Intel Vision 2024 showcased Intel Corp’s INTC ambitious strides in generative AI (GenAI) with the launch of the Intel Gaudi 3 accelerator, designed to enhance performance, openness, and choice for enterprise GenAI applications

Amidst the challenge of scaling AI initiatives, where only 10% of enterprises successfully moved GenAI projects into production last year, Intel’s new offerings aim to address these hurdles, providing solutions for businesses to overcome obstacles in scaling AI efforts.

At the event held in Phoenix, Arizona, Intel highlighted the critical role of silicon in the rapid advancement of innovation. CEO Pat Gelsinger emphasized Intel’s efforts to democratize AI across various sectors, from PCs to data centers and to the edge.

The introduction of the Gaudi 3 AI accelerator promised up to four times more AI computing for BF16 operations and a 1.5 times increase in memory bandwidth compared to its predecessors.

The Gaudi 3 will likely outperform Nvidia Corp’s NVDA H100 by notable margins in terms of training times and inference throughput, highlighting Intel’s competitive edge in the market. 

Intel also emphasized the importance of open, community-based software and standard Ethernet networking, allowing enterprises to scale their AI systems flexibly from single nodes to clusters containing thousands of nodes.

Intel outlined its strategy for open, scalable AI systems, engaging various partners to offer tailored solutions that meet enterprises’ specific GenAI needs. 

Intel’s partnerships with companies across various sectors, including NAVER, Bosch, IBM, and Bharti Airtel, demonstrate the widespread interest and application of Intel Gaudi accelerator solutions in innovative GenAI projects. 

Last week, Intel unveiled a revamped financial reporting framework distinguishing between its Intel Products and Intel Foundry divisions. Additionally, the company appointed Lorenzo Flores, formerly the CFO of Xilinx, as the CFO of Intel Foundry.

Mark Henninger has been named the CFO for Intel Products. According to analysts, Intel aims for an approximately 60% gross margin and 40% operating margin for its Products division.

Meanwhile, the Foundry division is setting its sights on long-term targets of 40% gross margin and 30% operating margin.

Intel stock gained 18% in the last 12 months. Investors can gain exposure to the stock via First Trust Nasdaq Semiconductor ETF FTXL and Invesco PHLX Semiconductor ETF SOXQ.
