Intel-Tsinghua Jintide Xeon Processor: Hot Chips 2019 Live Coverage

Today Intel is unveiling more details about its "Jintide" Xeon processors here at Hot Chips 31. This is live coverage, so refresh your browser or return to the article for as-it-happens updates.

Intel has a partnership in China with Tsinghua University, long known to be heavily influenced by the Chinese government, and Montage Technology Global Holdings, a Chinese server vendor, that allows the development of a co-processor that connects to Intel's Xeon cores to provide China-approved encryption/decryption technologies. These two solutions are combined in a single "Jintide" package.
