Intel-Tsinghua Jintide Xeon Processor at Hot Chips 2019

My buddy Paul Alcorn is doing a hell of a job covering everything at Hot Chips 2019. Make sure you check out his coverage of the Intel-Tsinghua Jintide Xeon processor.

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.
