Intel showcased Arctic Sound M data center GPUs at Intel Vision 2022. These two graphics cards use the Xe-HP architecture for multimedia transcoding, visual graphics processing, cloud gaming, cloud reasoning, and other scenarios, and this is the first GPU that supports AV1 video encoding. Intel has previously demonstrated that Arctic Sound M can transcode 8 4K video streams at the same time or 30 1080p video streams.
ServeTheHome shared the Arctic Sound M data center GPU displayed at the Intel Vision 2022, which has two models, 150W and 75W. The 150W model is based on the ACM-G10 GPU, and the 75W model uses two ACM-G11 GPUs. Although the 75W version has two GPUs, it is actually smaller in size and is left half-height.
This full-height Arctic Sound M data center GPU has 32 Xe cores. There are a variety of different solutions on display, some with an 8pin power connector populated, and some without an 8pin port power connector populated.
The half-height 75W version of the two GPUs adds up to a total of 16 sets of Xe cores. Because of its smaller structure, it can be placed in a more compact rack. Both versions of Arctic Sound M have 4 media engines, also support light tracking, use GDDR6 video memory, and support XMX AI acceleration. This graphics card is expected to be released and listed in the third quarter of this year and has already received orders from multiple partners.
