There are two energy provides, with one PSU plugged into the GPU analysis board and one other PSU powering the motherboard. I really like the insider look that we’re getting at Intel’s return to the GPU market, that is one thing I’ve needed to see extra of — I would like to have livestreams from inside the lab and fireside-style chats with Raja about GPUs.
Within the tweet Raja is speaking about how from inside the Intel Folsom lab the place he was at Apple as an engineer again in 2012, within the Intel Folsom lab with the pre-production Crystal Effectively — and now in 2021 in the identical lab enjoying with a GPU that’s over 20x sooner.
