High-Performance On-Package Memory

Intel’s Knights Landing Leverages Technology Found in Micron’s HMC Devices

Knights Landing, Intel’s next-generation Xeon Phi™ CPU architecture, leverages the fundamental DRAM and stacking technologies found in our Hybrid Memory Cube (HMC) products. This high-performance, on-package memory enables Knights Landing to provide industry-leading performance, energy efficiency, and the reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) capabilities essential to the success of high-performance computing (HPC) systems.

HMC: The Path Forward

HMC technology enables advancements in performance, bandwidth, and energy efficiencies necessary to maximize the full potential of HPC. HMC has been recognized as the long-awaited answer to breaking down the “memory wall.”

See why HMC is the future of memory

“Intel will significantly increase the memory bandwidth for all Knights Landing products by introducing integrated on-package memory. This will allow customers to take full advantage of available compute capacity without encountering memory bandwidth bottlenecks experienced today.”

– Xbit Labs

“Intel’s many integrated core (MIC) architecture coupled with Micron’s high-performance memory solution is a formidable combination.”

– Tom Eby, VP of Micron’s Compute & Networking Group

Collaborating for Performance Excellence

Our collaboration with Intel enables highly optimized, best-in-class performance gains for next-generation HPC systems that would be impossible without both teams’ efforts. Knights Landing’s performance capabilities coupled with Micron’s high-performance, on-package memory technology—incorporating both logic and DRAM—provide an exceptional solution that delivers a rare combination of ultra-high performance and optimal energy efficiency.
