Intel’s XPU will not only offer CPU and GPU chips

Two out of four chiplets can even be custom designed, which Intel makes through IDM 2.0.

Back in the spring, Intel presented the development codenamed Falcon Shores, which the company calls XPU, because four chips can be placed on the casing. As far as the specific construction is concerned, all that has been known so far is that the system will be able to request four CPU or four GPU chiplets, and it is also possible to mix them in one case up to two chips each.

The company revealed at the SuperComputing 22 event that, in addition to the above options, individual configurations can also be requested. This is where the company’s IDM 2.0 strategy comes into play, as a maximum of two of the four chiplets can be custom-designed, specifically the kind requested by the customer, and designed and manufactured by Intel.

This already indicates that it is difficult to talk about individual Falcon Shores configurations in general, since it almost depends on the customer’s needs even at the level of the special chiplet. Regarding these, it is already possible to negotiate with the giant company from Santa Clara, obviously this does not affect everyone in the market, but some actors can take advantage of the opportunity.
