Ampere is designing the future of hyperscale cloud and edge computing with the world's first cloud native processor. Built for the cloud with a modern 64-bit ARM server based architecture, Ampere gives customers the freedom to accelerate the delivery of all cloud computing applications. With industry-leading performance, power efficiency and linear scalability, Ampere processors are tailored for the continued growth of cloud and edge computing.
DESIGNED FOR THE MODERN DATA CENTER
Ampere Altra is a new class of CPU delivering predictable high performance, power efficiency and linear scalability. Some of the key highlights of this new server architecture include:
Top-end performance with highest performance/watt in a server class CPU
Industry-leading with up to 128 cores per CPU
Open-source hardware and software compliance across platform
Platforms with Ampere Altra offer up to 80 cores at up to 3.3 GHz speed or with Ampere Altra Max at up to 128 cores operating at a maximum of 3.0 GHz. Each core is single threaded by design with its own 64 KB L1 I-cache, 64 KB L1 D-cache, and a huge 1 MB L2 D-cache. This architectural approach fully eliminates noisy neighbor issues associated with multi-threaded designs and hence delivers predictable high performance during the entire workload execution period.
With leading power/core, and multi-socket support, Ampere Altra provides linear scalability to maximize the number of cores per rack, unparalleled in the industry.
Ampere processors provides industry leading power efficiency/core to establish new levels of power efficiency with scalability.
Predictable High Performance
Enable to run consistently at high frequencies and are built with large low-latency private caches to deliver high performance even under maximum load conditions.
