Intel has announced the availability of its 12th Gen Intel Core SoC processors for IoT Edge. Offered as a first-of-its-kind socketed system-on-chip (SoC), the device delivers high performance integrated graphics and media processing for visual compute workloads, a compact footprint to enable smaller form factor designs, and a wide operating thermal design power (TDP) that enables fanless designs.

“As the digitization of business processes continues to accelerate — fueled by workforce demand, supply chain constraints and changing consumer behavior — the amount of data created at the edge and the need for it to be processed and analyzed locally continues to explode,” says Jeni Panhorst, Intel vice president and general manager of the Network and Edge Compute Division. “Intel understands the challenges that businesses face — across a wide range of vertical industries — and is committed to help them continue to deliver innovative use cases.”

12th Gen Intel Core SoC processors for IoT Edge are designed to respond to performance demands and expand implementation configurability and overall solution flexibility to enable original equipment manufacturers and original design manufacturers to quickly integrate – and ship – solutions that fit the wide variety of unique vertical market and edge-specific use cases. Additionally, the SoC processors feature manageability capabilities from top to bottom, including Intel vPro options for best-in-class remote control and manageability essential for managing and servicing systems deployed at the IoT edge.

Delivering up to four times faster graphics and up to 6.6 times faster GPU image classification inference performance compared with 10th Gen Intel Core desktop processors in a 12W to 65W design, 12th Gen Intel Core SoC processors for IOT Edge include Intel Thread Director, which intelligently directs the operating system to assign the right workload to the right core. With up to 14 cores and 20 threads, the SoC processors reach up to 1.32 times faster single-thread performance³ and up to 1.27 times faster multithread performance4 compared with 10th Gen Intel Core desktop processors.

The processors support high-performing AI for inferencing and machine vision. Up to 96 graphics execution units allow for a high degree of parallelization in AI workloads, while built-in AI acceleration on the CPU from Intel Deep Learning Boost (Intel DL Boost) provides additional inferencing performance. The processors fully support Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit optimizations and cross-architecture inferencing.

12th Generation Intel Core processors for IoT Edge deliver benefits across industries:

  • Retail, banking, hospitality and education customers will be able to expand remote control and manageability capabilities of systems at the edge, drive value from frictionless point-of-sale and quickly respond to changing supply and demand.
  • Industrial manufacturing customers can take better advantage of industrial PCs, edge servers, advanced controllers, machine vision systems and virtualized control platforms.
  • Healthcare customers will be able to deliver enhanced ultrasound imaging, medical carts, endoscopy and clinical devices at the edge.

“By combining the CPU with the highest performing integrated graphics, enhanced visual compute, and AI into one compact processing configuration, 12th Gen Intel Core SoC processors for IoT Edge make it easier for customers to unlock new opportunities from customized retail point-of-sale solutions to precise imaging and pattern recognition for improved healthcare diagnoses,” says Panhorst.
