloud gaming, the accelerator can support up to 40 simultaneous game streams. In addition, it performs at the level of 150 tops in inference tasks (INT8).
