Qualcomm reveals 24-core ARMv8-A server SoC

Qualcomm gave a live demonstration of a new 24-core ARMv8-A SoC as part of its Server Development Platform (SDP), in San Francisco late last week. The SDP is aimed at ‘hyperscale data centre customers’ who undertake tasks like processing big data and machine learning. This ‘world class’ test system is already sampling in ‘tier one’ data centres, said Qualcomm, though it declined to name names. In other related announcements Qualcomm will partner with Xilinx on FPGA technology and Mellanox Technologies to offer Ethernet and InfiniBand interconnects for systems based on its new server SoC. “As data centres evolve to support the exponential growth and innovation in data, connectivity and cloud services, Qualcomm Technologies is creating an ecosystem to meet the needs of these next-generation data centres with Qualcomm-based server technologies,”…
