Qualcomm Samples 24-core Server Chip based on ARMv8-A

Qualcomm has begun sampling a 24-core SoC based on the ARMv8-A instruction set and built using advanced FinFet technology.  The company's Server Development Platform (SDP) is aimed at high-density data centers.


Qualcomm also announced two key partnerships.  The company is partnering with Xilinx to deliver heterogeneous computing solutions for data centers with Qualcomm’s server processor and Xilinx FPGAs. Qualcomm is partnering with Mellanox to enable advanced, cost effective platforms for servers and storage that deliver the fastest, most efficient interconnect solutions for data transfer and analysis with Qualcomm’s server CPU and Mellanox’s Ethernet and InfiniBand interconnect solutions.

"The release of our evaluation system is a major milestone for Qualcomm Technologies. As data centers 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 centers with Qualcomm-based server technologies. Our customers are eager to test and evaluate our Server Development Platform and begin porting their software. We are incorporating their feedback into our product offering with the goal of ensuring system and software readiness by the time we are in full production,” stated Anand Chandrasekher, senior vice president, Qualcomm Technologies.
