Qualcomm has launched Centriq 2400, the world’s first 10nm server chip highly optimized to address the high-performance and power-efficiency needs of today’s datacenters.
“It has Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies’ custom ARMv8-compliant core, which is highly optimized to deliver both high performance and power efficiency, and designed to tackle the most common datacenter workloads,” said the company.
The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 is the first chip in the Centriq product series, and consists of 48 Falkor CPU cores. Falkor CPU is an ARMv8 CPU core optimised for compute-intensive data center applications.
The firm recently unveiled the Snapdragon 835 SoC, its first processor based on Samsung’s 10nm process. The firm noted that the 10nm process technology allowed it to increase area efficiency by 30% and yields 27% better performance or up to 40% less power consumption than the Qualcomm’s 14nm Snapdragon 821 chip.
“Qualcomm requires the leading edge of integrated circuit technology to deliver high performance at low power for the newest premium smartphones. We are first in 10nm IC technology for mobile, and leveraging our expertise in ARM processors and system on chip design, we are the first with our Qualcomm Centriq family of server processors to bring the leading edge to the datacenter”, said Anand Chandrasekher, senior vice president and general manager, Qualcomm Datacenter Technologies, Inc.
The Qualcomm Centriq 2400 processort is now available for sampling for select customers, and will be commercially available in the second half of 2017.
