Intel processor in-app purchase feature named Intel On Demond

Intel revealed the capabilities of its next-generation Xeon Scalable processor's software-defined chip (SDSi), as well as the technology's official brand name.

Intel's processor SDSi, officially known as " Intel On Demand," unlocks processor add-ons through payment, allowing system administrators to pay an additional fee to enable the Sapphire Rapids integrated into Intel's fourth-generation Xeon Scalable processors. Dedicated accelerator.

Intel released an update to the SDSi patch merged with Linux 5.18 this week, revealing more details about the feature, reports Phoronix. According to reports, Intel On Demand will support paying to enable the following features:

  • Discover what features are actually present on a specific CPU
  • Have the administrator activate them
  • Enables administrators to evaluate how often the feature is used

It's unclear what features Intel will allow "in-app purchases." But Intel's Sapphire Rapids processors have several specific acceleration technologies, including Advanced Matrix Scaling (AMX) for accelerating specific workloads, Dynamic Load Balancer (DLB), Intel Data Streaming Accelerator (DSA), Intel Memory Analytics Accelerator (IAA) and Intel QuickAssist Technology (QAT).

Intel On Demand can access interfaces in the CPU to allow chip functionality with Authentication Key Certificate (AKC) and Capability Activation Payload (CAP) licenses.

After numerous delays, Intel's fourth-generation Xeon scalable processor Sapphire Rapids will be released on January 10 next year. Based on the Intel 7 process, we will know what processors and processors are available at that time. Features require additional payment to unlock.
