Ampere Altra Server Solution

Single Socket Chip with High Core Count for Cloud, HPC, and Edge Computing

Massive 80 Core CPU is Ready for ARM Platform

Adding Ampere's Altra processor using ARM to GIGABYTE's server portfolio offers more platform choices, x86 or ARM. Altra offers greater performance and power-efficiency, and fits easily into GIGABYTE's server design. The new evolution in chip design allows for greater performance at lower costs because the same amount of jobs will done with less nodes. Also, as server workflow continues to evolve, a system designed for cloud computing can be switched to a HPC system to fully utilize the server's value and get the most out of the investment.

Why Ampere ARM64 Servers

  • performance
    Performance Boost

    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.

  • high_efficiency
    Architecture Improvement

    The high core count CPU (on ARM architecture) eliminates the need for dual CPU (x86) systems while retaining performance and efficiency.

  • expansion
    Aggregate Powerhouse

    Ideal for the cloud where multiple, simultaneous jobs and consistent performance are essential, thus high core count CPUs are desired.

  • samrt_quick
    Superhighway of Data

    128 PCIe Gen4 lanes: more data can travel at one time, and faster throughput.

  • eco
    Green Savings

    Greater performance/watt compared to competition, Altra will continue to push up value and drive energy costs down.

  • friendly
    Cooperation

    GIGABYTE has developed products with ARM for almost 10 years. And will be ready to deliver new ARM architecture systems to the market.

The Way to ARM ServerReady
Customers want the OS to “Just work” without customization. Gigabyte is one of the major players in the ARM ServerReady program.

ARM Servers Transform Your Business

  • Cloud Servers

    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.

  • HPC Servers

    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

    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.
