Intel’s Best DPU Will Be Commercially Available — Someday

UPDATE: One of the reasons why Intel spent $16.7 billion to acquire FPGA maker Altera six years ago was because it was convinced that its onload model — where big parts of the storage and networking stack were running on CPUs — was going to go out of favor and that companies would want to offload this work to network interface cards with lots of their own much cheaper and much more energy efficient processing.
