Xeon Platinum 8163 is a 64-bit24-corex86 multi-socket highest performance server microprocessor introduced by Intel in 2017. This chip supports up to 8-way multiprocessing. The Platinum 8163, which is based on the server configuration of the Skylake microarchitecture and is manufactured on a 14 nm+ process, sports 2 AVX-512FMA units as well as three Ultra Path Interconnect links. This microprocessor, which operates at 2.5 GHz with a TDP of ? W and a turbo boost frequency of up to ? GHz, supports up 768 GiB of hexa-channel DDR4-2666 memory.
Cache is a hardware component containing a relatively small and extremely fast memory designed to speed up the performance of a CPU by preparing ahead of time the data it needs to read from a relatively slower medium such as main memory.
The organization and amount of cache can have a large impact on the performance, power consumption, die size, and consequently cost of the IC.
Cache is specified by its size, number of sets, associativity, block size, sub-block size, and fetch and write-back policies.
