Announcing Android Cloud Gaming & Media Processing & Delivery Solutions Based on New Intel Data Center GPU Named Arctic Sound-M

Supermicro solutions that will contain Intel Data Center GPUs named Arctic Sound-M, include 4U 10x GPU server for transcoding and media streaming, Supermicro BigTwin® system with up to eight Intel Data Center GPUs, named Arctic Sound-M in 2U for multimedia processing applications, the Supermicro CloudDC server for AI inference at the edge and the Supermicro 2U 2-node server with three Intel Data Center GPUs, named Arctic Sound-M per node, optimized for online gaming. cloud. Additional systems will be made available later this year.

“Supermicro will extend our media processing solutions by incorporating the Intel Data Center GPU,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO, Supermicro. “The new solutions will increase video streaming rates and help reduce latency for Android cloud gaming. As a result, Android cloud gaming performance and interactivity will increase dramatically with Supermicro BigTwin systems, while streaming and media transcoding will show dramatic improvements with new Intel Data Center GPUs.The solutions will expand our market-leading accelerated computing offerings, including everything from media processing and delivery to collaboration and HPC. »

Systems adapted to workloads

Transcoding is an essential technology for today’s media-centric world. The Supermicro 4U 10x GPU Server is ideal for various industries, where multiple formats need to be delivered to a wide range of video devices.

Cloud-based games require significant computing power and the ability to deliver interactive frame rates to gaming enthusiasts. With the 2U 2-node Supermicro server with Intel Data Center GPU, named Arctic Sound-M, Android cloud-based gaming reaches a new level of performance.

Media processing for Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) requires fast and efficient delivery of all types of media. The Supermicro BigTwin system with the Intel Data Center GPU will deliver multiple streams of video content to consumers.

“The Intel Data Center GPU is a highly flexible solution for accelerating the workloads that have become an integral part of everyday life. The combination of advanced multimedia capabilities, a graphics rendering pipeline, and an open software stack delivers a high density and low latency, and the exquisite visual quality required for next-generation video conferencing, media streaming, and cloud gaming deployments.Supermicro’s new product offerings with Intel Data Center GPU pave the way for rapid market deployments,” said Jeff McVeighvice president and general manager of the Super Compute Group at Intel.

Supermicro building block solutions® This approach allows Supermicro to bring a product line to market faster so that new technologies can be quickly incorporated into its server lines. For example, Android Cloud games with the new Intel Data Center GPU named Arctic Sound-M will support more interactive users than before. Streaming performance will see a dramatic increase with the industry’s first AV1 hardware encoder and open-source media software stack, compared to software-only video transcoding.

The Intel Data Center GPU, named Arctic Sound-M, is designed to be an open and flexible solution for cloud gaming and media processing and delivery. This GPU will be supported by a comprehensive solution stack providing developers with an open-source software stack for Android media streaming and cloud gaming, with broad support for the latest codecs, graphics APIs, and frameworks. With Intel® oneAPI for unified programming across architectures, the Intel Data Center GPU named Arctic Sound-M will provide an open alternative to proprietary language locking that will enable full hardware performance with a comprehensive and proven set of tools that complement existing languages and parallel models. This will allow developers to design open and portable codes that will make the most of various CPU and GPU combinations.
