"The race to solve data-centric problems requires agile and flexible
solutions that can move, store and process data efficiently. Intel
Agilex FPGAs deliver customized connectivity and acceleration while
delivering much needed improvements in performance and power1,2
for diverse workloads."
-- Dan McNamara, Intel senior vice
president, Programmable Solutions Group
Why It's Important: Customers need solutions that can aggregate
and process increasing amounts of data traffic to enable transformative
applications in emerging, data-driven industries like edge computing,
networking and cloud. Whether it's through edge analytics for
low-latency processing, virtualized network functions to improve
performance, or data center acceleration for greater efficiency, Intel
Agilex FPGAs are built to deliver customized solutions for applications
from the edge to the cloud. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI)
analytics at the edge, network and the cloud are compelling hardware
systems to cope with evolving standards, support varying AI workloads,
and integrate multiple functions. Intel Agilex FPGAs provide the
flexibility and agility required to meet these challenges and deliver
gains in performance and power1,2.
How It's Unique: The Intel Agilex family combines FPGA fabric
built on Intel's 10nm process with innovative heterogeneous 3D SiP
technology. This provides the capability to integrate analog, memory,
custom computing, custom I/O, and Intel eASIC device tiles into a single
package with the FPGA fabric. Intel delivers a custom logic continuum
with reusable IPs through a migration path from FPGA to structured ASIC.
One API provides a software-friendly heterogeneous programming
environment, enabling software developers to easily access the benefits
of FPGA for acceleration.
The Intel Agilex FPGA provides new capabilities to help accelerate the
solutions of tomorrow. These innovations include:
Compute Express Link: Industry's first FPGA to support Compute
Express Link, a cache and memory coherent interconnect to future Intel®
Xeon® Scalable processors.
Innovation: Only FPGA supporting hardened BFLOAT16 and up to 40
teraflops of digital signal processor (DSP) performance (FP16).3
2nd-Generation HyperFlex Architecture:
Up to 40 percent higher performance, or up to 40 percent lowe total
power2 compared with Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGAs1.
component interconnect express (PCIe) Gen 5: Higher bandwidth
compared with PCIe Gen 4.
Transceiver Data Rates: Support up
to 112 Gbps data rates.
Advanced memory support: DDR5, HBM,
Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory support.

1 Up to 40 percent higher performance compared to Intel
Stratix 10 FPGAs
Derived from benchmarking an example design suite comparing maximum
clock speed (Fmax) achieved in Intel Stratix 10 devices with the Fmax
achieved in Intel Agilex devices, using Intel Quartus Prime Software. On
average, designs running in the fastest speed grade of Intel Agilex
FPGAs achieve a 40 percent improvement in Fmax compared to the same
designs running in the most popular speed grade of Stratix 10 devices
(-2 speed grade), tested February 2019.
2Up to 40 percent lower total power compared to Intel Stratix
Derived from benchmarking an example design suite comparing total power
estimates of each design running in Intel Stratix 10 FPGAs compared to
the total power consumed by the same design running in Intel Agilex
FPGAs. Power estimates of Intel Stratix 10 FPGA designs are obtained
from Intel Stratix 10 Early Power Estimator; power estimates for Intel
Agilex FPGA designs are obtained using internal Intel analysis and
architecture simulation and modeling, tested February 2019.
3Up to 40 TFLOPs of DSP Performance (FP16 Configuration)
Each Intel Agilex DSP block can perform two FP16 floating-point
operations (FLOPs) per clock cycle. Total FLOPs for FP16 configuration
is derived by multiplying 2x the maximum number of DSP blocks to be
offered in a single Intel Agilex FPGA by the maximum clock frequency
that will be specified for that block.
