Intel Gets FPGA Win As Dell EMC, Fujitsu Adopt Reprogrammable Chips For Their Servers

Intel scored a major win this week, disclosing that Dell EMC and Fujitsu are using Intel's reprogrammable microprocessors in their server product lineups.

Intel said this marks the first major use of its field-programmable gate array (FPGA) chips "to help speed up mainstream applications for the modern data center." Those microprocessors, which boost performance and power efficiency, can be programmed after manufacture for a wide range of workloads in analytics, financial services and smart city infrastructure.

Dell EMC's PowerEdge R640, R740 and R740XD servers that incorporate Intel's FPGA processors are already available.

The news validates Intel's $16.7 billion acquisition of Altera in 2015, which brought the FPGA technology for high-computing tasks to Intel.
