80 cores allows for more data to be processed and more jobs to be done at the same time, while running cool in a GIGABYTE chassis.
The high core count CPU (on ARM architecture) eliminates the need for dual CPU (x86) systems while retaining performance and efficiency.
Ideal for the cloud where multiple, simultaneous jobs and consistent performance are essential, thus high core count CPUs are desired.
Superhighway of Data
128 PCIe Gen4 lanes: more data can travel at one time, and faster throughput.
Greater performance/watt compared to competition, Altra will continue to push up value and drive energy costs down.
GIGABYTE has developed products with ARM for almost 10 years. And will be ready to deliver new ARM architecture systems to the market.
Cloud servers need high core count CPUs because they are employed in an environment where many requests are needed to be handled concurrently. Furthermore, storage access and tasks are needed to be completed faster while doing so more efficiently.
High Performance Computing servers are the real workhorses and need massive parallel computing capabilities. Also, since HPC servers often work in clusters where GPU intensive work is done, high memory bandwidth is important, as well as, fast storage access is necessary.
Edge servers need fast real-time computing on site, as they don't bounce processing to a main server. Likewise, they need an adequate storage capacity. By having the work done on site, there is a reduced data security risk.
