Cavium Boosts Per-Core Frequency of OCTEON Processor

Cavium Networks has boosted its OCTEON II CN63XX 2 to 6-core MIPS64 processors with up to 10.8GHz of 64 bit processing with each CPU core running at up to 1.8GHz to customers worldwide.

This new 1.8GHz operating frequency more than doubles the CPU core frequency available relative to the previous generation of OCTEON Plus processors.

The higher per-core frequency allows Cavium to address new markets including higher-end control plane, and integrated control and data plane applications that require high single-threaded software performance.
