New Product Introduction

Xilinx ALVEO™ - Adaptable Accelerator Cards

Breathe new life into your data center and on-premises with Xilinx Alveo accelerator cards for Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning or Data Center Workloads.

Xilinx Alveo product image

Xilinx® Alveo™ Data Center accelerator cards are designed to meet the constantly changing needs of the modern Data Center, providing up to 90X performance increase over CPUs for common workloads, including machine learning inference, video transcoding, and database search and analytics. 

Built on Xilinx 16nm UltraScale™ architecture, Alveo U50, U200, U250 and U280 accelerator cards provide reconfigurable acceleration that can adapt to continual algorithm optimizations, supporting any workload type while reducing overall cost of ownership. 

In addition to the DDR Memory, Alveo U280 offers 8 GB of integrated HBM2 memory delivering 460 GB/s memory bandwidth. An Alveo U250 accelerator card running xDNN (Xilinx Deep Neural Network) processing engines can deliver more than 4,000 images per second of GoogLeNet v1 throughput at low latency.

Key benefits

Highest Performance
Accelerate Any Workload
Cloud ↔ On-Premises Mobility
  • Up to 90X higher performance than CPUs on key workloads at one-third the cost
  • Over 4X higher inference throughput3 and 3X latency advantage over GPU-based solutions
  • Machine learning inference to video processing to any workload using the same accelerator card
  • As workload algorithms evolve, use reconfigurable hardware to adapt faster than fixed-function accelerator card product cycles
  • Deploy solutions in the cloud or on-premises interchangeably, scalable to application requirements
  • Applications available for common workloads, or build your own with the Application Developer Tool
