It also features the latest platform technologies like DDR5 PCI Gen 5 and Intel Wi-Fi 6e. New Xeon W powered workstations are built for today's most demanding workloads and for the workloads of the future. We're excited, to say the least.

I'll hand it over to Jonathan Patton from our product team to share more of the details. Hello everyone. I'm Jonathan Patton from the Creator and Workstation Solutions team.

By the numbers, this new Intel Xeon W platform features a breadth of improvements up to 56 cores in a single socket. Core Counts that on previous Intel based workstations would need two CPU sockets to achieve. Up to 4.8 gigahertz of Intel turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0 for increased system responsiveness to help you stay in the flow and up to four terabytes of DDR5 memory capacity delivering over double the memory bandwidth over previous generation DDR4 memory and up to 112 CPU PCI gen five lanes for system expansion, delivering nearly four times the PCIe bandwidth over previous generation workstation platforms. Comparing to our previous Gen 28 core processor, we see a 28% performance increase in single threaded tasks and more than twice the performance in Multi-Threaded tasks.

With our new flagship 56 core processor, the Intel Xeon W 9 3495 X And Spec Workstation 3.1, a benchmark designed to test total performance of a workstation. We deliver up to 140% more performance in workstation workloads in the media entertainment space. We see up to 130% more performance ensuring artists can achieve more iterations on their projects to further refine their creative vision for the engineering professionals.

We deliver up to 70% faster performance and modeling, simulation and visualization in the emerging data sciences. We see up to 75% faster in scientific computing and analysis, delivering more and higher quality data insights. I'll handle it back to Roger, who will show our new Intel Xeon W platform in action. We all know that reality capture is becoming ubiquitous in many fields architecture, city planning, moviemaking and game development.

These types of workflows highlight the compute power that is required for engineers and creatives to bring their visions closer to reality. Let's look at a workflow created by the 3D artist Stefan Ivanoff to recreate our headquarters in Santa Clara. This process starts by taking hundreds of high res images and importing them into one of many reality capture tools available. In this example, we're going to use the software called Reality Capture by Epic Games to create a point cloud. However, our headquarters has a lot of reflective windows, which is a challenge for this type of reality capture.

To make a more accurate model, we're going to use the point cloud data to create an accurate block out model of the area in Autodesk. 3DS, Max, including the locations of the reflective windows to create a more realistic looking model. We can now break the model into modules in 3DS max and use the scanned data to bake the textures onto those models.

The next step is to take the data into substance 3D Painter by Adobe to prepare the texture set for the full PBR materials which contain the needed texture information for tools like Unreal Engine five to make a rock look like a rock and an ear look like an ear. All of this allows us to digitally recreate a version of the Santa Clara headquarters ready to import into other tools. Now let's load the model into Unreal. This whole workload has benefited greatly from the increased performance of our Xeon W processors, enabling creators to iterate more quickly and see the direct result of their choices faster.

Now let's see how that model import into Unreal turned out. Virtual production is transforming the media and entertainment industry. Intel is proud to work with the leading companies that are driving virtual production, ensuring they have the processing power and AI capabilities in their workstations to meet their constantly evolving needs, both now and in the future. Film directors need to see in real time what's happening in the scene, and they need to be able to quickly move or change background details and as their scenes grow in complexity, they require more powerful workstations.

Hey, wait. This is the old logo. We're not supposed to use this anymore. Can someone please fix this? Thank you.

Now we spend most of every day at the corporate office. But let's go someplace a little more exciting. This is cool. How about something with a little more nightlife? Now this is more like, Hey, wait a second. I recognize this place.

This is dystopian future Danger Alley. With all the special effects turned on. And with the giant mutant monster dogs brains. Maybe this detour was a bad idea. We better get back to the office. But before we go.

This whole production was shot at an in-camera. VFX studio. In-camera VFX production is a sea change for television and films used for real time composition and set changes and dynamic, movable lighting for the most demanding production needs. Unlike green screens, this allows the actors to fully interact with their environment and create a more natural performance. This whole volume is powered by Intel and the VFX set is driven by our new Intel Xeon W processors. Thanks, Roger.

We are excited to bring over 50 workstation designs to market with our OEM, ODM and local OEM partners. Let's hear from some of our partners in the industry about the workstation solutions they're bringing to market.

Along with the breadth of technologies that the Xeon family brings to the table, we will drive faster performance, deliver more productivity to our customers. As we think about these customers, there's a spectrum. You have customers that are more interested in have workflows and applications that are more centered around single threaded performance.

And you have others are going to be more reliant on the multi-threaded. So let's start with those single threaded customers. In this case, the 4.8

gigahertz of Turbo Boost is going to be a game changer for those that care more about highly multithreaded applications. The combination of expansive core count and up to four terabytes of DDR5 memory will bring extreme performance to complex computational fluid, dynamic analysis reality capture, product simulation, as well as AI data science workflows where you're dealing with expansive data sets. We worked to engineer the best workstations for our customers so that they can take their passions and purpose even further, where they're giving them more time for iterations, testing and analysis on projects. We're giving the capability to take advantage of the most advanced features of applications or even creating their own applications without the hitches, glitches or downtime. We stand firmly behind precision workstations, their capabilities, knowing that they are the tools our customers rely on every day to get their best work done.

As we work with customers across the high performance categories of our portfolio, this is the professional creators and media and entertainment data scientists, engineers and architects. We're learning that they all face a common set of challenges. What we're seeing is that these professional creators are under a tremendous amount of pressure to accelerate their output. They want to make movies faster. They want to accelerate the iterations on their data. When we set out to develop a new product and in this case, a new portfolio, we always start with these customers.

And during development of this product line, we met with hundreds of customers, and we literally spent thousands of hours to understand how they work, understand the jobs to be done, the workflows they use.
