Qualcomm Tests 24-core ARM SoC For Servers

In its drive to enter the server processing units market, Qualcomm started a program called Server Development Platform, which has the sole aim of establishing Qualcomm as a major player in the server and data center industry via it’s SoC processing chips.  To do this Qualcomm has started to sample SoCs based on the AMRv9-A chips while starting technology collaborations with both Xilinx and Mellanox. The new SoC being tested is proposed for tackling common data centre workloads and machine learning, with testing beginning on Thursday this week. Apparently the new sampling process is part of server development program put together by Qualcomm, and is scheduled to last a couple of years. The new 24-core ARM chip is custom-built in prototype stage using FinFET technology, without mentioning any process manufacturing.…
