Up to 40% Lower Total Power Compared to Intel ® Stratix ® 10 FPGAs Intel® Agilex™ FPGA Data Center, Cloud, Communication and Embedded Derived from testing an example design suite comparing total power estimates of each design running in Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGAs compared to the total power consumed by the same design running in Intel® Agilex™ FPGAs. Bitmap PHOTO Power estimates of Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGA designs are obtained from Intel® Stratix® 10 and Agilex FPGA are obtained using Intel® FPGA Power and Thermal Calculator (PTC 20.4), and internal Intel® analysis and architecture simulation and modeling. The six workloads compared is shown below: December 2020
50% Higher Performance Compared to competing 7nm FPGA Intel® Agilex™ FPGA Embedded Derived from a set of five video IP designs comparing Fmax of each design achieved in Xilinx Versal ACAP devices with the Fmax achieved in Intel® Agilex™ devices, using Intel® Quartus® Prime Software (version 20.4) and Xilinx Vivado Software (version 2020.2). On geomean, designs running in the mid speed grade of Intel® Agilex™ FPGAs achieve a 50% higher in Fmax compared to the same designs running in the mid speed grade of Xilinx Versal devices (-2M speed grade), and 42% higher in Fmax compared to the same designs running in the fast speed grade of Xilinx Versal devices (-2H speed grade) and 24% higher in Fmax compared to the same designs running in the mid speed grade of Xilinx 16nm VUP devices (-2 speed grade) January 2021
~2X better Fabric Performance per Watt Compared to competing 7nm FPGA Intel® Agilex™ FPGA Data Center, Cloud, Communication and Embedded The Agilex and Versal devices (part number/speed grade) used in the perf/watt comparison are as follows: Agilex: AGF014-2, Versal: Equivalent density to AGF014-2 in 2M speed grade. Design profile used for the comparison: Base Stratix 10 frequency: 450MHz, Agilex Fmax = 450 * 1.59 = 716Mhz, Versal Fmax = 450 * 1.19 = 536Mhz. Bitmap PHOTO Resource usage: 60% of AGF014 resource (logic, M20K memory, DSP), power at the respective Fmax Version of all the tools used for this data :Agilex: Quartus 20.4/PTC 21.1 b149, Versal :Vivado 2020.2/XPE: 2020.2 March 2021
Up to 49% faster fabric performance compared to prior generation FPGA for high-speed 5G fronthaul gateway applications Intel® Agilex™ FPGA Communication Derived from comparing the Fmax result of Agilex FPGA and Stratix 10 FPGA in a fronthaul gateway example design using the FHGW example design and running the design targetting both Stratix 10 and Agilex in Quartus Prime 20.4 software February 2021
