No information yet. I assume that the article which will appear in Microprocessor Report on December 2 will be more detailed.


Anyway, I expect it to implement the same subset as Skylake Server, because it is intended as a competitor for the Intel Xeon D-2100 series.


It also implements "new instructions for fast transfer of AI data". It is not clear if these are instructions proprietary to VIA or they are among the instructions announced by Intel for future products (e.g. Tremont or Tiger Lake).
