  • how Intel is approaching sustainability in terms of the manufacturing and operation of processors;
  • how accelerators make computing better for Xeon W users;
  • the workloads Intel is targeting for workstations in the current environment;
  • what partners should be looking at and highlighting when offering new-generation workstations to their customers;
